Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pelham District Curriculum
The Math curriculum begins with a basic recognition and understanding of numbers, shifting into counting, and basic mathematic operations as students become more comfortable with the concepts. As students progress they will become familiar with variables, algebraic functions, fractions and decimals. In high school, students will take these concepts to a higher level, incorporating statistics and probability, as well as advanced algebraic and geometric concepts.
The basis of the Language Arts curriculum is in reading comprehension and writing fluency, which begins with a basic understanding of vocabulary, which is then expanded upon. Students are expected to recognize various elements within both fiction and nonfiction texts, including plot, conflict, and resolution. Later, students are expected to express their knowledge and opinions through writing, showing mastery over the written word. Research skills are also taught, developing the ability to evaluate the validity of different types of texts.

Chalk Talk: Rhetorical Devices
When writing a persuasive argument, rhetoric, or the way in which you write, can make the difference between a strong argument and a weak argument. Great writers employ a variety of rhetorical devices to make their text more readable. These devices can be as simple as a metaphor, or as complicated as parallel syntactical structure. A good writer will use these devices naturally, but it is important to be able to at least recognize them, if not use them yourself. For example, the famous line “of the people, for the people, by the people” from Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address employs two different rhetorical devices. First of all, it is a reference, or allusion, to the Declaration of Independence. Secondly, it uses a parallel structure called triad. Each phrase, set off by commas, is parallel to the one before it, with three total. This makes the line easy to remember and recall, giving it lasting weight.
