Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Vinton District Curriculum
The district’s learning goals spell out that all students are expected to do the following: communicate effectively, become independent lifelong learners, be literature in technology, use leadership skills to work well and collaboratively with others, and be effective problem solvers. These goals are supported by the Iowa Core Curriculum and its emphasis on Literacy, Math, Science, Social Studies, and 21st Century Skills. The curriculum contains objectives for each of these subjects from kindergarten through 12th grade so that student learning has depth.
The Science curriculum originates with students' learning the basic concepts and principles for the disciplines of physical, life, and Earth and space science. Once students have grasped a firm understanding of these principles, they are expected to reflect upon the scientific knowledge they have acquired to recognize connections and relationships between science and technology. They will develop scientific reasoning and literacy skills that will enable them to advance to more complex work and also use their mathematical knowledge to inform their scientific reasoning.

- Interactive Displays Help Personalize Learning for Students - VSHS teacher Kelly Steffan used to have difficulty getting students interested in learning about the Cold War until she decided to have her students make interactive displays depicting a certain aspect of the Cold War, such as the Berlin Wall, the Space Race, and pop culture. Creating the display made the Cold War more real and personal to the students.
Chalk Talk: The More Serious Side of Children’s Books
Although children’s books are often known for being bright, colorful, and funny, it is also necessary for some books to teach children about serious life issues in a kid-friendly manner. The Baby-Sitters Club: The Truth about Stacey—a book in Ann M. Martin’s famous series—leads children to understand the seriousness of diabetes, which is becoming an even bigger issue with the epidemic of childhood obesity. It also shows that people who have diabetes—despite having a disability—can be normal, as Stacey tries to be. Al Capone Does My Shirts—written by Gennifer Choldenko—gives a background on autism and how disabilities were unfortunately handled many, many years ago, hopefully leading to children having more respect for people with disabilities.
