Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glastonbury District Curriculum
The core curriculum of Language Arts, Social Studies, Math and Science is taught along major topical strands. Beginning in elementary school, students develop the foundations by which they are able to accomplish advanced studies in high school. In Language Arts, major emphasis is placed on reading strategies that promote the analysis of meaning. Writing is a major component of the curriculum, and students are expected to develop a range of styles.
The Mathematics curriculum calls for a range of operational abilities in numeracy, geometry, measurement, algebraic thinking, and data analysis. Students are expected to develop mathematic literacy by reading charts and graphs, and are expected to communicate their work process in math terms. The goal is for students to learn a variety of problem-solving strategies which will allow them to effectively size up the best way to solve a problem and have the means to draw and extrapolate information from their knowledge base.

Chalk Talk: Getting Kids to Write
It is becoming increasingly difficult for students of the past couple generations to be able to be successful in college and the workforce without having strong writing skills. From writing reports or resumes, the ability to be able to communicate your thoughts and feelings in a logical and understandable way is essential. Writing doesn’t end with book reports in school however; writing should be incorporated in algebra and even physical education and beyond. It has long since been a standard in the advanced or gifted classes, but getting all students to start writing on a wide variety of subjects really gives them a chance to make connections they may have missed otherwise. If they cannot effectively express themselves in words, they will have a very difficult time attaining higher paying jobs or even getting into college.
