Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Concord District Curriculum
Concord produces curriculum maps that contain the following: course descriptions (a brief overview of the content area in each grade level), essential questions that focus on underlying concepts, the content (the actual subject matter that is learned), skills that students need to have to gain proficiency, assessments, instructional resources, and the relevant standards. Parents can easily browse and search for course descriptions by school type (elementary, middle, or high school), school, grade level, subject, and course title.
The curriculum introduces increased rigor in all subjects over a student’s school years. For instance, when writing, students can not solely rely on prior knowledge or experiences and need to be able to draw out textual evidence to support their responses. For the secondary grades, the English classes use more nonfiction selections, while social studies and science classes cultivate students’ ability to build knowledge and evaluate or analyze information from the texts read in those subjects.

Chalk Talk: What Do Second Graders Learn in ELA?
According to the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts, second graders will now be able to ask and answer questions about key details in a text—specifically answering questions with who, what, where, when, why, and how to demonstrate understanding. They will not only be able to describe characters and major events in stories but also how these characters reacted to the events. Craft and structure will become more complex, with second graders describing how words and phrases (i.e.: alliteration, rhymes, repeated lines, etc.) provide rhythm and meaning. They will have a better understanding of the beginning—how it introduces—and conclusion—how it closes the action---of a story. Not only will they be able to identify who the narrator of a story is, but they will recognize different points-of-view of characters. By the end of the school year, they will be able to read and comprehend grade-appropriate stories and poetry. In informational texts, students will explain how graphics such as charts and diagrams contribute to the text and its meaning.
