Definition of Curriculum
Curriculum is a written plan that drives instruction. It delineates the skills and concepts taught and evaluated to foster and increase student achievement. Composed of a content area philosophy, strands, program goals, aligned scope and sequence, and learner outcomes, it is intentionally designed to meet district, state, and national standards.
Philosophy of Language Arts:
Students in the RLSD have the opportunity to emerge as successful readers, writers, speakers, and listeners in a diverse cultural environment. Language arts instruction values the unique ideas and voices children bring with them to school and explores their potential as life-long learners. Through effective use of these communication skills, student ambassadors will enrich themselves and their world.
Philosophy of Mathematics
All students in the Red Lake School District have the ability to learn mathematics. Environment, culture, and a variety of learning styles influence this ability. Wherever possible, mathematical concepts should be taught in a culturally relevant and appropriate manner. Given this, students will have the means to function effectively in society.
