Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lancaster District Curriculum
Lancaster students encounter a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction texts in the districts’ English Language Arts classrooms. However, their interaction with those texts does not begin and end with reading. Students master a holistic approach to reading and communication that fosters the development of important skills such as close reading, research, writing, speaking, comprehending and critiquing, and using current technology and digital media.
Lancaster students are expected to master core mathematics concepts such as numeration, analysis, problem solving, reasoning, and precise communication. Student begin learning core concepts in the earliest grades, and then go on to further build their knowledge of those concepts grade-by-grade. Students are required to apply their knowledge of core concepts to real world problems, not just work out problems on paper and screens.

Chalk Talk: Technology and Learning
It seems as if day-to-day life is filled with more distractions now than it has ever been filled with before. Well, the truth is that it only seems that way if you are over 25. Today’s kids have grown up in a world were every device plugs in, every computer is used for entertainment, and whatever they want is only a click away. It is no wonder that kids instantaneously go from being highly distracted to getting sucked into seemingly endless YouTube marathons. Many parents fret over the unstoppable creep of technology into the classroom. The problem is that see it from their point of view, not from the point of view of a digital native. People who grew up pre-Internet might struggle to pull themselves away from their screens and might not be comfortable distinguishing good information from bad information on the Internet, but that is not a problem that digital natives have. They grew up in the world of screens, debatable facts, and infotainment. They are in their element.
