Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Clarkstown District Curriculum
The Clarkstown Central School District’s curriculum is based on New York’s learning standards. Instruction in English Language Arts and math is guided by the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards. Instruction in other subject areas such as social studies and science is guided by the New York State Learning Standards. The standards that guide math education are based on foundational mathematics skills such as algebraic thinking, creating and collecting data, and numeration.
The standards that guide English Language Arts education in the Clarkstown Central School District put the reader first. Students learn that reading is a way to collect information, but they also learn that reading is a way to interact with the world around them. Students learn this from reading important works of fiction written by a wide range of authors and crossing cultural boundaries, and they also learn it by reading widely in non-fiction.

Chalk Talk: At, Above, Below
When it comes to grades, benchmarks, and progress it is easy to get bogged down in numbers. The is a number that will tell a person how a student’s skills in a specific subject compare to other students’ skills, compare to past students’ skills, or compare to where said student’s skills should be according to a complicated web of unique data. Undoubtedly, this approach has many useful applications. However, when education talk turns to numbers, living, breathing students often get overlooked. It is important to remember that students are more than numbers and past performances. A student’s reading or math skill levels change according to his or her mood and as a result of outside pressures. Let’s try to remember this when we sit down with students. Let’s try to figure out who they are before we assign them a bunch of numbers that will determine where they go in the future.
