    Hi Everyone,

    I am hoping that you can explain what is meant by this "guideline for back to school night: Have appropriate curriculum available for all parents to view"

    I have always thought that in a grade level, there are different curricular or subjects to teach to the students. Does the phrase "appropriate curriculum" above mean the different subjects or textbooks used in the classroom? Your explanation is greatly thankful ahead of time.

    I have always placed out samples of student textbooks and workbooks, activities that were used in centers, hands on manipulatives used in class, etc. Students also put out work samples that they wanted their parents to look at.

    I put examples of our textbooks out, and samples of projects from previous years. For speech classes, I had a slide show playing of pictures of different speech activities we did throughout the year. For film, I had films made by students in previous year playing on computers to the side of the room, and some of our equipment out to use.

    I think you're overthinking his use of the word appropriate. I think he likely just means don't put out curriculum you don't teach (like if it's a history class, don't put out a math curriculum.

    I could be wrong...

    This is what I was thinking.
