Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Johnstown District Curriculum
The Common Core Curriculum is focused on ensuring that students have the skills they need to pursue college or other post high school training, and to be able to enter the workforce. In English and Language Arts, students learn to read, write, listen and speak using correct English. Other expectations of the curriculum include the development of critical analysis and an understanding of both informational text and literature. Writing is emphasized so that students are able to write effectively in narrative, persuasive and informational styles.
In Mathematics, students are on a progressive path of learning a limited number of math subjects in an intensive manner. Math subjects include computation, algebra, geometry, probability, measurement and statistics. The goal is that children will build on their math skills in these areas so that by twelfth grade they are mathematically literate and can successfully use problem solving to do higher math.
