Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Elizabethtown-Kitley District Curriculum
The curriculum details each subject on a grade-by-grade basis, establishing clear expectations for learning in each subject. In Math, these expectations run the course of operational and procedural problem-solving strategies in numerical and algebraic operations, geometric functions and measurement, and means of analyzing and communicating about quantitative data. In Science, the learning expectations encompass the processes of scientific inquiry, foundational content knowledge in biology, earth and space science, and properties of the physical world.
In English, students receive an education which is meant to develop their literacy and communication skills within all content areas. The focus on reading uses both fiction and non-fiction to develop students' abilities to read and respond to texts analytically and to determine ways to evaluate the points of view of authors.

Chalk Talk: Improve Writing by Eliminating These Words and Phrases
Being a good writer takes a lot of knowledge of writing strategies and a whole lot of practice. Since younger students don’t yet have either of these things, they can sometimes come to rely on overused words and phrases that detract from their message. Words such as “like,” “things,” “stuff,” and “very” are all extremely vague and do not provide the reader with any kind of valuable information. Each word also gives the impression that the writer is unfamiliar with the topic about which they are writing and that they have a limited vocabulary. Phrases such as “sort of” and “kind of” are similarly offensive, and provide no real value for readers. Beginning writers can also overuse phrases. “My paper is going to be about” is a much-used phrase when students don’t know how else to begin a writing assignment. This is a major no-no because rather than introducing the actual topic, it tells the reader that you will be telling them in the story. Instead of using these overused words and phrases, students should instead use specific, relevant terms that shed light on their position or opinion.
