|FROM GOOD TO GREAT!|
At Linder Elementary School academics is very important to us. We teach language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies skills.
We use the AISD Bureau of Curriculum & Instruction to maximize student success.
At Linder Elementary School we use a balanced literacy approach to the teaching of reading and writing. Balanced literacy provides structures and supports that enable all students to acquire the knowledge, skills, and habits needed to meet or exceed the standards in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Teaching and learning are active social processes. Learning environments are organized for effort so that thinking is modeled and analyzed and all students are provided with coaching and feedback. Instruction is scaffolded with the goal of guiding all students toward independence.
Students at Linder will acquire the mathematics knowledge and skills necessary to be productive, successful, and fulfilled citizens. We believe:
At Linder, we establish routines and procedures to build successful student scientists. A successful experience in science begins with how to be an active scientist, how to speak scientifically, and how to communicate scientific thinking and data. Linder teachers use Stages of Inquiry that allow them and students to work together as a team to work through concepts. At first the teacher demonstrates and guides the lesson. Ultimately the students gain the confidence to construct independent investigations.
Our science curriculum includes a study of the following:
Our social studies curriculum includes the study of history, geography, economics, government, citizenship, sociology, and culture.
