    3rd Grade Responsibilities


    A 3rd grade teacher provides instruction in a variety of subjects including math, social studies, reading, and science. They must be sensitive to cultural, racial, socioeconomic, and religious differences among their students and understand how such diversity influences students’ learning. Teachers at this level also assign homework, create lesson plans, prepare exams, and evaluate students. Depending on the school, class sizes may be small or large requiring teachers to plan their curriculum accordingly. These teachers like most elementary school instructors, are primarily based out of one classroom and work with the same group of students daily. Teachers must also communicate well with the parents of their students, especially regarding any potential social or behavioral concerns they may have.
