Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Revere District Curriculum
At present, the standards for grades 9-12 are aligned with the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks, while students in grades K-8 are learning through the Common Core Standards. The district is highly committed to promoting 21st century learning and implementing technology, and Revere High School has recently instilled a technique called the “flipped learning” environment.
Instead of the teacher giving the lecture in class, students watch videos introducing the content at home as their homework assignments and answer guided questions—at their own pace. Then, in class, the teacher and students work on developing the skills that were explained in the videos; the teacher has time to work with individuals and groups of students who need help. Therefore, the sequence of a traditional lesson is “flipped.” Students receive iPads to watch the videos on. The setup of the class is more student-centered and interactive.

Chalk Talk: Lessening the Frustration of Fractions
At the end of third grade, a concept is introduced that puts fear into both teachers and students: fractions. It can be very difficult for teachers to teach and students to learn fractions. After students conquer what fractions are and how to identify them, they have to learn even more complex concepts, such as reducing fractions, changing improper fractions to mixed numbers, and performing operations with fractions. When introducing fractions, teachers should begin with an anticipatory set that engages students in the lesson. There are many children’s picture books on fractions that can be used for this purpose. Several of these books use food to show a connection as to how fractions are used in real life. When creating word problems involving fractions, it is a good idea to include food so that students can understand the concept.
