Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mamakating District Curriculum
Each district within Mamakating follows New York State Education Department (NYSED) requirements. The NYSED has recently adopted and implemented the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), a federal initiative designed to streamline core academic subjects. Currently, the CCSS focuses on changes made within the English language arts and mathematics curricula. The districts provide developmentally appropriate instruction to children in elementary, middle, and high school.
Every district offers young students lessons in English language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, character building, physical education, music, and art. As students progress through their academic careers, core courses become more rigorous and elective choices become more abundant. The high school curriculum for each district provides secondary students the opportunity to plan for college and/or career. All schools meet the New York State Education Department high school graduation requirements.

Chalk Talk: The Value of Project-Based Learning
Project-Based Learning (PBL) is a type of instructional method that uses long-term learning goals and multi-faceted assessments to provide students with knowledge. Many educators and psychologists agree that PBL can offer students with a deeper understanding of a subject, while providing real-world experiences and critical thinking skills. Teachers provide students with objectives and classroom activities, while students create most of their learning through exploration, monitoring, and group discussions. Examples of PBL could include creating a news broadcast (as opposed to reading about one and filling out a worksheet), working as a medical team to diagnose a patient, or building a model to demonstrate potential and kinetic energies. For PBL to work, teachers need to provide students with real-world connections, class activities that address clear learning objectives, opportunities for student interaction, and promote student-led discoveries. With more project-based assignments, students may be better prepared for post-secondary life.
