Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Monroe District Curriculum
The district is implementing the Common Core Curriculum which has been approved for use in all public schools in the state of Louisiana. Common Core provides clear expectations for students and parents in terms of what children should know in terms of English and Language Arts and Mathematics. In English and Language Arts students focus on learning how to read, write, listen and speak using correct English. Reading material increases in complexity with each grade and includes both literature and informational text of the type a student may encounter on the job.
In Mathematics, students concentrate on core math subjects such as basic arithmetic, algebra, geometry, statistics, measurement and proportional reasoning. A coherent and progressive approach is provided in the development of math skills with students building on those skills year by year. The goal is for students to be able to apply their math skills with confidence to math problems in the workforce and to higher math.
