Rye District and Curriculum
The NH College and Career Ready Standards is the curriculum in use in both the elementary and high school which students from Rye attend. The Standards detail the learning expectations in all core subjects and electives so that educators are able to use a scope and sequence that ensures students are instructed in all topics of a subject. The objectives include critical thinking goals and 21st century learning skills include creative thinking, collaborative learning, and the ability to work on projects that integrate different subjects. As students move on to high school, interdisciplinary and independent learning are emphasized so that students are self-sufficient and able to transition to the demands of college or career.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rye District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum seeks to develop a full repertoire of literacy and communication skills for students. The literacy skills which students should become proficient in include comprehension, analysis and interpretation, and recognition of an author’s purpose or bias. Communication skills include organization of thoughts, expression, ability to listen, response, and body language. These areas are developed by integrating the teaching of reading, writing, and discussing or presenting material.
Compiling information from various resources is another skill students develop during their studies. They learn how to incorporate quotes into a paper, a grammar and punctuation guide, use literary devices such as figurative language, irony, genre, antagonist/protagonist, plot, setting, theme, and tone. Students also receive instruction on language usage so that they know the difference between affect/effect, accept/except, lie/lay, among/between, farther/further and how to use effective transition words in writing.

Chalk Talk: Developmental Characteristics in Adolescence
The teen years can be a time of great change. By learning what these changes entail, parents can learn when to show concern. Physically, teens will go through rapid physical changes with variations that are due to genetics, the environment and health. During this time there will be distinction between male and female in size, strength and the age of the growth. The teen years are also a time to watch for issues such as eating disorders, sexual experimentation and drug use. Social allegiances will begin to turn more and more to friends and less to parents. Teens also begin to interact socially without parents overseeing them. Finally, teens are able to reason more and can make choices ethically and morally, even though some of these choices will be affected by their social circles. With these guidelines in mind, parents can see that their teens are facing many changes that can leave them confused.
