Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cortlandt District Curriculum
Cortlandt’s Math curriculum focuses on a few central concepts that students begin mastering in the early grades and continue to refine and develop as they move up to the higher grades. Students learn to understand how math problems function. They learn important problem-solving skills. They develop the ability to think abstractly and communicate mathematics concepts clearly. This curriculum encourages students to take the skills that they develop out of the classroom and into the real world.
Cortlandt’s English Language Arts curriculum encourages students to read and research widely in order to get the best and most useful information from print and digital sources. Students are expected develop their reading, writing, speaking, listening and language skills from the earliest grades. Students are not encouraged to put these skill to use only in English Language Arts classrooms. Rather, they are expected to apply the skills to their studies in subject areas such as history, sciences, and technology.

Chalk Talk: Choosing Electives
Choosing the right elective can be a problem for some students. Imagine going from having one teacher and having all your classes determined for you to having a new teacher for every class and having to choose a class yourself. It’s a lot of pressure for a kid, especially a kid whose parents treat electives like career training. Electives should be pressure-free. They should be a chance for students to explore new and interesting areas without major consequences. The decision to take electives should be based mostly on academic and personal interests, but also some social reasons may cause a student to take a particular elective. Parents who encourage students to choose an elective that will put them on a path towards a career in music, fashion, or business mean well, but might be thinking too far ahead. Kids should be allowed explore any area that intrigues them, whether it will be useful in the future or not.
