Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Alamo Heights District Curriculum

The Mathematics curriculum has developed two sets of consensus maps divided by grades K-6 and 7-12 based on advice by the mathematics teachers of the district. The curriculum for grades K-6 focuses on the following core set of principles: number concepts, time, measurement, graphing, fractions, basic geometry, computation, basic problem solving, and probability. Each topic is initially taught at the basic kindergarten level with progressive introduction of more challenging principles.

The curriculum for grades 7-12, in contrast, has been developed with regard to the individual mathematical subjects such as algebra, geometry, and statistics and probabilities. Students are expected to learn advanced principles for each subject while developing general skills related to problem solving and critical thinking. The ultimate goal of the mathematics curriculum is to produce students who can use mathematical concepts in a logical manner to critically analyze a diverse set of challenges.

Chalk Talk: Developing Critical Reading Skills

Developing the skills of critical reading involves many different ways of thinking. One of the first questions that readers should ask is about the purpose of the text and what the author hopes for the reader to get out of reading it. Also, they should think about whether the author succeeds in getting across their purpose or proving their point. With non-fiction, readers should look for bias and whether the author is considering all sides of an issue. Readers of non-fiction should also look closely at the sources cited, if any, to determine whether the supporting evidence is based on sound resources. Generating questions is another step critical readers take and it helps inform the information they seek out next.
