The Multigrade Classroom
The Adventist multigrade curriculum enables learners to develop a life of faith in God, and use their knowledge, skills, and understandings to serve God and humanity.
A well-planned behavior management and organization system is key to creating a classroom conducive to learning, while establishing norms of behavior that help each child feel safe and protected.
Ongoing learning opportunities for teachers, staff, and administrators are provided by professional development products and experiences.
Being a Seventh-day Adventist teaching-principal is an awesome opportunity and responsibility to serve God, change lives, and further the mission of the world church.
Technology in the
Digital technologies assist learners in thinking critically, communicating, collaborating,
God designed us to learn in varied ways. The brain is the most complex technological tool available to learners today. Other technology involves the digital media which is another tool used to facilitate the learning process. The elementary Technology Curriculum is broken down into three main areas: Digital Learning , Digital Fluency , and Digital Citizenship.
The goal of Digital Learning is to assist learners to think critically, communicate, collaborate, and to create.
Digital Fluency offers opportunities for students to develop academically, socially, and spiritually. It helps them to excel in their understanding and use of digital technological resources.
Digital Citizenship teaches students to be safe and responsible citizens of the digital community while honoring God. Digital Citizenship promotes respect for and collaboration with other members of global internet community.
There is no formal textbook for technology, however, there are standards and many resources listed below to help teachers incorporate technology across multiple subject areas in the multigrade classroom. In multigrade classrooms that include kindergarten, teachers have the option of using the kindergarten level of the NAD adopted textbooks or Kindergarten Stepping Stones which is the NAD integrated kindergarten curriculum.
K-2 BRIDGE is an integrated curriculum for K-1 or K-2 multigrade classrooms. Some units are currently available while others are in development.
