Kyrene Monte Vista
In our class the core curriculum will consist of Kyrene’s grade-level curriculum in all subject areas. Kyrene’s gifted language arts curriculum will provide the basis for more challenging learning in reading, writing, and vocabulary for students advanced in those areas. The grade-level science, social studies, and health curriculums will be supplemented by enrichment experiences and by the in-depth learning to which this unique grouping arrangement lends itself.
I will follow Kyrene’s philosophy of continuous progress—particularly in language arts and in math—so that students may be challenged at an appropriate level of difficulty. At the same time, opportunities will be provided to apply and extend content knowledge and skills. Student workload will be designed to be the same in amount as for other students in 4th grade, but it will be different in content.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, I will provide opportunities for students to learn and practice the interpersonal skills so critical to success. Presentation skills, public speaking proficiency, and the various skills involved in polite and intelligent discussion will be emphasized. Issues related to differences and giftedness will be explored in a safe setting.
