Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Roanoke Rapids District Curriculum
Roanoke Rapids Graded School District emphasizes literacy and math learning during the elementary years with a focus on preparing students for the increased pace and complexity of middle school. Students learn to read and critically think about works of fiction and non-fiction, and are asked to convey their thoughts in short pieces of writing. In middle school, greater formality is introduced into the writing curriculum and students are expected to use proper conventions and strong vocabulary.
The district is highly committed to implementing innovative teaching methods to increase student learning, and its Curriculum and Instruction Department uses a “lead by example” approach in terms of designing and delivering lessons and activities using technology and actually utilizing the technology in the classroom. This helps ensure that there is timely support for teachers having difficulty using technology, that district standards are maintained, that security is established, and that training is delivered to teachers.

Chalk Talk: Elementary Literacy Development
Teachers may feel that very young students may be incapable of creating complete storybooks, but one of the major advantages of storytelling as a literacy teaching tool is that it is so flexible and can be used in all the grade levels. The process can certainly be adapted for elementary students; the younger their students, the more time teachers have to spend going over the process and how to use the specific programs, but even today’s youngest students are regular technology users and are fast learners. With elementary school students, it is likely best for them to create the storyboards for their digital stories using pencil-and-paper template, cutting down the preparation time and the risk for technical difficulties. A simpler approach is to to have students use PowerPoint to devise their digital stories, as they likely will be familiar using this program. They can type out their stories or information slide-by-slide, insert their images and animations, and record certain portions of the story with their voices to be played back.
