Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Merriam District Curriculum
Instruction in Merriam’s English Language Arts classes is based on standards that require students develop literacy skills related to vocabulary, comprehension, and phonemic awareness. For example, students read and analyze various stories and their qualities, then complete persuasive writings on that topic as well as on social norms and values. The standards also require students to work on developing these skills as individuals and as group members.
Instruction in Merriam’s math classes is based on internationally benchmarked standards that require students to be capable of using patterns and structures to solve math problems, thinking abstractly and concretely, and communicating fundamental mathematics concepts clearly. The standards also encourage students to see how the topics they learn about in math are related to other areas like engineering, internet technology, and design principles.

Chalk Talk: Reading, Writing, and Paying Bills
Schools have shown themselves to be very adept at teaching student the fundamental reading, writing, and math skills that they will need to get through life. However, there is a lot more to life than reading, writing, and math. Schools should consider developing Life Skills classes and programs that will teach students to manage money, how to parent effectively, and how to be prepared for and perform the basics day-to-day tasks that take up much of everyday life. By teaching students financial literacy, they will be far better prepared to take on financial responsibility as a young adult. They can understand interest rates, what it means to get a loan and how it will impact their budget, and other considerations which they will use regularly. Having such classes and programs will prepare students to become responsible citizens that are truly prepared for life after high school.
