Questions Parents Should Ask Teachers

  • What do the new academic standards mean for your class? 
  • What kinds of changes can I expect to see in the types of work my child will be doing? 
  • How have your lesson plans changed? 
  • Why are math lessons so different than when I was in school? 
  • Are other subjects, besides math and English, changing because of the standards? 
  • How can I help my child at home?
