Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dubuque District Curriculum
Elementary school learners receive a solid foundation in core subjects such as Math, Science and Language Arts. Math instruction in K-5 includes arithmetic, counting, algebraic thinking, basic geometry and measurement and data. Topics covered in Science include designing simple experiments involving life science and physical science. Literacy goals for the early years include phonics, word awareness and general fluency in reading and speaking. Later in elementary school, students are expected to read and understand more complex texts, as well as making inferences form context.
In Dubuque middle schools, students continue on to learn beginning statistics and algebra in their Math classes. In Science, they conduct more sophisticated experiments and use critical thinking skills to explain the differences between predictions and outcomes. Language arts classes teach students to think more abstractly and globally about texts, drawing and compiling evidence from multiple sources to reach a thesis.

Chalk Talk: Preparing for the SAT
Students and parents of college-bound students should know about the Scholastic Aptitude Test, or SAT. It's a globally recognized test used by colleges to determine how much students have learned and how they well they can apply what they've learned. The College Board says that the best way to prepare for the test is gradually over time, by taking challenging courses, studying hard and reading and writing outside of class. Although short-term cramming probably won't increase scores a whole lot, it's always a good idea to become familiar with the format by taking practice tests. The College Board site offers free practice tools such as practice tests, sample questions and Words of the Day. Check your local library for SAT prep books. Hiring a SAT tutor might also prove helpful, especially if you start sessions well before you sit for the test.
