Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Enfield District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, student’s education begins with a focus on literacy in their reading, writing and verbal communications. Literary analysis, word study, and the development of means to communicate ideas to different types of audiences, are all taught. Students are expected to develop presentation skills in writing and speaking. Research and evaluation skills are also focused on, and students are expected to bring a critical eye to media as well.
In Mathematics, students cover topics in numeracy, geometry, algebra, and data analysis over their years in a pattern that extends their knowledge in each topic over their school years. The curriculum aims to draw out students’ problem solving abilities so they may understand the best, most precise, method to solve a problem and know how to communicate their work process. Likewise, in other core subjects, learning follows major topical strands allowing for a more in-depth learning experience.

Chalk Talk: Teaching Kids to Think
We often think about education being the accumulation of knowledge and facts. It should be however, so much more than that. Teachers and parents have to start pushing their kids to think and problem solve. Students often want to just know the facts that will get the right answer but often are frustrated when asked to think for themselves. They might even see it as being the fault of the teacher but if done right, the teacher is actually doing them a great service. A teacher should guide them, but not just give them answers. Giving students questions that cause them to apply multiple facets of information is critical to creating problem solvers who know how to think, not just memorize facts. Parents must be allies in this mission as well. Higher education is all about applying what you know in an advanced way so the sooner we push our kids higher, the better they will do.
