Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mound District Curriculum
The economics strand of the middle school social studies curriculum introduces students to the fundamental concepts of microeconomics. Learners explore the concepts of supply and demand, and note how buyers and sellers interact to determine fair market value of products and services. Scarcity is examined as well, with students identifying how items are rationed or distributed when demand outstrips supply. The risks of entrepreneurship are identified, as well as the rewards, with students identifying how entrepreneurs can maximize the likelihood that their business venture ends in success.
High school arts students in Mound explore the artistic foundations of music and theatre. In music, students demonstrate their mastery of technical skills by reading and notating music. In doing so, students show their understanding of complex metering, expressive symbols, and extended ranges. Vocal and instrumental students likewise develop the ability to perform musical numbers in solo and ensemble performances.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Class Size
Recent educational research has shown that the size of a class has a significant impact on the level of achievement of students. Larger class sizes are correlated with reduced academic success and an increase in behavioral issues. Conversely, classes with fewer students are associated with improved class grades and test results, and a reduction in discipline referrals. Smaller classes also help students feel a sense of community and support in their learning process. The benefits that students derive from smaller class sizes last for years. In fact, elementary students display higher achievement throughout middle school and high school if they were in a small class during their elementary years. These benefits are seen in both boys and girls, and among students of all ability levels, with minority students and poverty-stricken students seeing the most gains.
