Our World School Curricula

 

At Our World School, we understand that no two children learn the exact same way, or at the exact same time and place on their journey to success. Because of this, Our World School utilizes several researched based curriculum options to create a personalized learning plan (PLP) that is customized to each individual child.

Unique Learning System: Unique Learning System is an award-winning, standards-based curriculum specifically designed so that students with special needs can access the general education curriculum.

In addition to the Unique Learning System, we use:
 
 

Math

 
  Touch Math is a multi-sensory program using signature “Touch Points” to engage students of all abilities and learning styles and teach all concepts from number recognition to time, money, and fractions.  
 

Reading, Spelling & Vocabulary

 
  PCI Reading utilizes precision and fluency teaching methods to build reading skills through researched retention, endurance, and application activates across multi-modal units.

SRA Reading Mastery is a research-based curriculum that provides intensive, explicit and systematic teaching through strategy-based instruction.
 
 

Language Arts

 
  Shurley Grammar integrates research proven methods to promote interaction with songs and jingles, as well provide immediate feedback with a Q&A process to analyze parts of speech.

  These subjects are taught using a collection of high quality units. Selection is based on student and classroom goals with emphasis on generalization within the community.

Handwriting

 
  Handwriting Without Tears is a research-based multi-sensory handwriting program that progresses from basic fine motor activities to printing and cursive writing.

Typing Without Tears is also utilized to teach students correct form in typing while working to increase fluency and accuracy in today’s technology-drive society.
 
 

Life Skills and Social Skills

 
  Our teachers utilize a selection of high-quality resources to provide our students with life skills and social skills that they can generalize to their natural environments. For many classrooms, this involves practicing classroom-taught skills in our community-based learning program.

 
  ABA Therapy is the application of the principles of learning and motivation from
Behavior Analysis, and the procedures and technology derived from those
principles, to the solution of problems of social significance.  "Socially significant behaviors" include reading, academics, social skills, communication, and adaptive living skills. Adaptive living skills include gross and fine motor skills, eating and food preparation, toileting, dressing, personal self-care, domestic skills, time and punctuality, money and value, home and community orientation, and work skills.

Choice Theory is a theory of internal behavioral control that emphasizes strong relationships, choice, rigorous expectations of quality and kind and skillful mentoring. Choice theory stresses 7 positive and connecting habits and 7 harmful habits. The positive habits are caring, contributing, befriending, listening, encouraging, trusting and supporting. The harmful habits are judging, nagging, rewarding to control, criticizing, blaming, complaining and punishing. Consistent applications of the tenants of Choice
Theory helps students, staff and parents develop relationships, social emotional stability and a culture of engagement that is foundational to academic success.
