Lincoln Charter Township District and Curriculum
All the school districts attended by Lincoln Charter Township students follow the Michigan Academic Standards set by the Michigan Department of Education. The Michigan Merit Curriculum outlines these standards for Arts, English language arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and World Languages and also provides Career and College Readiness Standards that detail the skills students should have to be prepared for post-secondary life. The standards are written broadly, allowing teachers to use their judgement as to how best to instruct their students in the goals.
We currently cover the following Lincoln Charter Township-area school districts: Berrien County Intermediate School District, Bridgman Public Schools, Lakeshore Public Schools, and St. Joseph Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lincoln Charter Township District Curriculum
The Math curriculum focuses on the areas of numeracy and operational sense, algebra, geometry, and data analysis. Students learn to perform basic operations, recognize patterns, recognize shape and learn how to measure, and learn about proportions and ratios during their elementary years, preparing them for more complex work in middle and high school. To the greatest extent possible, these topics are related to their real world applications and increasingly integrated into science, technology and engineering courses.
The English curriculum includes skills in reading, writing, listening and sharing orally. At times these sections work together so the students and teachers can see how they have progressed. While studying classic works, the students may be asked to read a book alone or in a small group, then create a poster or a presentation on one specific section of the book. This presentation can be made in the form of a speech or even a debate where others will need to listen to important points. There will be times when these skills will be needed to give formal presentations.

Chalk Talk: Test Terminology
Test terminology can be difficult to understand. There may be a number of scores listed but it may be difficult to understand the differences. A raw score tells the number of questions that had correct answers on the test and does not tell any true information. Standard scores take into consideration other students of the same age and grade. These are represented as a part of a normal curve. When test results talk about grade or age equivalent scores they look at the way a student answers the questions and then tell what level the student is at, according to this test. For these results a third grade student may be given a score of 6.3 in reading. This means that when the student reads, they are reading the material the way a sixth grade student would read it. The percentile rank compares this student with others that took the test while a stanine rates a student on a scale from 1 to 9, where 1,2,3 are below average and 7,8,9 are above.
