Missouri’s curriculum initiatives are enriched and enhanced by the Common Core, creating a diverse span of subjects for our students—from electives to core subjects.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Springfield District Curriculum
The Springfield Public School system anchors its grade-specific standards in a rigorous curriculum, with the forward-thinking goal of graduating literate and well-rounded students who will succeed in their college and workplace endeavors. In Language Arts, reading and writing are key components of early grade strands. Critical thinking and interdisciplinary application of text analysis are then built and expanded upon.
Mathematics curricula take math out of the classroom and into everyday situations. Regular practice with creative ways to employ math skills makes the mathematical subjects lively and engaging, while impressing upon students the importance of applying math. Grade school curriculum emphasizes whole numbers and spatial relationships, while middle and high school curricula diversify into geometry, algebra, calculus and statistics. Mathematical models of true-to-life scenarios bring quality hands-on experiences to district students, teaching students to apply math—and enjoy its applications.

Chalk Talk: Paleontology and Archaeology – Academic Cousins
Paleontology and archaeology are two subjects that are often mistaken for one another. Both subjects are sciences, both study ancient things, and both end up making those who study them get covered in dirt in some way, shape or form.
However, paleontology and archaeology are fundamentally different. Paleontology is the study of ancient life—from insects, to fish, to dinosaurs and woolly mammoths. Sometimes, human remains can be studied by paleontologists—or specialists called paleoanthropologists. Generally, ancient humans and their cultures are studied by archaeologists. The distinction can create situations when both work together—for example, at a mammoth dig site where human and mammoth remains are both found. Both types of dirt-diggers can write reports together and collaborate to tell these ancient stories. The tools they use also differ; paleontologists will dig through tougher sandstone rock, whereas archaeologists brush through soils or softer material, although there is overlap here as well. The next time you are asked just what these scientists study, you will have a concise answer—and perhaps clear up some confusion!
