Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Northborough District Curriculum
The main goal of the high school’s English language arts department is to cultivate readers, writers and speakers who are confident in their language skills. It does this by implementing a writing process that includes peer review and revision as well as basing reading on reader response theory. The school offers more generalized courses to underclassmen, but juniors and seniors have the opportunity to take classes focused on more specific topics, such as Creative Writing and Dramatic Literature. A course on the writer’s workshop is also offered.
The social studies department has keyed in on ten themes that courses are built around, with each containing essential questions. The themes are communication, conflict, economy, geography, identity, leadership, power, revolution, rights and responsibility, and technology. There is also a list of interrelated themes pertaining to these categories which are addressed in greater depth in each social studies course.

Chalk Talk: Help with Homework
Sometimes, getting children to do their homework is a constant battle. Students may be exhausted after a long day of school and extracurricular activities, or they just may struggle mightily with it. As children become older, they may feel that there is no point in doing homework. It is essential that parents strike the proper balance in helping their children do their homework. They should be encouraging while also emphasizing the importance of their homework. Parents don’t need to force their children to do their homework the second they walk in the door, but they should not wait until it is late and they become tired. It is alright for children to take some brief breaks and eat a healthy snack if needed. If a student is struggling with homework, parents can provide help, but they should avoid giving away answers and doing the work for them.
