Hyattsville District and Curriculum
The schools in the Prince George’s County Public School District are moving to the Maryland Common Core Curriculum Framework as the basis for their school curriculum. This new curriculum is an evidence based standard with coursework that prepares students for both the workforce and further education. The curriculum is based on a progressive learning experience that starts in the pre Kindergarten years and is cumulatively built on.
Students in Language Arts and Reading at the elementary school level focus on developing reading skills through the use of grade appropriate phonics and word analysis skills. Students learn to pick out the main ideas in reading material and be able to talk about this in class. Elementary students should be able to write basic documents and use resources correctly to substantiate statements in a document. In middle school, students learn to identify the main structure and organization of reading materials, including the key concept and theme. Students writing abilities also grow in complexity as they learn how to write different types of writing from creative stories to research reports. In addition, students learn to write structured arguments that are supported by research conducted by the students. High school students are expected to deal with more complicated text, to read and analyze documents and interpret the readings.
We currently cover the following Hyattsville-area school districts: Prince George’s County Public Schools.
