Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Englewood District Curriculum
The Mathematics curriculum encompasses skills in numeracy, operations, algebraic thinking, geometry, and data and statistics. Students begin by learning about basic patterning and then learn about how algebraic equations rely on pattern-type relationships to hold up. Students also take their awareness of shapes and perform spatial analysis and learn about geometric problem-solving techniques.
In Language Arts, students read and analyze fiction and nonfiction novels, poems and prose. They also learn to find multiple themes in one particular piece. By high school, the curriculum requires that students use various styles in speaking, proper use of hyphenation, specific use of reference materials, including a thesaurus; identification of satire, irony and sarcasm; reading and analysis of the classics and participating in debate speech. In 12th grade, they learn to apply syntax to writing; read college level materials, use citations, and analyze literature.

Chalk Talk: Critical Reading Goals: Fluency
There is often a misconception that fluency equates to reading quickly, but rapid reading is meaningless if students fail to comprehend a passage or use appropriate expressions when reading. Fluency is a combination of rapid word recognition that relates to the comprehension of those words and reading with the proper pronunciation, pacing, and expression in a way so that it sounds like spoken language. Students having a solid base of vocabulary lends to better recognition of words in texts and comprehension. Comprehension means understanding and making meaning out of what is being read. Reading is meaningless if students do not comprehend what they read, and high-quality instruction in the other four areas should ultimately lead to a high level of comprehension. Phonemic awareness and phonics skills help students to learn to read by decoding words. Once students progress, they read fluently in such a way that they recognize words smoothly without having to decode and can make meaning out of the reading. If students cannot understand the vocabulary of the text, obviously, they cannot comprehend what the text is saying.
