Newport District and Curriculum
Newport Public Schools is a progressive school district that provides educational support for students enrolled in kindergarten through senior high school. Newport Public Schools is committed to following the Common Core State Standards. The standards for each grade level are divided into several sections. The first section, Key Ideas and Details, enumerates the main ideas that will be covered by the end of the grade level. The next section, Craft and Structure, reveals what students should be able to do by the end of the grade level. Integration of Knowledge and Ideas describes how students will use the information. Finally, Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity explains the genre and reading level of texts that are used.
We currently cover the following Newport-area school district: Newport Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Newport District Curriculum
As an example, the fifth grade standards for Language Arts lists three key ideas and details. The main ideas are drawing inferences, determining theme, and comparing and contrasting details such as characters or settings of the text. Under the second heading, students receive three goals: they should be able to discern the meaning of words and phrases in a text even if it is written in figurative language. Secondly, students should be able to explain how the features of the text integrate to form the overall structure. Finally, students should be able to relate how the point of view of the narrator is reflected in the description of events.
In the Mathematics curriculum, the district has incorporated technology to improve the outcomes of mathematics instruction and to provide engaging practice for students. Many of the tools used are web-based as research suggests that virtual manipulatives can be as effective as physical ones in the development of math concepts. The tools are accessible on the district website.

Chalk Talk: Taking the Initiative
Do you feel that none of the clubs at school really speak to your interests? Do you have a unique hobby or talent? Take the initiative and develop a club to involve others in your passion. The first step is to speak to your teachers and administrators. The administrators will have to approve your plan and each club needs a staff member to sponsor the club and coordinate the meetings. Next, talk to some of your classmates and friends to gauge their level of interest. Some schools require a minimum number of members for each club. You can also arrange to have a trial meeting or a demonstration during lunch periods to generate enthusiasm. Even if you do not have enough interested parties to begin a new club, you may find a new friend or two who is interested in your same pastime. Perhaps your hobby is not as unique as you think!
