Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Knoxville District Curriculum
Tennessee, like many states, has adopted the Common Core State Standards. The Department of Education in Tennessee is committed to providing resources and training to its teachers, to stay current with the transition to Common Core, and to continue to provide an excellent education based on student needs. Knox County’s Academic Standards include academic vocabulary, arts, foreign language, computer technology, mathematics, reading, and career guidance.
One of the ways that Knox County schools meet the academic standards is by providing learning opportunities through service learning. In service learning, students learn by experience within the community. They not only develop critical thinking skills relevant to the needs of the community, but they learn about ethical and social aspects of decisions in this context. Students reinforce their knowledge and application of good character traits, such as respect, responsibility, and citizenship through these experiences, while connecting to their community. view all knoxville tutors

Keeping Informed: Recent Knoxville Educational News
- Common Core Implementation - Full transition to the Common Core standards in all Knox County schools in Math and Language Arts will provide a more rigorous and nationally consistent education for students. It will involve more critical thinking while providing a standard of education that will lead to more successful futures for students and communities. The superintendent also announced that those who are not able to attend graduations in person will have the opportunity to watch them on a web-based site.
- Visit By the C-SPAN Bus - Students learn about opportunities, programs, and resources provided by C-SPAN. Students were invited to create videos which focus on important issues the government should address. Events such as these not only provide a creative outlet for students to voice their opinions about government, but it gets them involved and reinforces to students that they can make a difference with their voices. Civic engagement is essential for young people to better understand their local communities and their place in the bigger picture.
- Principal for a Day - The “Principal for a Day” program, presented by Knox County Schools, brought in a leading education company to include close to 100 business, government, and community leaders to experience the daily challenges in public education. Support for education is most likely and most meaningful when other sectors of the community get involved and “walk the walk” of teachers and administrators. This allows for more valuable discussions, decisions, and insights that will enhance resources and programs that will lead to common goals and better education for students.

Chalk Talk: Making Learning Fun
Let’s face it: if it’s not fun, kids don’t want to do it! One way to get your child to practice skills while having fun is to play your own version of “Stump Your Parents.” The only materials you need for this are pencils, white copy paper (or use colored paper, with a different color for each subject) and any game board you have at home. You can even make one with your child on poster board. Ask your child what he or she is learning in school in a particular subject. Cut or tear the paper into ¼ sheets to make “game flashcards” for your “Stump Your Parents” game. Label one side of the ¼ sheets Q for question, and label the other side A for answer. Now you and your child can write related questions (that practice the skills) and answers on the cards. This will not only help your child in the skills they need for the topic (math, science, social studies), but it will improve his or her writing and penmanship!
