Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Burley District Curriculum
In English language arts classes, students are challenged with different types of texts. They read classic literature but also study and analyze non-fiction texts so that they will be prepared to read, analyze, and write about all types of texts at a higher level when they graduate from high school. Students are required to dig into and evaluate these different kinds of texts as well as different non-fiction formats, such as hard copy reference books and digital resources.
Students are taught to gather evidence, evaluate it, and use it to back up written and oral presentations they make in class. The goal is that students will be better prepared to support their arguments and decisions with evidence, not just opinion. Students are also expected to develop vocabulary and English grammar skills so that they can communicate effectively to a wide audience.

Chalk Talk: College vs. University
What’s the difference? Basically, the main difference is how each is organized. A university is organized into departments called schools or colleges, usually by a similar set of majors. So there might be a School of Business or a College of Humanities. Each of these departments has some autonomy but operate under the umbrella of the college, itself. They tend to be housed within separate buildings. Often, they are organized this way because of size. Colleges, on the other hand, tend to be smaller and tend to be organized more loosely. There are still departments, such as English and Math, but they are often more general and lack the autonomy of a university. Public schools are also often universities, though there are plenty of private ones, and there are also plenty of small, public universities as well.
