Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hampden District Curriculum
The Common Core State Standards in Math call for high school students to be doing advanced work with numbers and quantitative information, be able to work with functions and models, and be proficient in algebra, geometry, and statistics and probability. Students learn how to interpret quantitative data and make rational decisions based on the information. They also learn how to make inferences and use probabilities to make decisions. They use models to link classroom math to everyday life and decision-making.
The Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts is organized around reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language. Students read and develop unique comprehension and analysis skills for literature, foundational texts, and non-fiction. In writing, students are expected to learn how to develop an idea, or thesis, and provide adequate support to prove their idea. They write for multiple purposes including analysis, self-reflection, or to express an opinion. Language study is applied to both read and writing, and students work on vocabulary development as well as grammar and conventions.

Chalk Talk: A Guide to the Most Commonly Misspelled Words
Spelling is a big part of school but an area many students struggle with. There is a large list of words that students (and many adults) spell incorrectly. First of all, it would be great if you didn't spell "grateful" as "greatful." How many H's does the word for how tall you are really have? The answer is two, as it is spelled "height" and not "heighth" (three). If you are taking a leisurely stroll, you may realize that "leisure" breaks that old "I before E...except after C" rule. Does "license" have a C or an S or both? You may be tempted to spell "medieval" with an I—think "MIddle Ages"—but an E belongs there instead. One more: Although a "memento" is something that helps you remember an important MOMENT in your life, the word is not spelled by simply slapping an O at the end of moment.
