Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lenoir District Curriculum
Lenoir County Public Schools has developed many goals related to academics. These include all graduates being prepared to go to college or start in the workforce, all students having the opportunity to complete two years of college coursework while in high school, all incoming ninth graders being able to complete their core high school classes within their first five semesters, all students being proficient in reading by the end of their second grade year. Recognizing the requirements for critical reading during middle schools, the literacy goals are a major emphasis of the elementary curriculum.
With new attention on College and Career Readiness Standards, high school students are able to take advantage of a wider variety of program options than in the past. Lenoir County Early College High School, which opened in 2007, is situated on the Lenoir County Community College campus and gives students the opportunity to earn a two-year degree or transferable college credits alongside their high school diploma. The school contains classes with fewer students, which allows teachers to give them more individualized attention.

Chalk Talk: Developing Literacy Skills
One major advantage of digital storytelling—the act of telling a story or presenting information about a topic using a variety of digital multimedia, including images, voice narrations, and music—is that it is highly flexible. It can be used effectively in any content area, in any grade level, and in many ways. Teachers can create digital stories to introduce a new topic they are teaching and use the story in the lesson’s anticipatory set to engage students in the new learning. They can be used after reading to enhance textbook material, to present research, or to simply tell a story. Students can devise digital stories individually or in small groups. It goes without saying that, the younger the students are, the more direction they will need; however, even today’s youngest students are generally proficient at using technology and are fast learners, so teachers should not be scared off from incorporating digital storytelling at the elementary level.
