Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Woodlawn District Curriculum
The middle school math curriculum in Woodlawn serves as a survey of critical math skills and concepts. Statistics and probability comprise a significant portion of the curriculum. Students learn how to use random sampling procedures in order to make inferences about a particular population. As part of this study, learners acquire an understanding of validity and reliability, as well as measures of central tendency and measures of variability.
High school students learn about the impacts of technology as part of the technology education curriculum. The role and purpose of technology in various fields, including math, science, social studies, and fine arts is explored. Students explore various advances in technology and examine the speed with which technology is advancing as well. Real-life applications of technology are studied, including how technology is used to monitor dangerous environmental situations, such as tsunamis and landslides. The trade-offs of technology are analyzed as well. Students identify the ways in which technology makes their lives more convenient, and compare that with the ways in which technology negatively impacts their life and the lives of those around them.

Chalk Talk: Benefits of STEM Programs
STEM – studies in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math – has become a popular option in many school districts. This is due in large part to the emergence of STEM-related careers over the last few years and a need to encourage young people to enter those careers. STEM classrooms integrate each subject with the other, providing rich learning experiences in which children learn how to apply critical skills in a variety of contexts. The learning environment in STEM classrooms is highly active, with hands-on activities for children to explore and apply their knowledge. This higher level of engagement means that kids enjoy their studies more, remember what they study better, and have access to a wealth of information on potential careers. Many schools also integrate the arts into their STEM curriculum. By adding the creative aspect of artistic endeavors with the empirical aspect of STEM, students learn how to incorporate a wide skillset in order to solve problems and achieve goals.
