Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hamburg Township District Curriculum
One of the most important aspects of the elementary Language Arts curriculum is the use of the Guided Reading program. Guided Reading involves meeting with small groups of students who read on similar levels to work on strategies and skills. Students are given a Developmental Reading Assessment, or DRA, to determine their reading level. Students are then grouped together based on this level and other assessment data. Students meet daily with the teacher where they read a common book and work together to analyze the plot.
As students enter middle school, these Guided Reading groups become more of a student-led literature circle. Student reading levels will continue to be assessed by the teacher and students will be grouped based on this and other assessment data. However, students will do much more individual reading in order to prepare for their meetings with the other students in their group.

Chalk Talk: How to Encourage a Positive School Attitude
It has been scientifically proven through observation and factual data that students who have a positive attitude about school perform better academically. One of the best ways to promote a positive attitude towards school is to start early when students are at a young age. This involves activities that will create an inquisitive mind and get students excited about learning. Once your child is in the public school system, it will really help for the family to be involved in extracurricular activities at the school. If a student sees that school is fun for his or her parents, the same attitude will pass on to them. As students continue along their educational journey, parents should remain involved throughout all school grades in order to show students the importance of education.
