Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Plymouth Township District Curriculum
In all subjects, teachers use a spiraled program that allows students to gain consistent practice with a standard in order to obtain mastery. Students work in a journal during the school day that has practice sheets as well as Math Boxes that can be used for assessment. The Math Boxes will generally contain problems related to what students are learning at the moment as well as skills that have been previously taught which allows for maintenance of skills throughout the year and into the next grade.
The middle school math curriculum is based on the Connected Math program by Pearson. This is a program that was designed specifically for grades 6-8 and uses a problem-based system of teaching. Students in the sixth grade focus on fractions and probability through the eight units taught during the year. Seventh grade students concentrate on proportion, scale, geometry, and linear relationships, while eighth graders focus on manipulating data.

Chalk Talk: National Honor Society
The National Honor Society (NHS) was created in 1921 by the National Association of Secondary School Principals. This organization recognizes students who are excelling in many areas such as academically and socially. The criterion for induction looks at four different aspects including character, service, scholarship, and leadership. Once chosen, students are inducted during a traditional ceremony. Often times, parents are told about the honor but it is kept secret from the student until the actual ceremony occurs. Once a student has joined the National Honor Society, they must conduct a number of community service projects and maintain high grades in all subjects. Most high schools throughout the United States have a chapter of the National Honor Society and over 1,000,000 students each year serve in these chapters.
