Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Salem District Curriculum

Within Mathematics, this means that students are expected to become comfortable working problem sets that incorporate arithmetic, algebra, geometry, probability, and statistics. Science courses will focus on inquiry and the results thereof. Students are expected to become familiar with elements of biology, chemistry, and physical science. Over the course of their studies they will demonstrate knowledge of chemical and biological systems, work within the scientific process, create and carry out experiments, and draw conclusions based on their results.

The Language Arts program focuses on developing communication skills across a variety of mediums, including spoken and written. Students will become proficient at reading comprehension and learn how to clearly and concisely express their ideas, cite evidence, and conduct research. Vocabulary growth, sentence fluency, and interpretation of plot, setting, theme, and character will all be covered. These strategies are taught so that students can use them in all their subjects.

Chalk Talk: Writing Persuasively: Avoiding Fallacies

One thing that is almost certain to weaken an argument is introducing fallacious reasoning. Fallacies occur when the writer or speaker makes a claim that does not necessarily make logical sense. These fallacies take many forms, from the slippery slope argument to the straw man. To avoid them, it is important to make sure that all parts of the argument logically follow one another. For example, if a writer tries to persuade its audience not to dine at a certain establishment because the one time they were there the steak they ordered was undercooked, they are committing a fallacy. The idea that one undercooked steak can represent the integrity of the entire restaurant is false. This is a hasty generalization, assuming that one experience can represent all of them. It does not logically follow that every single time a patron orders a steak, it will be undercooked.
