The DeKalb County School District’s new curriculum breaks the school year down in two-week intervals.
Students are put through a lesson, broken down by instructional days, followed by work assignments on the lesson and days at the back end to assess and critique the learning process. Teachers, when planning the next two weeks, go over what they learned in the previous process, including what didn’t work and what would help the next interval.
Officials say while it’s too early to call the curriculum a success, they see a change in student interaction and teacher participation.
