Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mt. Vernon District Curriculum
In Language Arts, there is a focus on the development of reading skills moving from simple to challenging texts. All students gain the ability to critically analyze text, and both write and talk about the reading. Students also learn to write expository compositions, research reports and relate their reading material to themselves, to their knowledge and to their world. Students learn to appreciate different forms of literature and understand was of conducting analysis of various texts.
The basis of the Math curriculum is to provide students with a working knowledge of mathematical principles and to know when and how to apply these principles in a technological age. In elementary school, students learn numbers, computational skills, measurements and the fundamentals of algebra and geometry. As students continue with their studies, they develop skills in using rational numbers, proportional relationships, linear equations, and word problems. Statistics and variability is also part of the curriculum. Students explore statistical variability and learn how to summarize and describe distributions.
