Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sterling District Curriculum

The curriculum students are receiving an education comparable to that received anywhere else, so that students will be competitive after graduation, whether they pursue post-secondary education or enter the work force. In humanities classes, students read complex nonfiction texts for comprehension and synthesis, and collect, organize, analyze, and utilize information to support written theses. Students are taught to be effective communicators who observe attentively, speak effectively, and write clearly and expressively.

In mathematics and science classes, students are taught to use critical and analytical thinking to solve problems and evaluate and refine strategies for solving problems. The hope is that students will have opportunities to transfer their knowledge to real-world experiences. Students are expected to use resources, technology, and time effectively and efficiently.

The district believes in providing a rigorous, supportive education to all students, regardless of academic strengths or weaknesses or differences in learning styles.

Chalk Talk: Why Cramming Doesn’t Work

Cramming before a test is an age-old approach to studying, but research has shown that it doesn’t work as well as consistent studying over a longer period of time. It takes time and repetition to add things to the human memory. Studying over the course of weeks is the only way to accomplish this. Cramming before a test means the student might remember a few things, but only a few, so relying on it as a sole means of study is dangerous. Also, students tend to sacrifice sleep when they cram in favor of pulling an all-nighter. This can hurt the student’s success more than help. Time and again, studies have shown that a good night’s sleep before a test benefits the student much more. It’s much easier to make mistakes when you’re tired. Also, taking time to eat a good breakfast helps immeasurably as well. Going over material again, after you’ve learned it, before a test is fine, but be sure you aren’t hurting your cahnces more than helping.
