Language Arts Curriculum
Although not bound by the FNSBSD English/Language Arts curriculum adoptions or suggested curriculum materials, The Watershed School follows the Ongoing Learner Goals, Concepts, and Mastery Core Objectives of the Fairbanks North Star Borough K-8 English/Language Arts Curriculum adopted May 3, 2005. The writers of the district’s curriculum, along with the FNSBSD Curriculum Department, crafted a solid curriculum based upon excellent language arts pedagogy.
Setting The Watershed School apart from most language arts programs will be the direct connection to our science and social studies curricular units. This is based on The Watershed School’s strong philosophy of thematic instruction. 50% of language arts instruction time will reinforce and relate to concepts covered in the science and social studies curriculum.
