Charleston District and Curriculum
Charleston County School District (CCSD) adapts the state’s Common Core Standards with the goal of preparing students for real-world challenges. Standards center on English Language Arts and Mathematics instruction. For English Language Arts, students rise up a “staircase” of increasingly challenging and complex texts to ready them for college or career, and build argumentative writing skills from the earliest grades.
We currently cover the following Charleston-area school district: Charleston County School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Charleston District Curriculum
English Language Arts texts are diverse and include myths, folk stories, Shakespeare, US documents, and American literature. Students are expected to gain insights and perspective through the experience of reading. From the earliest grades, students work to build skills in argument and in research writing, and special attention is given to the development of the ability to craft an analytic presentation. Students practice speaking and listening in a variety of settings and are expected to present complex ideas in speech.
Early Mathematics standards include the development of a robust understanding of whole numbers and their use in addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and decimals. Middle school mathematics instruction prepares students for algebra in grade 8. The high school mathematics curriculum standards are designed to prepare students for college, and special emphasis is placed on mathematical operations and modeling for practical applications.

Chalk Talk: Two Easy Ways to Build Reading Skills
Reading at home is linked to reading achievement at school. Not only is reading at home easy and fun, but it also aids comprehension and builds imagination. Here are two easy activities to share with your child.
1. Rhyming Fill-in-the-Blank (Preschool- 2nd Grade). Use books or poems that rhyme; nursery rhymes are wonderful for small children, and a Shel Silverstein book can be great fun with children who are a little older. Sit with your child and read aloud, making sure to read slowly and to make eye contact to show that you appreciate your child’s participation. As the child learns the story, pause at the end of rhymed lines to allow your child to fill in the blank, and cheer your child on as he or she completes the rhyme.
2. Reading While Cooking (1st-4th Grade). Many children love to help in the kitchen; they enjoy learning the rules of cooking, working with their hands, and admiring their finished product. The next time you cook with a recipe, invite your child to read the recipe to you. Cartons and containers also offer reading opportunities.
