Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Greeneville District Curriculum
The English language arts curriculum is based on Common Core Standards which has organized the topic so that it benefits students in all areas of learning. There is an increased emphasis on non-fiction and reading for information so that students are able to understand their science, history and other texts. The curriculum also requires that students learn how to locate and evaluate information, recognize bias and purpose, and be able to incorporate the works of other authors into their own writing.
The geography curriculum is included under the history and social studies framework. This topic is introduced by helping students understand general directional words, such as north, far, here and so on. After they show understanding for this type of word they progress to learning the topographical features that helped to settle their area. This is then expanded upon to explore the nation and other nations. By showing that there is a unity in what helps a culture decide to settle in one area, the students are able to see a unity with others around the world.

Chalk Talk: College Applications
Most colleges require standardized test scores, but more and more are making them optional. If they do require them, then, of course, those are due by the application deadline. If they’re not required, there’s usually a substitute required, such as a graded essay. The transcript will show the course of study a student took and the level of rigor in the classes chosen. For the essay, personal narratives are often required and are effective and appeal to readers. As far as what to write about, the main thing is to write about the topic with enthusiasm. An effective approach would be to pick one or two topics and focus on them. Also, recommendations from teachers, coaches, and employers are important. Teacher recommendations give insight into the student’s classroom behavior and study skills.
