Willows District and Curriculum
The curriculum that is used in Willows Unified is a far-reaching and very detailed description for learning expectations across subjects and grade levels. The California Content Standards follow the framework developed in the Common Core Standards, which has become a national standard for rigorous, clear, and high-quality model of a curriculum.
The curriculum is designed to accomplish a number of goals. Students must learn basic skills that support broader concepts or principles, and be prepared to use the ideas in a variety of ways. Students are meant to be prepared for the goals they have for themselves in terms of college and career. And, the curriculum should aim to develop critical abilities for the whole student while also providing for service learning and character education opportunities.
In Language Arts, the broad goals of literacy and communication are outlined through the strands of reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Within this, the expectations for the types of comprehension or analysis students need to do are detailed grade by grade. With writing, students are expected to develop a process for writing, be prepared to write in different modes, and use the language conventions properly.
We currently cover the following Willows-area school district: Willows Unified School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Willows District Curriculum
Math has been laid out in such a way that students start with a broad base which narrows in scope by the time they are in high school. In the early grades, students learn some major skills in topics such as numerical operations, geometry, or data analysis. In high school, there will be a full year focus in algebra, geometry, statistics, and other departmental offerings. At the high school level, students are taught skills like constructing and using mathematic models, using complex equations and expressions, or turning raw data into a usable form with the goal of giving students what they need to reason out best methods for solving a problem.
Science serves the broad goal of teaching the scientific process, and the curriculum provides clear detail as to the content base students should receive at each grade-level. With this design, teachers have the opportunity to gauge both the broad awarenesses that students develop, and their ability to complete specific tasks through a variety of types of assessments from the formal exam to the more engaging project-based, authentic assessments.
