Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Darlington District Curriculum
On the Darlington County website, the math department posts detailed pacing and curriculum guides that outline what students are expected to learn throughout the year. The problem-solving skills which students develop during elementary school help them gain an understanding of proportional and geometric relationships in more complex problems. In high school, students must take full year courses in Algebra and Geometry and can study more advanced math including topics in statistics, trigonometry and pre-calculus.
In English language arts at Darlington County, students are expected to read widely; analyze, evaluate, and discuss texts; and develop a love for and personal meaning through reading. Through reading, students need to develop independence, build strong knowledge of the content they are reading, comprehend and critique, value textual evidence, use digital media effectively and strategically, and understand different perspectives and cultures.

Chalk Talk: Children’s Literature Spotlight: Alphabet Books
There are many books that can help young children learn, explore, and review the alphabet. In the wordless book “Alphabet City”, illustrated by Stephen T. Johnson, the letters are represented by city photographs. The book allows children to search for letters in the illustrations. “Annie, Bea, and Chi Ch Dolores: A School Day Alphabet”, written by Donna Maure, takes children through the alphabet using school activities and descriptions. Dr. Seuss didn’t miss out on the opportunity to write an alphabet book. “Dr. Seuss’s ABC”, with its fun language and matching pictures and words, features a predictable rhythm that can help children remember the alphabet. The book also provides occasional opportunities for children to practice the whole alphabet up to the letter that is next. Lastly, the very popular book “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom” introduces the alphabet through a charming story that includes fun language and rhyme.
