Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Florence District Curriculum

The Math curriculum is based on Common Core State Standards which breaks down the topic along the lines of numeracy and operations, algebra, geometry, data analysis, and provides for the learning objectives in more advanced math such as trigonometry and pre-calculus. The curriculum is progressive and scaffolds students experience by introducing increasingly complex skills each year. Ultimately, the curriculum has a number of goals including the ability to determine the best computational method or tools to solve a problem and the development of mathematic reasoning skills.

The Language Arts curriculum is similar in that it is structured around the key components of the subject - reading, writing, verbal communication, media viewing, and conducting research. These skills are integrated and students learn how to use information from what they have read to formulate and write about or discuss their own ideas. Language and vocabulary skills are emphasized throughout the curriculum and students are expected to be able to use formal English in their written assignments.

Chalk Talk: Developing Critical Reading Skills

Developing critical reading skills involves many different analytic strategies, which are best learned one at a time although often one text can teach multiple reading strategies. One aspect of critical reading is questioning the text - asking what the purpose is and how the author is achieving his/her goal. Another strategy in critical reading is to generate predictions about what might happen or what information may come out, and then questioning the assumptions used to make the predictions. A third strategy involves analyzing the effectiveness of an author's purpose or ability to create the effect sought. Students should always have the opportunity to discuss the texts they are reading, explore their interests and write about the reading they have learned from. These activities all greatly enhance the critical awareness brought to reading.
