Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Duxbury District Curriculum
The curriculum team has created a Curriculum Review Cycle schedule that maps out when each subject area curriculum will be reviewed up until the year 2020. Each content area is reviewed every five years and enhanced based on its and the students performance achieving the goals. The Science and Technology objectives are also regularly expanded upon so that they are current and relevant.
The year after the curriculum is reviewed, a new one is developed. The year after that, the new revised curriculum is implemented, with the next year being dedicated to the first phase of evaluation of that curriculum. Lastly, the final year of the cycle is the second phase of the evaluation, which involves analysis and planning for the future. The following year, the process starts all over again, with the curriculum being reviewed once again. Therefore, the year-by-year cycle is as follows: review, develop, implement, evaluate, and analyze and plan.

Chalk Talk: Different Approaches to Teaching Reading
When it comes to teaching reading—arguably the most important skill for children to learn—there is not one agreed-upon “best way” of teaching it. Some experts believe that some techniques are better than others, while others feel that a balanced approach that incorporates several techniques is the best way to go. One strategy centers on phonics instruction. The philosophy of the phonics-based approach is to teach students to first recognize the sound-letter relationships and phonemes (sounds) of the English language so that they can read words by decoding them (sounding them out). Within phonics instruction are different takes on the best way to teach phonics as well. Those who advocate phonics favor a “bottom-up” view of reading, meaning that we should start with the smallest unit of text—letters—before progressing to words, sentences, and stories.
