Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Osceola District Curriculum
The core curriculum is based on Common Core Standards and lay out a series of learning objectives within each subject that students are expected to meet. These objectives are written broadly so that teachers may develop lessons according to the learning styles of the students in their class. Each subject is broken down into its most important topics, like in Math, students study numerical operations, algebra, geometry, data analysis and may advance towards more complex areas in high school.
The district places great emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The district’s middle school is a STEM academy, while Osceola High School offers courses in STEM. STEM Academy takes a project-based approach to learning, and students have access to such technologies as robotics and hundreds of free e-books. In addition to students learning the basic content areas, they have labs in math, literacy, and science, keyboarding, computer technology, and specialized STEM programs.

Chalk Talk: Listening: A Skill Taken for Granted
In traditional classrooms, students spend the majority of the day listening while their teachers teach content, ask questions, explain assignments, etc. However, even if all eyeballs are on the teacher, that does not necessarily mean that every child is truly listening and retaining the information. Listening does not come easily to every student, and teachers should model good listening skills in their instruction. For example, they should never interrupt students or give inadequate wait time. Teachers should stress that not only do students need to listen to them but also to their peers. They also need to be polite to their classmates, not interrupting them or arguing with them and carefully considering their points-of-view. Schools often spend a great deal of time teaching speaking skills, but listening is just as, if not more, important, so it should not be forgotten.
