Below are sites that can assist parents and students in understanding and preparing for the upcoming shift to Common Core Standards. These links outline what is Common Core, the rationale for a National Common Core Standard, the shifts in thinking these changes will require from educators, parents, and students, and the substantially different manner in which students will be assessed in 2014-15. The district team of Curriculum and Instruction, as well as a team of classroom teachers, has been meeting, reviewing the standards, and creating units to prepare SJUSD for this change. As well, the team of teachers have been piloting these units in preparation for next year’s rollout of Common Core. We are excited about the change to curriculum that fosters greater analysis and critical thinking to assist our students in preparing for their future in the 21st century.
This is the link from the state in regards to our ELA standards K-12 and as well as history and science ELA literacy.
Link with more information about assessment and what they could look like when implemented in 2014-15
John Muir has an after school book club. The book club meets once a week after school in Mrs. Bruan’s room. A parent volunteer, Denise Cole is doing all she can to gather books for the club but more books are needed to sustain the club and have twenty copies of each book for club members. Slightly used or new books will be happily accepted. Cash donations to purchase books are also accepted through John Muir’s main office. Please click on the Book Club Books link below to review the list of books for the club. Thank you in advance for your generous donations.
