Fern Bacon Middle School hosted its second of three Academic Parent Teacher Team (APTT) meetings last week.

English teachers Jessica Ghalambor and Lysette Lemay and math teachers Myra Licon and Tatiana Sanchez presented lessons to parents based on the Common Core State Standards. Each parent was given tools to use to practice with their child at home.

The Common Core State Standards, adopted in California in 2010, detail what students should know and be able to do at every grade level. Standards-based teaching challenges students to think more deeply, analyze information and work with others in teams.
