Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Tulsa District Curriculum
In Language Arts, the students learn about writing through the writing process. The students have many opportunities for exploration with their writing, but they also learn how to add structure to a given topic. The students are taught prewriting skills, such as the use of a graphic organizer or thinking map, and from that point they begin the writing stage at the rough draft. The teacher’s guide the students in the writing process to the point of publishing the final draft.
In the teaching of Math, students are expected to develop a wide range of practical and conceptual knowledge.For instance, standards include the teaching of identifying, differentiating between, and counting money. The pupils are able to manipulate a variety of coins themselves, and to learn the value of each, and also how to interchange the values of the coins for equal amounts. The teachers also instruct the students how to analyze quantitative values depending on the grade level.

Chalk Talk: What Is a Magnet School?
Magnet Schools are federally funded schools that specialize in certain subject areas. The term “magnet” refers to the fact that the school draws the students towards the interests and curriculum that is provided. Magnet schools are part of the public school system. There are magnet schools for fine arts, science, mathematics, technology, and much more specialized subject areas. If a student wishes to attend a magnet school, they must apply and meet admissions standards, and some magnet schools have a lottery to see which students can attend. Also, a certain percentage of students from each section or district are able to attend. The magnet schools, even though they focus on a specific area of interest, also instruct students according to the core curriculum of the state.
