Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Columbus District Curriculum
In teaching English, Reading, and Language Arts, the goal is to tie the skills of reading, writing, speaking, and listening together. Students learn all skills simultaneously, so that they can understand how the skills relate to and build upon each other. To further show students the relevance of the subject, teachers try to connect their classroom instruction with the world around them. Ultimately, students must become comfortable expressing themselves in both written and spoken formats, master reading comprehension skills, and expand their vocabulary.
The Math curriculum is similarly designed to emphasize key areas of learning while having a range of skills developed within each area. Algebra, geometry, statistics and data analysis, and increasingly technology are all areas of study in Math. Students develop skills working with equations, factoring and modeling, enabling their mathematic reasoning abilities.

About Columbus, Ohio
Columbus is the capital of Ohio. The city is located in Franklin County, and is the most populated city in the state and the 14th most populated city in the United States. Named after Christopher Columbus, the city was planned to be a political centre by the Ohio legislature in 1812. The first railroad in the city arrived in 1850, which helped kick-start its growth. Today, the city’s economy has diversified to include education and health, transportation and utilities, and professional and business services. The city’s geographical location has made it a transportation centre, as the city is connected extensively to the rest of the United States by railroads, an extensive highway network and an international airport. About half the U.S. population is located within a 500-mile radius of Columbus.
The city of Columbus has been highly decorated with awards for its reputation as a good city to do business in. Columbus has been ranked as of “The 6 Best Big Cities” in 2016 by Money Magazine, who also called the city the best in the Midwest, citing its excellent wage growth and highly educated workforce. In 2012, the city was also ranked in BusinessWeek’s “50 Best Cities in the United States” Other awards the city has received include Forbes giving Columbus an “A” grade for being one of the top cities for business in the United States, and being ranked number 1 by Forbes as the up-and-coming tech city in the United States.

The area is listed on the US National Register of Historic Places, and is one of the world’s premier historic restorations. The area was originally settled in the early to mid-19th century by a large number of German Immigrants coming to the Columbus area. Today, visitors to the area can enjoy a variety of dining options from one of the locally owned restaurants such as Schmidt’s Sausage Haus and Schmidt’s Fudge Haus, both of which have been in German Village for 120 years.
The Easton Town Center contrasts German Village as it is the most modern neighborhood in the city. Commonly referred to as “Easton”, the area is an indoor and outdoor shopping complex located in the northeast part of the city of Columbus. The complex is designed to look like a self-contained “town”, with buildings in streets being modelled off American cities and towns in the early to mid 20th century.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Reading
Communication is the key to success in any field and the student who desires career success needs to master this skill. It all starts with reading, even at a very early age. Countless researchers have shown that reading aloud to a young child, and encouraging children to read to themselves as they get older, has long-term benefits. Students will expand their vocabulary naturally, become familiar with the basic structure of sentences and paragraphs, develop their imagination, and increase their attention span, and - not the least important – discover the fascinating, always-expanding world of stories.
