Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Charleston District Curriculum
Early childhood education integrates reading comprehension, listening, speaking, and writing. Vocabulary and grammar make up the fifth pillar of the curriculum. Students read poetry and prose by the second grade and build to close, attentive reading. By Grade 4, they are expected to be able to do research and share results, and by Grade 5, they are required to be able to track the development of a theme or key idea through the text. Students learn to interpret and evaluate information from visual, oral, and written sources, and to tailor speech to specific audiences and purposes.
Secondary school students are expected to build skills for critical analysis, including thoughtful engagement with important texts, reading and writing in order to develop and answer questions, and the use of reasoning, logic and evidence to build a case. Students use visual displays and digital media for presentations. By grade 12, students must demonstrate an ability to evaluate the claims in an argument and to determine the validity of an argument or source.

Chalk Talk: Quick Ideas to Help Your Child Succeed in Math
What your child learns today is crucial to his or her ability to learn tomorrow. Here are a couple things that every parent can do to help children in math.
- Schedule time for math. We all know that it’s hard to do quality work under duress, so help your child earn good marks by carving out time each day for math. Maybe it’s every afternoon at 4:30, or every night after dinner—but no matter when, make sure there’s enough time to complete the typical assignment. This way, your child doesn’t have to race against time.
- Create opportunities for real-life math. Parents use math all the time- when shopping, cooking, building, and gardening. When you feel yourself using numbers, think of it as a learning opportunity for your child. While shopping, have your child keep track of your budget. Put your children in charge of tallying the mileage in your car—they can even remind you when you need an oil change.
