Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Germantown District Curriculum
Germantown and Shelby County School District are focusing on ELA and Mathematics standards, according to the Common Core national standards, like many other school districts. These schools use technology in their quest to provide more rigorous lessons that enable more critical thinking and speaking skills. Their adaptation started with kindergarten, and has been working up to higher grades every year.
These schools are on track to have the Common Core standards adaptation fully implemented by the 2014-2015 schools. In doing so, they are improving their educational materials and strategies, using resources with higher complexity for language arts and mathematics, integrating social studies and science within their learning. Teachers are collaborating to find rigorous materials and informational texts to correspond to both Common Core and state standards. These transitions will help this school district continue to thrive as a top-rated district.
