High-Quality Curriculum: A Lesson in Collaboration
Beasley, Jennifer G.
Parenting for High Potential, v1 n8 p10-11 Jul 2012
The Curriculum Studies Network focuses on promoting and creating high-quality curriculum to meet the needs of academically advanced learners. Staff at Curriculum Studies Network are proud of the collaboration they promote among educators, but in order for high-quality curriculum to continue to be the standard in the field, they realize the valuable role parents play in the process as well. With the continued emphasis on standards-based curriculum, now in the form of Common Core State Standards, it is still important to recognize the need to meet the unique needs and interests of students. The connection between high-quality curriculum and the students' needs can be accomplished in collaboration with parents. One of the most powerful ways that parents can collaborate with the school in the area of curriculum is helping the school understand their child's unique needs and interests. In order for schools to truly differentiate to meet the "needs" of a child, they need to get to "know" the child. Parents and guardians who know their child best can help with this. Steps that parents can take to begin collaborating with the school are offered. (Contains 2 resources and 2 online resources.)
