Graves teachers collaborate on icy day

Graves County School District teachers took advantage of a recent day when school was cancelled for students, due to icy patches on roadways. Teachers met in small groups to communicate, collaborate, and coordinate concerning Common Core Standards for American education. Here, third grade teachers JoAnna Mounger (left) of Cuba Elementary School and Becki Stratton of Farmington Elementary compare notes. “Teachers, parents and community leaders have all weighed in to help create the Common Core State Standards,” according to www.corestandards.org. “The standards clearly communicate what is expected of students at each grade level. This will allow our teachers to be better equipped to know exactly what they need to help students learn and establish individualized benchmarks for them. The Common Core State Standards focus on core conceptual understandings and procedures starting in the early grades, thus enabling teachers to take the time needed to teach core concepts and procedures well—and to give students the opportunity to master them. With students, parents and teachers all on the same page and working together for shared goals, we can ensure that students make progress each year and graduate from school prepared to succeed in college and in a modern workforce.”
