Chalk Talk: What College and Career Readiness Mean
As students learn under recently adopted standards, the way your child learns can change. Instruction changes to accommodate the new concepts, or way in which concepts are taught, and new assessments are created to measure student progress. Student learning may be more advanced or adjusted. The intention is to prepare students for skills needed in college – such as problem solving, reasoning, critical thinking and analysis. Students are going to expected to apply these skills in and out of the classroom - everyday activities they would be involved in during a career. Demonstration on tests and quizzes will require students providing support for their answer with reasons and/or evidence. As your child progress to the next grade level, learn what concepts will be taught and the real-world application the concepts could be applicable to. By understanding what your child will be learning and how they will be expected to demonstrate can benefit your student even more. School websites, educational services and online resources can provide additional information to help you, as well as the material your child’s teacher will provide you every school year.
