Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Scranton District Curriculum
The curriculum guidelines have been developed to detail what skills and concepts students need to master in order to achieve Pennsylvania State Standards. In Language Arts, students learn how to find main ideas by Grade 4 in order to research and write simple reports. By high school, students can understand and debate complex arguments.
Students in Math learn what, how, and why they use numbers, measurement, objects, and equations in a spiral curriculum developed from best practices in education theory. Simple counting and arithmetic learned in the early grades is revisited during courses in algebra, probability, and statistics, and expanded upon.
Students in Science also study technology, the environment, and ecology in ways that use the resources around them, whether web-based sites and the night sky, or the effects of pollution on local plants and animals. Students learn about parts of the body and how they work in Grade 5, and expand their study in biology courses in high school.

Every year since 2011, they have been asked to sew a giant hat to cover the coal boulder that sits outside town. Many students worked together to design and make the large tent from donated materials and practice their sewing skills.

Chalk Talk: Reading and Math are Everywhere
Parents can help students use the skills they are learning in school by pointing out ways that reading and math are used in everyday life. For example, students can use newspaper articles about their favorite sports teams to follow averages, sports statistics, and words describing players and matches. "The Bulldogs Crush the Falcons, 37-10" is more vivid than, "The Bulldogs won the game with the Falcons by 27 points" although both are accurate and provide the same information. A teaching moment can be found in all manner of interests.
