Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fuquay-Varina District Curriculum
The elementary grades use a balanced approach to literacy instruction, as students receive direct, explicit instruction in foundational skills, comprehension, fluency, and vocabulary. The balanced literacy approach consists of daily instruction in both reading and writing; learning in whole-group, small-group, and individualized settings; and teachers modeling comprehension and work attack strategies and higher order thinking skills. The use of digital media helps students apply, locate, synthesize, and utilize information.
Math instruction focuses on deep conceptual understanding, with students solving real-world problems and collaborating with classmates. Science instruction in the district is student-centered; inquiry-based; and involves students predicting, talking and sharing, recording observations and data, and generating responses based on evidence. Understanding the process of scientific discovery is a key goal. Another goal is for students to be able to utilize all the logical reasoning strategies they learn in many problem-solving contexts.

Chalk Talk: Student Feedback
It is important that students receive thoughtful feedback on their performance, which can help explain the grades they received. The teacher comments should describe some things the student did well and what he/she could improve upon. Following is an example of teacher feedback on a fifth grade student who received a cumulative grade of an ‘A’ on a social studies unit. During this unit, each student has completed several projects, researching the country of his or her choice. The purpose of this unit was not only for the students to learn about their countries—as well as others—but also to work on their writing, research, and presentation skills.
