Abbeville District and Curriculum
Abbeville County School District serves roughly 3,700 students in eight schools and uses the State Common Core Standards. The standards set out objectives that students should meet each year in order to be proficient in the subject and prepared for the next year. The objectives also call for students to critically think about what they are learning by analyzing texts, performing mathematical reasoning, and working through the scientific process. Students are encouraged to develop their interests and have options in high school to focus their education on a career or college-bound pathway.
We currently cover the following Abbeville-area school district: Abbeville County School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Abbeville District Curriculum
The standards in Math and Language Arts have increased in rigor and depth. They are taught with attention to how these subjects are used in other areas – for instance, how math supports student understanding of scientific and engineering concepts. In Language Arts, there is an increased use of non-fiction so that students learn how to analyze and interpret traditional literary works but can also determine meaning or bias in non-fiction texts. Writing is also taught so that students have many ways to present their ideas.
The district utilizes curricular resources such as Thinking Maps, online tools that promote critical thinking; Project Lead the Way, which focuses on STEM programs and education; Khan Academy, a program centered on students working at their own pace; and Smarter Balanced Assessments, which align to the Common Core Standards. The district also offers work-based courses and opportunities in culinary arts, automotive technology, carpentry, cosmetology, health science, and Project Leas the Way (STEM) through the Abbeville County Career Center.

Chalk Talk: Children’s Literature Spotlight: Character Education for Young Children
In “For Pete’s Sake,”—written and illustrated by Ellen Stoll Walsh—the alligator becomes upset when he keeps noticing differences between the flamingos and himself. By the end of the book, he learns that, even though he looks different than the flamingos, he can still have fun with them. In “No, David!”—written and illustrated by David Shannon—David is frustrated because his mother always gives him orders and tells him that he cannot do what he wants to do. However, at the end of the book, despite this, he realizes that his mother still loves him. Dr. Seuss’s “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” is an inspiring book that discusses that people can succeed despite difficulties along the way, as it talks of all the places people can go and things they can do. Finally, “What’s So Bad About Being an Only Child?”—written by Cari Best—is a great book for an only child, as the main character learns that being an only child does not mean that she has to be lonely (i.e.: by spending time with her pets).
