Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lancaster District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, students read and write about a variety to texts. They practice skills that are applicable in all courses of study, and will help them achieve success in college and careers. The writing portion of the curriculum requires that students learn to write using a process-oriented approach which includes brainstorming and planning, writing, editing and revising, and presenting their work. Research skills are also taught so that students know how to locate information and determine the validity and point of view in texts.
The Math curriculum challenges students to apply critical thinking skills as they seek solutions to real world problems. They delve deeply into each concept until they are able to master and explain all aspects of it. One goal is for students to be exposed to different problem solving methods in numeracy, algebraic operations, and geometry so that over the years they develop quantitative, logical and abstract reasoning skills.

Chalk Talk: Personal Responsibility
Teaching your child personal responsibility will prove to be a valuable lesson for him or her. This means, letting your child be responsible for completing homework and chores, or suffering consequences. Help your child with organization and time management skills, but require them to make age appropriate choices. For example, let them be responsible to recording and bringing home homework each day. If the child forgets, don’t go back to school or make excuses for them. Teach them to be honest about their mistake and allow them to suffer whatever consequence this involves. Prevention of this will not teach them responsibility, which is important for success in college and the career world.
