A Parents Guide to 21st Century Learning

ELA recommendations: Book

1. Encourage your student to read at home at least 15 minutes each day. Any kind of reading is beneficial.

2. Talk to your student about the new things they are learning at school and give them the opportunity to explain the details. Don't accept "Nothin'" as an answer.

3. Give your student home responsibilities that are important to the actual function of the home. Talk to them about choices to be, or not to be, responsible and what happens after the choice - CONSEQUENCES.

4. Give your student the opportunity to talk about world events. They have some amazing ideas for solving serious issues.

5. Give your student a chance to participate in discussions that lead to decisions on behalf of the family. Students need practice to weigh the pros and cons of real-world everyday decisions with the support of caring adults.

6. Give students monitored tasks that involve money and how it should be used to acquire things that they need and things they want.

These practices support the development of real-world skills and help students be prepared for the real work of adult life.

Please review the text and feel free to go to the Court Cases link above. These amendments have been controversial since they became a part of the Constitution in 1791.
