Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Moline District Curriculum
The Common Core places emphasis on Math and Language Arts because of how each subject supports learning in all other areas. Literacy is started through the reading of stories and helping children develop comprehension and language skills. Throughout the curriculum, the development of vocabulary skills is focused on so that students can determine meaning through context. Writing is taught as a process that begins with brainstorming and follows through with editing and revising until presenting a final paper.
The Math curriculum starts with the basics of numeracy but also introduces students to grade appropriate concepts in topics such as probability, algebra and patterning, or geometry. By high school, these all become full year courses and students go deep in the topics of algebra and geometry and can go further with trigonometry or calculus. The ability to communicate math thought and use mathematical reasoning are both goals of the curriculum.

Chalk Talk: Thank-You Notes in the College Process
Thank-You Notes might seem like an archaic idea, but they can be of great benefit to a senior in the application process. Thank-You Notes are short notes, wither hand-written and mailed, or, in some instances, sent as emails. On the surface, they seem like an unnecessary formality, but they can also serve additional purposes. After meeting with a college representative at a school or fair, many students neglect to send a thank-you, but this can be a great way to follow up with the representative and also further the relationship, as well as asking any additional questions the student might have. After touring or interviewing at a college, thank-you notes serve the same useful purpose. Emily Post might say that Thank-You Notes should always be hard copies, but an email will suffice, especially for a harried college admissions representative. And lastly, don’t forget to send a note to thank your recommender who took the time to write that recommendation that might’ve helped you get into college!
