The teachers in Homewood City Schools have given much time and effort to concisely communicate learning expectations for the students of Homewood. Our teachers have combined forces to define what the students of Homewood should know and be able to do at each grade level. Much research supports the importance of being clear to students and their parents regarding exactly what is to be learned. Of course, Alabama has a state course of study which defines these learning goals at each grade level. By creating learning targets specific to Homewood, our teachers have added rigor and clarity to the existing course of study. Learning targets ensure consistent expectations in teaching and learning.
This information is also available on our website at www.homewood.k12.al.us. Please note that “I Can” statements are under each learning target. These statements are student friendly explanations of everything that a student has to know and be able to do in order to master each learning target.
We sincerely thank you for being our partner in your child’s education. We hope that this guide is one of many tools that will be helpful in ensuring your student’s success in the classroom.
