Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New Castle District Curriculum
New Castle’s English Language Arts curriculum is based on the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards, which the state of New York adopted in 2011. The curriculum requires students to develop the ability to read both fiction and non-fiction texts closely and attentively. It then encourages students to use these basic literacy skills to master other literacy skills such as researching, critical thinking, and communicating both verbally and in writing. Students are expected to write for a variety of purposes, as well, and understand how to work through the writing process to present well-organized, grammatically correct, and original essays.
New Castle’s Math curriculum is also based on the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards. The curriculum requires students to understand core mathematics concepts such as algebraic reasoning, geometry and measurement, the use of computational tools, and the ability to attend to precision in problem-solving beginning in the earliest grades.

Chalk Talk: Learning about Teamwork
If a person reads enough articles about education and schools he or she might begin to think that students only learn lessons about teamwork on sports fields. Obviously, that is not true. Students learn about teamwork every time they split into groups to answer biology questions or solve math problems. They also learn about teamwork in those classes that promote creativity and collaboration through art projects. One of the classes in which students learn the most about teamwork is theatre. A theatre class is a team. It is made up of individual players. Each player uses his or her unique sills to contribute to the team. These skills include, but are not limited to, costume design, lighting, acting, writing, and directing. The theatre team often has only one big game per year, the end-of-the-year production. The team works together to make the production the best it can be. Of course, there is no win/loss record at the end of the year, but each team member knows whether or not he or she did his or her best.
