Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Groton District Curriculum
In Language Arts, students should be able to read and understand complex text aimed at readying students for college level curriculum. This is taught along with competent writing skills that are essential not only in college but in the workforce as well. Students learn how to write creative, reflective, expository and persuasive essays throughout their school years. Language based skills such as vocabulary acquisition and understanding of grammar are also a part of the curriculum.
The same fundamental skills apply to the curriculum in Math and Science. Students are taught key scientific principles and content, but also develop the process-oriented thought of scientific inquiry. In Math, the emphasis is on truly allowing students to have a strong understanding of mathematics skills by using hands-on applications in each grade level so that each topic may be studied in depth.

Chalk Talk: Education and Technology
There is no escaping that the internet has become important to the education system. From teachers simply having their own class website to the ability to be able to earn high school diploma entirely online, the age of sitting idly by in the classroom may be a thing of the past. There is much debate however about the pros and cons of this style of learning. While it is certainly not for every student, some may find it is a valuable resource and desirable alternative to the tradition educational setting. Teachers can post all of the materials to websites and provide forums for class discussion. Those unable to attend conventional school can find they feel safe to engage and speak their mind, as well as ask questions when they might have otherwise kept quiet at the back of the classroom.
