How Does Our Curriculum Promote Success?
Paragon© propels student achievement in Mosaica Education schools; therefore, a cumulative understanding is best accomplished when your student continues with us throughout his or her elementary and middle school years. At every grade level, the fundamental skills of reading, writing, listening, communicating, and presenting are integral and ongoing. Paragon keeps building on prior knowledge so that your student will gain ground and accelerate achievement with each passing year, a trend that defies the odds in traditional public education.
In Middle School, students will delve into Paragon© Humanities, which is organized into four quarter units, rather than the eight units found in the elementary grades. This provides the opportunity for students to explore concepts and ideas in greater depth through research, primary source documents, literature, and hands-on learning. Like the elementary grades, the units are structured around essential questions in world history, civics, geography, economics, and social studies. Middle School students will also begin their studies of Paragon© World Literature. Each quarter, they will read a novel, biography, myth, collection of folk tales, or another genre that corresponds to the content in Paragon© Humanities. The interdisciplinary connections make the learning engaging, meaningful, and memorable for students.
