Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glenwood District Curriculum
Glenwood Community School District’s Curriculum Coordinating Council (CCC) is a group of personnel that is in charge of all matters related to curriculum and student learning. The council is comprised of two primary school teachers, two intermediate-level teachers, two middle school teachers, two high school teachers, two educators outside of the core classroom, four parents or community members, five administrators, the superintendent, the curriculum coordinator, and one school board member.
The teachers and community or parent members must apply for membership on the council. Additionally, each Subject Area Committee (SAC) is responsible for developing a results-based curriculum for its particular content area based on an action plan devised by the CCC. This collaboration ensures that the learning goals are educationally sound, connected to real world applications, and are reasonable at each age level. It also allows educators to explore emerging topics such as robotics or STEM learning.

Chalk Talk: Children’s Literature
Predictable books are beneficial to use with early readers, as they contain predictable, repeated words or phrases that students can learn and recognize . Oftentimes, these repeated phrases are used at the beginning and/or end of each page or section. Kevin Henkes’s Kitten’s First Full Moon includes such predictable phrases as “Poor Kitten!” and “Still, there was the little bowl of milk, just waiting.” The book allows children to see the bright side even when they are having a bad day. Henkes is known for his illustrations, and this book is no different, as it is a Caldecott Medal winner. Many children also like unpredictable books that give them an adventure to follow and imagine. One such classic is Where the Wild Things Are, in which Max gets in trouble with his mother, sets off to an adventure through a dazzling world of Wild Things. After experiencing this strange, new world, Max is happy to find himself safe at home.
