Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Apex District Curriculum
The English curriculum prepares students for their success after high school, whether they will be entering college or the workforce. Gathering, understanding, and assessing information, using print and nonprint sources, and being able to communicate is essential for everyone. Reading, listening, writing, and speaking skills are important in math, science, art, and industrial trades as well, so providing a rigorous preparation for every student is the goal of WCPSS’s English/Language Arts department.
Beginning in Kindergarten and building through 12th grade, skills such as comparing and contrasting, comprehending differences in literal and figurative language, and integrating text evidence are emphasized. Writing is also a key component of the curriculum and students are taught a process for developing their writing that includes pre-writing, drafting, editing and revising, and publishing. They are expected to write in different styles, both formal and creative.

Chalk Talk: Successful Studying
Studying for a test should be more than just exercising your eyes! Engage your brain too by thinking about what you are reviewing. Ask yourself questions about what you are reading; try to create questions that will be similar to the ones your teacher likes to ask. For essay-type questions, think about 3-4 of the biggest ideas that your teacher has discussed, and list all the details you know for each of those topics. For fill-in-the-blank or multiple-choice types, teachers often use vocabulary definitions as the main part of the sentence, with the vocabulary words as the answer choices.
