ELAK-2 Curriculum - Core Knowledge: The idea behind Core Knowlede is simple and powerful: knowledge builds on knowledge. The more you know, the more you will be able to learn. Every child should learn in language arts and literature, history, science, art, music, math, georgraphy, and the visual arts. There is a greater emphasis on critical thinking and comprehension.3-5 Curriculum - Expeditionary Learning: Expeditionary Learning schools inspire the motivation to learn, engage teachers, and students in new levels of focus and effort, and transform schools into places where students and adults become leaders of their own learning. We provide a model that challenges students – even those starting with low skill levels – with high-level tasks and active roles in the classroom. This model succeeds in urban, rural, and suburban schools and at every grade level.6th grade Curriculum - Odell Education: Odell Education develops model approaches and materials for literacy education. Our vision is for those models to serve as catalysts for creativity and collaboration across traditional school and state boundaries.
