Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hiawatha District Curriculum

Cedar Rapids Community School District incorporates a high-quality, rigorous curriculum that aligns with the Iowa Core Standards. Iowa Core spells out what students need to be able to do in each of the core content areas and in each grade level by the end of the school year and include 21st century skills. The district utilizes an integrated approach to English language arts that builds the foundational skills needed for reading, writing, speaking, and listening. In order for students to be successful in a 21st century society, they must be able to read critically and closely and communicate their thoughts clearly.

The Iowa Core Standards and the Standards for Mathematical Practice are integrated with the goals of students thinking and reasoning mathematically, solving real-world problems, gaining a deep understanding of mathematical concepts, and gaining skill proficiency. The district places great emphasis on the “innovation” of its curriculum and instruction in order to incorporate ever-important 21st century skills. This means focusing on improving curricular areas and implementing new, research-based practices.

Chalk Talk: Children’s Literature Spotlight: Parts of Speech

Grammar can be a dry subject, but there are some fun books that can help teach different parts of speech. “Dearly, Nearly, Insincerely: What Is an Adverb?”—written by Brian P. Cleary—explains the different functions of adverbs and gives countless examples of each type. “If You Were an Adjective”—written by Michael Dahl—details the things that adjectives do—as well as comparative and superlative adjectives—and also gives countless examples. “If You Were a Pronoun”—written by Nancy Loewen—explains the many purposes of the use of pronouns and gives example sentences using actual pronouns. It also provides “before” (the use of pronouns) and “after” sentences when appropriate.
