Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Moreau District Curriculum
Instruction in Moreau’s English Language Arts classes is based on standards that require students to learn to read fiction and non-fiction genres. Students working within a curriculum guided by these standards are expected to use their ability to read closely, be able to decode and analyze meaning and to master other literacy skills such as critical thinking, researching, and communicating. Writing is a major portion of the curriculum, and gives students the opportunity to write both analytically and creatively. It is taught to include the skills of brainstorming, outlining, editing and revising before final presentation.
Instruction in math classes is based on standards that develop young students’ knowledge of core mathematics concepts like problem solving, numerical operations, relational thinking, and spatial reasoning. An emphasis is placed on data analysis skills, and students learn first about ratios and proportions as a way to introduce statistical concepts. Mental math and mathematical literacy are also key goals in the curriculum.

Chalk Talk: Active vs. Passive Entertainment
Many people in the education field talk about active and passive entertainment mediums. The idea that drives these discussions is that mediums such as books and games are active because they require the people using them to actively engage with the activity in which they are participating. A reader reads and thinks about what he or she has read. A person who plays games works to follow rules and accomplish goals. According to this argument, TV and film are passive mediums because they only require that participants sit back and watch. Of course, a person can sit back and mindlessly watch TV and films, but that is not the ideal way to interact with those mediums. Schools are willing to educate students who actively engage with the printed page. They teach students how to analyze and critique texts. They even teach students to write their own texts. Schools should also teach students to analyze, critique, and create visual media like TV shows and films.
