Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bellingham District Curriculum
The way tudents are taught, as well as how the material is taught, has shifted from teacher-centered to student-centered instruction. The district emphasizes literacy across content areas. One main component of the Common Core State Standards is creating literacy in each core area of learning, such as Social Studies/History, Science, and Mathematics, in addition to English Language Arts. Another curricular emphasis is on writing, both for personal or creative and for analytic and informational purposes.
Literacy refers not only to reading and understanding words, but also charts, graphs, formulas, equations, and a number of other artifacts specific to each content area. Other goals include technical and scientific literacy, and the goal is for students to be able to communicate their understanding of these subjects. By instructing students to be literate in each area of the curriculum, the district’s focus shifts toward ensuring that each student is career or college ready with 21st century skills.
