Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Goshen District Curriculum
The New York State Education Department provides core materials for curricula and/or curriculum guidance that define what each student should know, comprehend and be able to accomplish at the kindergarten through 12th grade level. Each local school district is responsible for providing curricula, selecting text books, developing pacing charts for learning, and giving each student the professional development needed to ensure that they will be able to attain the standards.
In kindergarten five year olds will acquire the groundwork for learning to read. They will first learn to answer the teacher’s questions about important details of a story. By the time they are in second grade they will be able to ask and answer who, what when and how questions that will demonstrate their understanding of a story. By middle school eighth graders will be able to interpret, analyze and evaluate poetry, narratives and drama both ethically and artistically. They will be able to make informed judgments by connecting what they read to ideas, texts and personal events.

Chalk Talk: How to Schedule Electives
Electives are classes that you can take for your own personal interests or you can use them to explore future career goals. If you’re like most students you probably enjoy adding electives to your class schedule. But there are also many required classes you have to take each year if you want to graduate on time. English, Math, Social Studies, Science and a foreign language are requirements for most schools, as well as, economics, sociology and history. PE and health classes may also be required classes for most schools. You can request a list of required classes from your teacher or from the school office. If you need extra help with your classes you may need to arrange an appointment with the school counselor. Then make a schedule of the required classes for each year and be sure to follow it. Choose your required classes first, and then add your electives. Pick your classes wisely. It’s much easier to spend your summer on the beach with your friends, then to spend it making up those required classes in summer school.
