Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ferguson District Curriculum

The mathematics standards in the Common Core provide students with the opportunity to think like mathematicians when solving real-world problems. Elementary curriculum focuses more on number operations and algebra, middle school curriculum has an emphasis on geometry, and the high school curriculum sees more of a real-world focus involving communication and problem-solving.

Science courses developed from Common Core State Standards emphasize disciplinary core ideas, such as physical, life, and earth sciences, as well as engineering and technology. The science courses teach students much more than scientific content knowledge – students also learn how to conduct experiments safely and in advanced courses have the opportunity to design their own experiments. Students also learn how to communicate their scientific thought, including hypotheses, experiment results and findings, and final conclusions.

Ferguson District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

To ensure that our students are prepared to live and compete for work in a fast-paced global market, the school districts serving the Ferguson area have adopted the Common Core State Standards. As they progress through the grade levels, English/Language Arts students read more for gaining factual information and using evidence for argument writing. While the classics still have a spot in the curriculum, secondary students read mostly non-fiction text.

We currently cover the following Ferguson-area school districts: Ferguson-Florissant School District, Hazelwood School District, Jennings School District, and Riverview Gardens School District.

Chalk Talk: Are the Common Core State Standards a Curriculum?

No, the Common Core State Standards are not a curriculum in the most precise definition of the word. The standards are simply the expectations for students by grade level and content area. They are statements, or targets for learning, of what students should be able to do by the end of the school year or course. Teachers have been using standards for many decades to develop curriculum, and that process will not change with the adoption of the Common Core State Standards. The standards tell the teachers what students will know and be able to do. How teachers decide to teach the knowledge and skills necessary for students to be successful with the standards is up to the teachers and any additional requirements needed for a specific child. Ask your child’s teacher for more details about the curriculum being taught in your child’s classroom.
