Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Keene District Curriculum
Students progressing through the Language Arts program are expected to analyze and interpret a variety of texts, including informational texts, expository texts, speeches, and fictional stories. While literacy and reading fluency is crucial, it is also important to communicate understanding effectively. Students should be able to produce effective analysis of the texts they read, as well as construct well-thought out arguments. As students make their way through high school they should also utilize research techniques.
The Framework for Science Literacy encourages students to view science from multiple perspectives through inquiry and critical thinking. Students are expected to learn scientific processes and skills, as well as gain content-based knowledge within the biological and physical sciences. Students will scaffold learning to become comfortable with more complex topics such as photosynthesis, respiration, chemical equations, cell structure, and the properties of matter.

Chalk Talk: Avoiding Fallacies: Anecdotal Evidence
Many times when constructing an argument, especially about a topic you know little about, the only basis of evidence you have is personal experience. This, however, only weakens your argument, because other people have not had these same experiences and the experience itself may be rare. For example, you may create an argument that all fast food restaurants are evil because you tripped and broke your arm once when you were in line for a burger. This is a rather ridiculous claim, though, as most people do not have the unfortunate luck of breaking a limb in the fast food line. Presenting your experience as a reason others should choose to dine elsewhere would create a weak argument.
