Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Elizabeth City District Curriculum
Elizabeth City-Pasquotank County Public Schools’ Curriculum & Instruction Team is comprised of the Elementary Instructional Coordinator, the Elementary English Language Arts Instructional Coach, the Elementary Math Instructional Coach, the Secondary ELA Instructional Coach, the Secondary Math Instructional Coach, and the Secondary Science Instructional Coach. The district has composed several “LiveBinders” that outline different curricular areas in an interactive fashion.
For example the elementary-level English language arts and math “binders” contain tabs with the standards, the unpacking of the standards, tasks for gifted students, pacing guides that outline which topics are taught at which points in the year, educational game ideas, etc. The secondary-level LiveBinders consist of items such as the standards, assessment specifications, pacing guides, wikis, and professional development resources.

Over 2,000 schools from across the nation participate in the competition, which takes into account writing, photography, and page design. One of the most popular aspects of the 2015 yearbooks, which sold more than 200 copies, was the inclusion of the student-submitted selfies.
- Elizabeth-Pasquotank District Names Principal of the Year - Pasquotank High Principal Amy Fyffe was named the 2016 Principal of the Year for the district. When Ms. Fyffe took over as principal, her goal was to make the school student-centered, which has helped to lower dropout rates, improve student achievement, and increase graduation rates. This has also contributed to closing racial achievement gaps, as just over 90 percent of the school's African American students graduated in 2015.

Chalk Talk: Storytelling and Literacy Development
There are many benefits of incorporating digital storytelling—the act of telling a story or presenting information about a topic using a variety of digital multimedia, including images, voice narrations, and music—in the classroom. First of all, the very act of creating them involves students practicing reading and writing! As with other forms of educational technology, it engages and motivates students and makes textbook material more interesting, relatable, and personal to students, as they choose their own images, music, and audio to be used in their stories. Of particular importance is that it helps motivate reluctant readers to read more after they create their own digital stories. It also benefits students with diverse learning styles and is a multi-sensory approach; for example, the inclusion of the images in the stories is advantageous to visual learners.
