Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Omaha District Curriculum
In Mathematics, Omaha schools follow a strict progression of skills, beginning in the early grades. The number sense objective is where it all begins, with the teaching of students to be able to demonstrate knowledge of numbers. Students will acquire a variety of ways to solve problems, make real-world and cross-curricular connections to mathematical practices, and be familiar with operational concepts.
In Reading, in the early stages, students start with recognizing print, such as the letters and words with one-to-one correspondence, knowledge of the specific sounds in words (phonemic awareness), and from there, students develop analytic skills as they begin to read across genres and subjects. Writing is also a central part of the Language Arts goals, and students are taught different ways to produce written work for purposes such as persuasion or reflection. Research skills are also covered, giving students the opportunity to learn ways to evaluate the quality of information. view all Omaha tutors

Chalk Talk: How Cross-Curricular Learning Is Used
When teachers teach specific subjects, it is very important that, in addition to teaching the specific concepts of that learning strand, the teachers apply it to all of the subjects. For example, in Dcience, the concepts can be intertwined with Mathematics, Reading, and even History. Teaching cross-curricular topics emphasizes all subjects, and reinforces the learning that may have already taken place in other subjects.
