Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oxford District Curriculum
Oxford City Schools has a data-driven, performance-based program set in place to give each child a complete, well-rounded education
on all ends of the instructional spectrum. To supplement this philosophy of teaching, routine grade-level assessments are given in
reading and math to monitor the progress in each learning strand. This is another way of shedding the light on the students’ needs
and also is another tool for the teachers to be aware of exactly what the students know and what they still need to learn. This
testing also communicates how the children are doing as a whole.
As the students enter middle and high school, there are more choices in terms of class offerings. The students are able to branch
out and discover classes such as foreign language, advanced mathematics, honor’s courses in English, science, and history, agriculture,
health occupation, building trades, and much more. Having developed the solid foundation in the elementary years, the students are
able to succeed in these higher level courses and be ready for the future.

Chalk Talk: What is Differentiated Instruction?
Differentiated Instruction occurs when a teacher uses data-driven teaching techniques. The teacher is able to look at an assessment of a particular learning strand, such as a pre-test, a check-for-understanding assessment, or a post-test, and determine what students know the content of that strand, what students are somewhat familiar with the content (but do not show mastery), and what students are not familiar with the content. By looking at the test, the teacher is then able to "differentiate" the classroom instruction by grouping the children.
What may look like a whole group lesson may not be. The students may have work based on their skill level, and the teacher may have a small group to the side doing a guided remedial lesson on that skill. There are many ways to differentiate instruction, and not one is necessarily better than the other. The important thing is this: the teacher is not assuming all students know the same concepts at the same time. Differentiated instruction is a way to individualize instruction and focus more on an exact concept with the students based on their needs.
