Homestead District and Curriculum
The goal of the curriculum of Miami-Dade County Public Schools is to enable broad skills that are essential to learning. The Common Core and Next Generation Sunshine State Standards provide the framework for literacy, mathematic problem-solving, and other core academic abilities.
We currently cover the following Homestead-area school district: Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Homestead District Curriculum
To achieve the curricular goals, elementary students can expect to read about their senses, animals, and opposites as well as classic literature like “The Secret Garden.” In middle school, students encounter many famous works by authors like Edgar Allan Poe and Mark Twain. In high school, students move on to more advanced and classic texts.
Once students have completed the elementary school math curriculum, they should be able to perform operations, tell time, measure length, use place value, understand fractions, calculate area and perimeter, convert units of measure, determine volume, and construct graphs. Middle school students are expected to understand ratios, solve algebraic equations, understand statistics, find surface area and volume, use exponents, and apply the Pythagorean Theorem. Upon graduation, high school students should be capable of using matrices, creating algebraic equations, applying trigonometry, and proving geometric theorems.

Chalk Talk: How to Develop Critical Thinking Skills
Being educated does not mean being able to repeat information that has been gained; it means being able to reason and think. Helping your student learn how to think will improve academic performance. Ask questions like, “Which flowers do you like better? What do you like about it?” Practice sorting objects in everyday situations like unloading the dish washer. When a decision must be made, discuss the possible choices, their advantages, and their disadvantages; then allow the student to make the decision. When new information is encountered, relate it to something else that the student has seen or heard. For example, “Remember when you studied oysters? These pearl earrings are made from the pearls that the oyster made.” Once your student is able to think critically, he or she will be able to learn independently and have better success in school.
