Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bryant District Curriculum
Bryant Public Schools use the Common Core Standards and will begin implementing the PARCC assessment during the 2014-15 school year. The district was eager to integrate these standards because it wants its students to be well-prepared for college and their careers and to be able to compete with people all around the world in the workforce. The website also states that it is confident that both its educators and students will excel under the new standards.
The district has created a website that is entirely dedicated to the Common Core Standards and is very informative for parents and students. Each grade level has a “pacing guide” that details what students will learn during each portion of the school year for both math and literacy. There are also yearly plans for literacy and math for all grade levels. Finally, the website contains many links and resources for both parents and teachers.

- Art Students Celebrate Their County’s Past - The Bryant High School Art Club has created a mural, which many drivers pass each day, that is an ode to the Saline County’s history and growth. The mural’s first phase represents the country’s past, displaying the county’s once vast Native American population, a train to show the area’s famous railroad stop, and mining equipment to depict that it is a well-known producer of bauxite. Over 30 students have worked on the mural and are in the process of creating the second phase, which focuses on the area’s present and future.

Chalk Talk: Can E-books Make the Difference?
In today’s digital age, more and more children of increasingly younger ages are becoming less and less interested in reading. As a part of the technology boom, e-readers such as Kindles and Nooks are being used more frequently. E-books offer several advantages over their traditional print counterparts: They are typically less expensive, they usually do not require Internet access, they can be downloaded almost instantly, and Kindle and Nook apps can be installed on iPads and other tablets for free. Today’s children often covet and thrive with technology, so giving them the opportunity to use e-books may increase their motivation to read. E-books offer a variety of interactive features—highlighting, audio, music, etc.—that can engage young readers. They may not be the only answer to solving the reading motivation problem—other factors such as student choice, interest, and appropriate reading levels must be taken into consideration as well—but they are an option that should certainly be explored with reluctant readers.
