Frostburg District and Curriculum
At the elementary level, the district uses Maryland’s Voluntary State Curriculum. Students begin with learning phonics, word analysis and fundamental reading skills. As students progress they learn to read at grade level or above with confidence, expanding their vocabulary by 8-12 new words per week. Both grammar and reading comprehension is stressed in elementary level English. Students are also asked to summarize the reading, and answer questions on the text. Writing skills are also critical and elementary students learn to write cohesive essays using their own ideas and topics. Middle school students are expected to identify the structure of their reading material, identify the main ideas, key points, and be able to relate the writing to other reading material and to their own lives. In writing students learn to generate topic ideas, create writing plans, do their own research and use correct grammar and spelling in their documents.
In high school, the district is using the Core Learning Goals for High School Language Arts as the Common Core curriculum for this age group is in draft form. Students are expected to be able to write cohesive, well researched reports, and creative writing assignments. High school students are expected to demonstrate the ability to read complex literature, write a detailed analysis of the material and be able to present it to the class.
We currently cover the following Frostburg-area school districts: Allegany County Public Schools.
