Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Georgetown District Curriculum
The district has several curricular goals: to put students and all aspects of their growth first; to promote excellence in academics and be innovative; to foster pride in the school district and its students, the community, the nation, and the world; to provide a comprehensive and rigorous curriculum that develops critical thinking and problem solving skills in students; to cultivate lifelong learners who become productive citizens; to create a strong partnership with parents and the community that supports the achievement and dreams of students; to emphasize 21st century skills; and to welcome diversity in students.
The district’s curriculum is vertically aligned and standards-based, incorporates formative and summative assessments, integrates technology, differentiates instruction, incorporates tiered instruction and interventions for struggling students, and follows an Understanding by Design model. This helps to tie together the different subject areas for students and progress with each at a pace that allows students to master more complex topics each year. Each subject is organized by its major topics and specifies the skills and knowledge central to each topic.

Chalk Talk: What Do Students Learn in Geography?
Geography is a branch of the social sciences dedicated to the study of land and its features. Geography concepts are typically interwoven into elementary social studies classes. In middle school, geography may continue to be intertwined into social studies classes, or an entire course may be devoted to the study. By high school, there is not as much emphasis on geography, as students are expected to have already mastered most geography concepts. Knowledge of geography concepts provides a solid foundation for success in social studies. Perhaps one of the most important geography skills students learn is how to read maps; this includes recognizing directions, identifying capitals and major cities, differentiating between different types of landforms, and understanding longitude and latitude. Other geographic concepts include landforms (oceans, deserts, deltas, glaciers, mountains, peninsulas), physical human characteristics of places, the understanding of different scales, and physical and human processes that impact the environment.
