New Carrolltown District and Curriculum
As of 2010, Maryland and the State Board of Education adopted the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and English/Language Arts. The standards were created to establish uniformity across states and from school to school, ensuring that students are receiving the same quality education. Prince George’s County Public School District is moving to put the Maryland Common Core Curriculum in place as the district’s basis for curriculum in Math and Language Arts. The curriculum covers all grades from Pre-K through 12th grade and is based on progressive learning of the same type of material but with increasing complexity.
At the elementary school level, students in the PGCPS district focus on reading skills as part of their curriculum. The program includes the use of phonics and word analysis. The curriculum is focused on understanding reading material and being able to discuss the reading in class. As students master basic reading skills, the students are expected to provide feedback and analysis of what they have read including in written form and in oral presentations. In middle school, students are expected to analyze their reading, and identify the organization of the writing including themes, and main ideas. Students should also be able to write opinion pieces on the reading and back up their opinion with additional facts. High school students will focus on analyzing complex reading material. Students will be expected to relate their reading material to other literature and to write multifaceted essays on the reading. In the area of writing, high school students will be expected to be able to write detailed research reports.
We currently cover the following New Carrolltown-area school district: Prince George’s County Public Schools.
