Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sheldon District Curriculum

The English curriculum includes the study of literature. Students discover how to read to support facts found in the text. They also discover how to cite the text they are reading, as well as how to find a theme, or a central idea. They then look for evidence supporting this theme, including how the theme showed itself and how it end in an objective summary. The characters they study develop different motivations, interactions and they move the plot forward and the students learn how each of these are accomplished.

The Mathematics curriculum at Sheldon Community School District include geometry, number and quantity, algebra, functions, modeling and statistics. Students begin to develop problem-solving skills in each of these topics in elementary and middle school. When the students are in high school they study imaginary numbers to develop complex numbers. Each of the functions, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are addressed in new ways in each area of mathematics and they are expanded upon when studying exponents.

Chalk Talk: Professional Resume Tips

Every profession is different, but the format for the resume should follow some general advice. For students who are inclined to go into an education profession, it is important for to include information about field experiences and student teaching because these things likely represent the bulk of their experience in the classroom even though they were unpaid. Each field experience should include the school, the school district and its location, the rough dates the experience occurred, and a brief description of the candidate’s duties (e.g.: working with small groups of students). Student teaching is the major experience, so all of the candidate’s tasks need to be highlighted in greater detail in list form. Candidates may choose to list these experiences in a separate section of the resume or tie them in with volunteer experiences. It is a good idea for candidates to briefly describe any volunteering they have done in order to demonstrate that they are well-rounded individuals; they may choose to focus on community service that involved working with children or that required skills useful for the education sector, such as volunteering in a library.
