Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rio Rancho District Curriculum
The Rio Rancho Public Schools are instituting the new Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics that have been approved for use in public schools in New Mexico. In English & Language Arts students learn to read, write, speak and listen as they become fluent in the English language. To ensure that students are ready for the type of reading they may encounter in college or in the work force the coursework includes both instructional reading and literature. The skill of critical analysis is emphasized in both writing and in the demonstration of reading comprehension.
In Mathematics, Common Core Standards are focused in on a select number of math skills including computation, algebra, geometry, statistics and probability. The understanding is that if students are fully literate in the core topics within mathematics they can then apply this knowledge to master higher math, solving real world math-oriented problems, and use their knowledge in the workforce.
