Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lewiston District Curriculum
In Language Arts, by second grade, students learn to decode 2 and 3 syllable words. They use spelling patterns and context clues to pronounce new words and determine their meanings. Students learn to add prefixes and suffixes to base words and find synonyms, antonyms and homonyms, developing a list of 300 sight words. They learn to tell the difference between fiction and nonfiction, and to identify the characters, and comprehend plot and setting of stories.
By high school, students refine their grammar skills and learn to tell the difference between poetry and prose. Their essays must have a narrow topic and specific thesis statement. In tenth grade, students learn to identify and describe the author’s point of view, develop their own literary imagery, and use sources from text or references to support information they write. They study tragedies and drama in literature and learn to identify differences between all genres.

Chalk Talk: The Honor Roll
All parents dream of their child “making the honor roll”. It is something to be proud of. Grade schools recognize these students and colleges readily accept them. This kind of interest and support has motivated schools to develop more than just the honor roll status. Today’s “smart” students can participate in an honors program at most elementary and high schools. Eligible students can enroll in classes that are specially designed for students who perform at an advanced level. Instead of just giving the first students who are finished with assignments “busy work”, teachers can devote the entire period to teaching and assigning class work that is appropriate and relevant. This opportunity will better prepare them for college and may, in some cases, allow them to begin college courses while still attending high school. In a world that is so competitive and that embraces the entire globe as colleagues, an honors program is a wonderful preparation for higher education and a successful career.
