Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Point District Curriculum

In Language Arts, students should be able to read a literary text, form an opinion about it, and demonstrate support for that opinion, using evidence from the text. As early as kindergarten, they are encouraged to form opinions about the texts they read, and record those opinions in writing. As they grow older, they are asked to explain their opinions, and to look for evidence in the text. The goal is for students to be critical readers who can explain what the elements of a story do.

This applies just as much for informational texts, including the readings done in classes other than Language Arts (and informational texts read in English as well). Students begin reading informational texts in elementary school, both as part of their reading and language arts practice, and in other subjects. They are asked in the early grades to demonstrate that they understand the content of the text, but the emphasis is on how that information may be more broadly applied.

West Point District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The curriculum in Davis School District is based on the Common Core, a national set of standards aiming to prepare students for success after college, and the Utah Core Standards, which interpret the Common Core for Utah Schools. Davis School District uses the Davis Essential Skills and Knowledge (DESK) Program to ensure these standards apply in all schools across the district. Since the goal of the Utah Core Standards are to produce college and career ready students by twelfth grade, they set progressive standards for each grade that allow students to build up to that point with practice and repetition.

We currently cover the following West Point-area school district: Davis School District.

He also serves as the school’s instructional coach, assisting teachers to improve their lesson plans and teaching skills.
  • Homemade History Projects - Students at West Point Elementary participated in a quilting project as a part of their unit on Colonial America.

  • Human Rights Awareness Project - Students at West Point Junior High made paper airplanes as a part of a schoolwide focus on human rights. Students learned about the universal human rights promoted by the UN, and then created paper airplanes with those rights written on them to help inspire them to think about how those rights could be promoted and protected.

Chalk Talk: Staying Motivated

It can be hard to stay motivated all the time on school work, particularly when it is frustrating or difficult going. Young students can often be kept motivated with a rewards system, particularly one that focuses on completing tasks, rather than achieving certain grades or successes. As students get older, help them keep focused on their schoolwork by checking in with them about what is due, making sure they have a plan and schedule that gives them enough time to finish everything, and offering to find them help for particularly difficult subjects and areas. Students need to figure out what sort of work pattern helps them the most and what their own needs are for schoolwork.
