Cherokee District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

Cherokee Community School District serves slightly over 1,000 students in three schools. The district goals include successfully implementing initiatives that enhance teaching and learning, increasing the integration and the alignment of the Iowa Core Curriculum, and improving communication between all stakeholders within the district. Cherokee Middle School incorporates Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Testing to, as the name states, measure students’ academic progress in math, reading, and science three times a year. Data from these assessments helps drive instruction for the teachers and administrators.

We currently cover the following Cherokee-area school district: Cherokee Community School District.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cherokee District Curriculum

The Iowa Core Curriculum provides a scope and sequence for learning in Literacy, Math, Science, Social Studies, and 21st Century Skills. Grade-level expectations for each subject are provided, and teachers are able to work together to find areas of overlap so that they may integrate the teaching and learning of different subjects. Students are assessed annually on the grade-level expectations set out in the Iowa Core and these are used to demonstrate each student's proficiency and readiness for the year ahead.

The district strives to implement the Characteristics of Effective Instruction and the Universal Constructs. The Characteristics of Effective Instruction are Teaching for Understanding, Student-Centered Classrooms, Teaching for Student Differences, Rigor and Relevance, and Assessment for Learning. The Universal Constructs are Critical Thinking, Complex Communication, Creativity, Collaboration, Flexibility and Adaptability, and Productivity and Accountability. The district uses the curriculum mapping program Curriculum Manager to help align the curriculum.

Chalk Talk: Gap Years Program Ideas

Taking a gap year between high school graduation and college is becoming a common goal. Students who take this time from formal education come away with a willingness to face the education that is before them. For students that enjoy the city, they may want to look into a 10-month program called City Year. The volunteers work in groups of 6-12 members and help in schools as either tutors or mentors. They may also head youth leadership programs or help to revitalize neighborhoods. City Year is located in 17 areas and there are four times a year they accept applications. Only one out of four applicants are accepted, so it is good to get the applications in as soon as possible. To find more information students can check City Year.
