Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Portland District Curriculum

Algebra, a part of the mathematics curriculum, is taught to the students at Sumner County Schools from the days the students learn how to count. As they progress through high school, they learn how to use problem situations, physical modes and technology to develop algebraic thinking. They also learn about algebraic notation and how to use this to solve other equations. Students become able to engage reasoning and how to make connections with other branches of mathematics.

American History is a part of the Social Studies curriculum at Sumner County Schools. Through this branch of study the students learn about civilizations in America from the Pre-Columbian times to the present. They explore events such as the Spanish-American War, WWI and WWII to discover the background and consequences of these events. They also learn about the Progressive movement and the New Deal from different perspectives to understand viewpoints from various outlooks.

Chalk Talk: Early Action

Early Action (EA) is a type of college application that has become pretty popular lately. The biggest difference between it and other application types is its due-date, which tends to be November 15th. This can be a challenging deadline for students to meet, but the benefits might outweigh the challenge. Another benefit is that Early Action applications are nonbinding, so students aren’t under any obligation to attend that college if accepted. This is especially useful if they receive a more competitive package from another college, for example. Due to its early deadline and the commitment this demonstrates, Early Action applicants are given a higher acceptance rate than Regular Decision applicants.
