Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Peoria District Curriculum

The first tool they are using is called Thinking Maps and it is a program that helps students build connections. Brain research shows that students have an easier time learning new concepts if they can connect the new knowledge to prior knowledge. The Thinking Maps program helps students learn new material with a collection of graphic organizers that show them a visual representation of new concepts and old concepts.

The second curricular tool involves the best practices of Reading in the Content Area. Since reading is a life skill, the more practice that student get, the better reading skills they develop. Students are expected to develop the ability to make connections between ideas, devise predictions about what will happen next, and confirm or modify those predictions as they acquire more information. Children also learn how to summarize what they’ve read by explaining the relationships between events or ideas presented in the text. With Reading in the Content Area, students learn about the skills to decode the context of complicated texts and they build more background knowledge as they read more.

Chalk Talk: Improving Student Achievement

As state and local governments look for ways to improve student achievement, they often overlook the one factor that makes the biggest difference: parent involvement. The most reliable way to consistently improve student achievement is to have parents involved in their children's education. This does not mean that the parents need to continually hover and call teachers, but it means that parents have continuous conversation with their children about school. The biggest problem with student achievement is in the secondary school years as parents begin to pull away from their children's education. All the way through 12th grade, parents need to attend conferences, make sure their children attend school regularly, and teach them skills that they do not learn at school.
