Greer District and Curriculum
Greenville County Schools seek to create an environment where students are inspired to learn, understand and grow into citizens ready to enrich the community. Greenville County has implemented the Common Core State Standards to enlighten their students in Math and English Language Arts. These are rigorous standards that help students develop their critical insight into these subjects and use their critical thinking skills in other subjects.
We currently cover the following Greer-area school district: Greenville County Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Greer District Curriculum
In Language Arts, students must integrate higher level thinking skills as they apply reading and writing across the other content areas such as science and social studies. The skills they acquire in Language Arts will translate to the real world in terms of communication, media viewership and research skills. The expectations for acquiring research skills include being able to find and evaluate the quality of resources, recognize fact, opinion and authors’ intent, and to explain the meaning of the information found.
Math classes under the Common Core standards invite students to learn concepts at a greater depth than in the past. Students are challenged to dig deeper and truly master ideas before moving on to the next lesson. The subject is divided among the major topics of numeracy, algebra, geometry, statistics and probability, and contains standards from trigonometry and calculus and then the expectations detail the skills inherent within each that students must develop over the grade span.

Chalk Talk: Practicing Math Facts
An old proverb states that “repetition is the mother of all learning” which translates to the more modern saying “practice makes perfect.” In the case of children learning basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts, this is certainly true. In order to be able to solve problems using fractions, money, Algebra, and more, students must first have a foundation of their basic facts. Students who practice math facts for just ten minutes each day will have a leg up over those who don’t. Help your child out by using some of the time spent driving to school, cleaning up after dinner, or simply turn off the television at night to practice this important skill.
