What does it feel like to have a disability? The Margaret Mead Elementary School PTSA wanted students to be able to empathize with their peers who face mobility, learning or other challenges. As part of Disability Awareness Month, they set up a Disability Awareness Fair with eight learning stations.
Instruction and curriculum seeks to refocus and redefine the skills and learnings that students must master to be successful and productive citizens in an ever-changing world that shall require higher level skills.
The district seeks to develop curriculum that integrates basic and lifelong learning skills into all curriculum areas. The resulting curriculum shall identify what all students need to learn as well as how much instructional time should be devoted to each content area. A goal shall be to integrate content areas so students see the inter-relationships between subjects rather than viewing them in isolation.
Each student should be presented with a core curriculum, a common set of learnings, as well as have an opportunity for an individualized curriculum based on advanced learnings in the content areas or new learnings in individualized content areas such as foreign language or vocational education.
