Bethel District and Curriculum
Bethel Public Schools have initiated a new set of goals to improve student success at all levels. They are working to increase the number of students enrolled in college level courses, many of which earn them credits at The University of Connecticut and West Connecticut University. They are striving to create lesson that are enriching and engaging for students and motivates them to not only enjoy school, but excel as well.
We currently cover the following Bethel-area school district: Bethel School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bethel District Curriculum
All Bethel schools follow the Common Core Standards of curriculum. Within these standards, students are better prepared for both college, as well as the workforce. In English, there is strong focus on reading, writing and speaking comprehension and literacy. Reading a diverse range of texts is used as a base for growth in this subject; students read non-fiction and use media as texts along with independent reading choices. With writing and discussion intertwined with reading, students are able to learn how to talk about and express their ideas.
In Mathematics, fewer topics are covered each year so that students have the opportunity to understand more deeply the content that they are learning. The same philosophy applies in all other content areas like Science and Social Studies. With the increase of technology in the world, so too in the classroom has technology expanded in use. Topics such as how technology changes and shapes society bring together all these areas in a relevant area of study.

Chalk Talk: The Role of Professional Development
There is much debate about the choice to offer professional development and training as key to encouraging teacher’s success. Studies have shown that students tend to do better with more experienced teachers so perhaps districts should strive to offer a wide variety of staff development opportunities. They should encourage their existing teachers to hone their skills and learn new and better teaching practices. This not only saves districts money but increases student success.
