Asheboro District and Curriculum
Asheboro City Schools and the Randolph County School System have adopted and put into use the Common Core State Standards and the NC Standard Course of Study. Students in these school systems will receive the benefit of curriculum that has been designed to provide relevant and rigorous standards at every grade level. Upon graduation, each young adult will be prepared for success as a lifelong learner, whether they will be continuing their education or joining the workforce.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Asheboro District Curriculum
The focus on Common Core Standards require that teachers and students work on literacy and mathematic principles as a central focus. Both subject areas are taught in such a way as to support learning in all subjects. For instance, in English Language Arts there is an emphasis on informational texts so that students are able to do the reading required in their history or science courses. Critical thinking and analytic skills are also taught insofar as how they emerge from the problem-solving and communication that students must do daily.
Math and science curricula are designed to initiate and enhance problem-solving skills for all students, through inquiry-based learning and effective research principles. Hands-on activities and real-life applications are emphasized, and creative approaches for finding answers are rewarded. Technology is implemented in the core curriculum, to better prepare students for life in the 21st century.

Chalk Talk: There’s a Difference Between Studying and Reviewing
Does it really make sense to try to cram two- or three-weeks’-worth of learning into a single evening of studying? It’s the same concept as playing sports: you don’t practice only on the day before the big game. Research shows that reviewing new material within 24 hours of first hearing it increases your retention of it by 60%. So, every evening, spend about 10 minutes per class to go over what you learned during that school day—for an 8-period day, that would mean less than 1.5 hours to go over everything. Then, when it’s test time, all you need to do is review what you’ve already learned on the night before the test. With this method, you’ll commit the information and concepts to your long-term memory, which is much more beneficial than the short-term memory that “cramming” builds.
