Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Atlantic District Curriculum

The Literacy curriculum contains objectives for reading literature, informational texts, and foundational texts and applying appropriate analytic skills to their comprehension of each. Students learn about how to identify key details and themes, how texts are structured, and how ideas relate to each other. They also learn to decode the meaning of new vocabulary and use formal English in their own writing and speaking. Writing skills emphasize persuasive, analytic, and critical writing.

Atlantic has placed great emphasis on its journalism program. The Atlantic High newspaper staff has created a very professional-looking, regularly updated website for its digital newspaper the AHS Needle. The website includes articles on school sports, activities, and fine arts; editorials; reviews; and video-based Eye of the Needle newscasts. It also contains tickers that show sports scores and the latest headlines, comment sections at the ends of articles, poll questions, and a link to submit a letter to the newspaper.

Chalk Talk: Fun With Language Through Books

Students often think of English and grammar as boring, so it is important that they learn all the fun nuances of language. The simply titled Language, written by Carol Greene, addresses such topics as what language is, how language began, how it changes, the abundance of languages that exist, how to make it work, how to have fun with it, etc. The book shows photographs that students can relate to that portray language—Coca-Cola bottles, billboards, chalkboards, traffic signs, storefront windows, an ice cream truck, and greeting cards. Woe Is I Jr.: The Younger Grammarphobe’s Guide to Better English in Plain English, written by Patricia T. O’Conner, teaches such grammar aspects as pronoun use, “I” versus “me” use, “they’re” versus “their” versus “there,” the rules of plurals, possessives, verb tenses, “affect” versus “effect” (and similar concepts), capitalization, punctuation, etc., in a fun, non-intimidating way and is chock-full of humorous cartoons.
