Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grand Island District Curriculum

Grand Island schools base instruction in English Language Arts on a curriculum that requires students to develop the ability to read with increasing independence. Students begin with stories and general non-fiction and then progress to reading classic and popular literature from around the world. They are expected to learn how to derive meaning from different texts and to explain their interpretations in discussion or writing. Presentation and speaking skills are also a part of the Language Arts curriculum so that students are using the vocabulary and language skills they have developed through reading and writing.

The schools base instruction in math on a standards which cover the topics of numeracy and operational sense, pattern recognition as the basis for later algebra, understanding techniques for measuring different objects and developing shape and spatial awareness. Starting in late elementary school, students are introduced to topics in ratios, developing their ability to work with probabilities and other means of statistical analysis.

Chalk Talk: Computer Literacy

There is a belief among many that technological knowledge is intrinsic to today’s children. Such people will remark upon a child’s ability to swipe a finger across a screen and imply that it is the sign of a vast understanding of chips, processors, and coding. Not only is this simply not true, but it is also harmful to children. People who believe that children are already technologically proficient do not see the benefit of schools focusing on technological literacy. But such a focus is more important than ever. Among other things, today’s children need to know how to type, how to load information onto computers, and how to critique the information that they find on computers. There is also an increasing movement to have programming and coding as subjects taught in the schools. Children need to be literate in all aspects of technology, not just screen swiping.
