Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Queensbury District Curriculum
Instruction in math is guided by a curriculum that prioritizes a deep knowledge of core mathematics concepts over a shallow knowledge of a broad range of mathematics concepts. Students are introduced to core mathematics concepts in the early grades, and then go on develop their ability to understand and apply those concepts as they move up through subsequent grades.
Instruction in English Language Arts is guided by a curriculum that does not prioritize only reading and writing. Though students are expected to read closely and attentively and clearly communicate their thoughts in writing, they are also expected to master speaking, listening, and language skills. For instance, students must master correct sentence structure and comma usage in clauses and phrases, and have the correct use of common homophones such as affect/effect or their/there.

Chalk Talk: Old Rules Still Apply
Reading, math, and technological literacy are all important parts of a modern education, but there is more to learning than facts and figures. By interacting with teachers, school, staff, and other students, children learn about citizenship. Parents and teachers should support this learning by looking for opportunities to talk to students about how they get along and communicate with others. Some children will be greatly affected by the behavior of their peers, discussing these feelings will help the child process what they are seeing and better enable them to become the type of person they want to become. Parents and teachers can give students tips on being good citizens, or compliment students on when they demonstrate good citizenship. After all, learning how to treat and communicate with others is an important part of every child’s education, and is as important to future success as instruction in core subjects.
