Curriculum

CORE KNOWLEDGE:

Bethke has implemented the Core Knowledge Curriculum in grades K-5. 

Developed by E.D. Hirsch, the Core Knowledge curriculum ensures every child receives a guaranteed and viable curriculum that is solid, sequenced, specific, and shared.  Integrating problem solving and critical thinking into each unit, energetic staff members work closely with students and families to monitor growth in all areas.  Students are engaged in content rich units that stimulate independent thought and inquiry.  Students show learning through a variety of methods including multimedia projects and presentations.

Please view the Core Knowledge Pacing Guide in the document section to the left to learn more about social studies, science, and specials units. 

 

CORE KNOWLEDGE LANGUAGE ARTS (CKLA):

CKLA was adopted in the fall of 2023. View this link for more information. 

 

MATH: enVision 2.0

enVision Mathematics focuses on deep conceptual math understanding aided by visual models, personalized learning, and 3-act tasks. Comprehensive vertical alignment from Kindergarten through Algebra 2 helps students address mathematical standards in the most effective way.
