Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Albertville District Curriculum
Developing speaking and listening skills is an essential component of the English language arts curriculum. Students participate in a variety of discussions, including those that are class-based, group-based, and one-on-one, to develop strong speaking and listening skills. Students take turns offering insights and opinions, and responding to the insights and opinions of others in a helpful and respectful manner. Communication strategies, including using eye contact, nonverbal communication, and active listening skills to enhance the effectiveness of a message, are discussed and practiced as well.
Elementary math learners in Albertville learn basic concepts related to algebra. Students learn about associative, communicative, and distributive properties and use that knowledge to solve problems using whole numbers. Learners also utilize their understanding of order of operations to create equivalent numerical expressions. Equations are introduced as well, with students developing the ability to determine whether an equation is true or false. Evaluation of expressions is a part of the curriculum as well.

Chalk Talk: Quick Guide to the Common Core
The Common Core State Standards are a nationalized K-12 set of standards intended to increase rigor, establish a common set of standards across states, and prepare students for college or career. The standards have been adopted by 43 states, Washington, D.C., four U.S. territories, and the U.S. Department of Defense Education Activity. Contrary to what some people believe, the standards are not a curriculum, but a guideline for educators to use when developing their own curriculum and learning activities. The standards focus on 21st century skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, and effective communication. Rather than detailing an extensive list of benchmarks at each grade level, the Common Core seeks to focus on broad, essential skills students need for success.
