Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lake City District Curriculum
Through the INTEL Essentials course taught by two of the district’s technology coaches, the teachers are developing their 21st century skills. Using their new skills in conjunction with the INTEL Essentials course curriculum, the teachers collaborate, analyze information, and problem-solve in order to design a project-based unit of instruction that is aligned with both the Common Core Standards and the NETS standards and includes multiple types of student assessment. This ensures that students are building their skills at pace with the curriculum.
The English Language Arts and Math curriculum have both been updated with the implementation of Common Core Standards. The design of each is similar in that it states the goals for each major topic in the subject, provides a progression of skills and concepts for students to master, and sets expectations for critical thinking abilities that students should be developing. The standards allow teachers to collaborate as well, to see where there are connecting points in what they are teaching, and designing interdisciplinary approaches.

Chalk Talk: Back to School: Keeping the Germs Out
With the beginning of the school year also comes an increase in colds, flus, and other illnesses. It is important for schools and teachers to encourage students--especially at the elementary level--to practice personal hygiene habits in order to prevent sicknesses. Teachers should always keep a box of tissues in their classroom; they may even add them to their classroom supply list, so they can get a box of tissues from each student. Students should always cover their mouths when sneezing or coughing. Very young students must be reminded to wash their hands after coughing or sneezing into their hands, after using the restroom, and before eating. Teachers can keep hand sanitizer in their classroom to encourage students to clean their hands more often, but they should have rules around the use of the hand sanitizer, as swallowing it can be very dangerous to children. Although attendance is vital, students who are highly contagious are better off staying at home until they can't spread the illness anymore.
