Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dudley District Curriculum
Shepherd Hill Regional High School has imposed school-wide 21st century learning expectations that all students are expected to meet. These include having the ability to express themselves in writing, reading and comprehending texts, speaking and listening effectively, using critical thinking skills, demonstrating cultural literacy, and being innovative and using problem solving. Each of these individual expectations has a rubric that determines students’ skill level in each criterion based on whether they exceeded, met, were working toward, or were below expectations.
The criteria for writing includes writing for different purposes and audiences, writing about relevant content, presenting ideas in an organized fashion, and using proper grammar and mechanics. When reading, students must be able to decode unfamiliar words, read fluently, comprehend what they are reading, and make inferences. Thinking critically involves collecting and organizing accurate information, understanding concepts and procedures, analyzing information, and making conclusions that are supported by evidence.

Chalk Talk: What’s In a Syllabus
Syllabi are often associated with higher education, but teachers at any level can design a syllabus to inform students and parents of what to expect throughout the year. The syllabus should start off by including the school phone number and teacher's professional e-mail address. Teachers should list the course objectives and perhaps the behavioral academic expectations of students. A rough course calendar should be provided that gives students and parents an idea of the content and topics that will be taught and learned for each week throughout the year (going day-by-day would be too time consuming). It is important to place an asterisk that this calendar can be revised at any time. Although students likely will not have to purchase any textbooks, it is a good idea to provide a list of items that students need to have each day to be prepared for class. Information about grading, including expectations for class participation, would be prudent.
