Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Clemmons District Curriculum
Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools have incorporated learning-focused lesson plans into the curriculum in all subject areas. This starts with a content map of the unit of instruction, which includes the key learnings students are expected to acquire at the end of the unit, the essential questions that drive the unit, the essential questions for each lesson, the concepts taught, and the vocabulary that is focused on.
The next step is to determine the culminating activity of the unit—the task students will perform or product they will create to demonstrate their learning; this can include a written assessment, an oral presentation, or a written report. A description of the culminating activity, the essential questions that surround it, and a rubric or other method of assessing or scoring the product or performance need to be developed. When teachers actually launch the learning activities, they are expected to activate students’ prior knowledge of the topic as well as present them with the content map and key vocabulary terms.

- Ward Elementary Gives Back During Souper Bowl - Two sets of boxes—one for the Carolina Panthers and the other for the Denver Broncos—sat at Ward Elementary School, waiting to be filled with canned goods. Although the boxes for the local Carolina Panthers had many more cans than those for their 2016 Super Bowl opponent, the important thing was that all the cans would be donated to a local food pantry as part of the school’s Souper Bowl food drive.
- Meadowlark Middle Schools Raises Money for Brenner Children’s Hospital - In anticipation of the Carolina Panthers making it to the Super Bowl, Meadowlark Middle School’s Friends of Rachel Club held a fundraising event during which everyone who donated at least one dollar could wear his/her favorite jersey to school. With a sea of Panthers jerseys abound, it is no surprise that the school was able to raise $1,000 for Brenner Children’s Hospital. The Friends of Rachel Club chose a local children’s hospital as their charity of choice, as the Carolina Panthers organization also strongly supports a children’s hospital in Charlotte.
