Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Alexandria District Curriculum
Campbell County School District teachers prepare themselves for the school year ahead by following the Kentucky Core Academic Standards, which develops its curriculum with the idea in mind that all students will have the opportunity to attend college if they want to. Students at the 5th-grade level engage in this country’s history by doing state projects where each student is assigned a state that they will prepare a research project for. This prepares the students for entering middle school, where researching material will be the norm.
In middle school, 8th graders work on projects that engage them in reading material, like group book report projects or individual papers. Other English curriculum might include having a topic relevant to literature assigned to students and having those students compile more complex research papers, drawing upon the approach they will have already learned.

Chalk Talk: Taking Good Notes
Starting in middle school, students can start taking notes during classes to refer back to when they’re studying at home for homework or for a test. Taking notes is a necessary step toward getting the most out of the material you’re learning, and engages you in what your teacher is saying. Studies have even shown that students who take notes not only retain more of the information they’re learning but also perform better on tests because they have something other than their textbook to refer to. To take notes that will benefit you, first start with a title describing what material you’re about to write down. For example, if you’re studying the Constitution, you would title this part of your notes “Notes on Constitution lecture” or be more specific if you can. While listening to your teacher, start writing down the most important points you think the teachers makes, or anything that you don’t understand and would like to refer back to later.
