Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hyde Park District Curriculum
Hyde Park schools’ math curriculum prioritizes firm knowledge and understanding of core mathematics concepts over a tenuous grasp of a broad range of mathematics concepts. The curriculum introduces students to core mathematics concepts in the earliest grades. From there, students go on to further develop their understandings of those concepts and develop a wider set of problem-solving processes. They learn to work with algebraic equations, apply theorems in geometry and learn about statistics and mathematic models used for forecasting different matter.
Hyde Park schools’ English Language Arts curriculum values reading and writing, but does not seek to develop students’ abilities in those areas only. Rather, it requires that students who are able to read closely and attentive, and who are able to write about what they read, also develop important speaking, listening, and language skills. Research skills, learning to evaluate the quality of information, and being able to incorporate others ideas into one’s own writing is emphasized during high school.

Chalk Talk: Sliding Through Summer
You may or may not be familiar with the education phenomenon called “the summer slide.” It is well known among teachers and school administrators alike, but is rarely discussed outside of school environs. That’s a shame because it is something that parents need to know about. “The summer slide” describes what happens to a school year’s worth of learning when summer hits. It seems to start sliding out of children’s heads. Most of this learning is lost to disuse. Students, after a hard school year, decide to “take it easy” and unburden themselves from the weight of reading, math, and writing for a few months. Of course, every student needs a break, but students who follow the time-honored summer tradition of “all break, no practice” often find that they have fallen behind when the next school year starts. A few minutes of work each day is a small price to pay for being on track when the next school year begins.
