New Ulm District and Curriculum
New Ulm Public Schools seeks to prepare each of its students for the 21st century world by engaging them in a rigorous K-12 curriculum. Students are expected to achieve their highest potential in all subjects and at all grade levels. Although expectations are high, they are not too lofty that children fail. Instead, New Ulm Public Schools has a strong system of support that includes parents, family members, and members of the community. The district’s approach is to educate the whole child. Students take part in academics, of course, but also have the chance to learn and grow socially, emotionally, and physically as part of New Ulm’s comprehensive curriculum.
We currently cover the following New Ulm-area school district: New Ulm Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New Ulm District Curriculum
The foundations of mathematics are laid in New Ulm’s elementary math curriculum. Students begin by understanding the relationship between quantities and whole numbers. Learners differentiate between a number that indicates quantity and a number that is part of a sequence as well. Whole numbers from zero to 31 are introduced, with students learning how to read, write, and represent each number with accuracy. Young math students learn how to count in sequence as well, forwards and backwards, from zero to 20.
The life sciences component of the high school science curriculum helps students acquire knowledge related to the structure and function of living systems. Learners explore cell processes and how they are influenced by both internal and external factors, such as temperature and ph. Students also examine individual organ systems in the human body, noting the duties of each and how the separate organs work together to maintain life. The basic elements of a cell are learned, with students developing an understanding that cells are mostly carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, phosphorus, and sulfur.

Chalk Talk: Importance of Active Learning
Active learning strategies have become extremely popular in public schools in an effort to make learning more engaging for students. Rather than sitting through a lecture, students taking part in active learning are deeply involved in the process. Art classes are excellent examples of active learning environments, because students take an active role in creating their artwork. Career-technical courses, such as welding or automotive, are also good examples of how students that are actively participating in a project are deeply engaged in their learning. Many active learning strategies include hands-on projects such as those discussed above, or they can include experiments that students in science undertake. Regardless of the nature of the work, active approaches to learning help kids retain information better and promote a better understanding of the material under study.
