## Hillsborough District and Curriculum

The Hillsboro-Deering School District follow the NH College and Career Ready Standards for their curricular guidelines. The learning objectives in the curriculum give clear expectations for what they should learn by the end of each year. Students read a variety of complex texts so that they are ready for the demands of college, career, and life and have learned analytic skills to enhance their comprehension. They also explore a wide range of topics in math and science which also incorporate engineering topics and integrate learning in these subjects. Students can also learn a foreign language and there are many elective courses in the arts, technology, and business. These courses assist students as they prepare for post-secondary life.

We currently cover the following Hillsborough-area school district: Hillsboro-Deering School District.

## Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hillsborough District Curriculum

A large part of the Math Standards for elementary students is operations and algebraic thinking. After gaining mastery of multiplication, students begin to learn division. In the early stages of learning division, students can use arrays—arrangements of objects or pictures in rows and columns—to help them solve division problems. For example, if students had to solve the problem 24 / 6 = ? and they were given 24 apples, they could figure out the answer to the problem by arranging the apples into equal groups (or rows) of six.

They would find that the apples could be arranged into four equal rows. Students should also be able to carry over their knowledge of the basic multiplication facts to solve division problems. For example, if they know that 9 x 4 equals 36, they should also know that 36 / 4 is equal to nine. Students who did not master their basic multiplication facts will struggle with division. Students solve basic word problems involving division. Division word problems may use words such as “split evenly,” “half of,” and “into groups,” and students may be asked to find the “quotient.”

## Chalk Talk: Teaching Respect

Respect, generally means showing consideration for someone or something. In order to be able to communicate well with others, children need to understand what is expected and should not confuse respect with obedience. Parents can best teach respect by demonstrating it with the child. In everyday activities parents should show respect for themselves, the children, teachers and others. To effectively do this parents need to make sure that they do not use labels, sarcasm or criticism. Children also need to learn how to vocalize their feelings in a respectful way. As the child becomes a teenager there will be times when it is hard to show respect while helping them experience more independence. Treat the child with respect, no matter what the age. Parents need to remember they are the best role model for the child. Even as the child grows, they will still turn to the parent to see how to handle circumstances that they may come upon.
