THE ACADEMIC CURRICULUM AT MIDLAND

The Midland School

SuperUser Account 0 897 Article rating: No rating

Midland’s academic programs are developed for the individual student. While each student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) is the foundation of his or her academic program, it’s the use of integrated and multi-sensory teaching methods that make the curriculum work so well. Instruction is implemented in one-to-one and small group settings. Classrooms and programs are dynamic—changing as necessary to meet each student’s needs and consider their learning styles and developmental levels. Teachers and supervisory personnel, in consultation with the local district child study team and parents, select the best techniques to use with each student.

Social Studies and Science units are studied school wide and change three times per school year. Many reading, language arts, and math lessons are planned to coordinate with these themes. In addition reading, language arts, and math skills are woven through every other curricular area, including independent living, music, art, shop, physical education, science, social studies, speech, and program center (library and computers). This interrelationship of curricular areas provides multiple opportunities to practice skills in a familiar context.
