Mansfield District and Curriculum
Common Core State Standards are at the heart of Ohio’s New Learning Standards which is the curriculum followed by the school districts in Mansfield, OH. Instead of having a very broad curriculum with a large number of objectives, the Ohio Learning Standards are more concentrated, with fewer objectives. These essential standards are expected to be covered in more depth. The process of learning, the actual content, and the products resulting from this more rigorous instruction are varied and more complex.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mansfield District Curriculum
The Common Core State Standards include Mathematics and English/Language Arts objectives currently. The State of Ohio is working to include Science and Social Studies standards. In Mathematics, the emphasis is not on the drilling of basic fact. The Standards focus more on the mathematical processes and include the operations as well. Processes which are emphasized include problem solving, mathematical reasoning, making educated guesses and testing them, communicating work process, and building mathematical models.
In English/Language Arts, non-fiction reading is more prominent within a variety of types of readings. Again, the process of thinking is key in the Common Core State Standards. Students are are expected to learn strategies to analyze, examine, and critique what they read to build a knowledge base. Students are expected to demonstrate understanding of the content standards through a variety of means including writings, multi-media presentations, and visual art.

Chalk Talk: What Are Conjunctions?
A conjunction is a word that is used to join parts of sentences together—a word that connects or conjoins parts of a sentence. Simple conjunctions are called coordinating conjunctions.
