Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Canton District Curriculum
Canton Public Schools provides challenging educational experiences to develop the social, emotional intellectual, and physical potential of its students. Full implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for mathematics and language arts is currently occurring this school year. Language arts curriculum will require students to use reading, writing, speaking, and listening to develop knowledge of literature. Reading comprehension skills and understanding complex texts is a cornerstone of the language arts curriculum.
The mathematics standards begin with students gaining a foundation in numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and decimals. Higher-level mathematical skills including geometry, algebra, and statistics will be discussed at the middle school level. High school math standards require critical thinking mathematical skills to real-world issues and problems. A commitment to college and career readiness is the framework of the CCSS curriculum.

Chalk Talk: Effectively Using Learning Styles in the Classroom
Classroom of the past were those of straight rows, students quietly sitting still, and the teacher in the front of the classroom passing along the information or content. With better research, we have found that not all students learn in this traditional manner. Research suggests that students have learning styles which affects the way they organize and take in information. The three major learning styles are visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. Trying to incorporate the three learning styles into every lesson is a formidable task; however, it is important to try to find areas in which a variety of learning tasks can best meet your student’s needs. While giving auditory information is a daily instructional strategy, adding a visual such as a graphic organizer or picture map with the content will really help visual learners with the information. Finding natural places to incorporate simulations, role-plays, debates, labs, field trips, or manipulatives are great tools for best meeting the needs of your kinesthetic learners who are often overlooked. Try incorporating a variety of learning tools to help your students achieve!
