Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Geddes District Curriculum
The Common Core is a set of standards that requires students to be able to read closely and attentively in a wide range of fiction and non-fiction texts. The curriculum also encourages students to develop other important literacy skills such as researching, listening, and expressing ones thoughts though written and verbal communication. Another standard used to prepare students pertains to writing. Students will work on all genres of writing, but will pay special attention to expository writing and using this writing in real-life contexts.
The Mathematics standards require student in the early grades to develop an understanding of core mathematics concepts such as operational sense, measurement and data analysis, problem solving, and mathematic reasoning. As students move into higher grades they learn to use their understanding of these concepts to see how math is used in real life, for instance, understand the role of statistics in creating the US Census and understanding how it is used to make political and economic decisions.

Chalk Talk: The Class Size Debate
Over the past few decades more and more people who speak with actual or theoretical knowledge of education environments have come to focus on one issue in particular: class size. Many of these experts would have you believe that class size is the determining factor when it comes to quality and efficacy of education. This argument seems reasonable enough; however, it undermines the effort that teachers put into teaching their classes each and every day. Saying there are too many students in a class does not take into account how teacher handle those students, nor does it address how students deal with each other based on the environment the teacher creates. A class with four students and one bad teacher isn’t an ideal environment for learning. In fact, a class with 35 students and one good teacher is a better environment for learning. The class size argument is a band-aid. It might solve some problems in some instances, but it is not going to fix the large problems that plague our schools.
