Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sharon District Curriculum
Sharon Public Schools have developed a curriculum map for each elementary grade level for English language arts. Included for each unit are the essential questions that provide the basis for instruction and learning, the content that is taught, the relevant standards, the skills that students are expected to develop, how students will be assessed, the specific learning activities and strategies that are used, and the resources that are needed. The middle and high school curriculum expands the elementary curriculum to focus on prior learning, and adding more elective options.
Curriculum maps have been updated to include Literacy Across the Content Areas—as mandated by the Common Core Standards—explaining the literacy skills that will be integrated into social studies and science. The elementary math website includes parent resources, the district’s approach to problem solving, Sharon’s core math standards, and educational websites.

Chalk Talk: What Do Third Graders Learn in ELA?
According to the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts, third grade students must show deeper textual evidence in their responses to texts. In answering questions about selections they read, they need to explicitly refer to the text as the main part of their answers. They should be able to determine the central message, or moral, explaining how it is conveyed through key details. They will also have to describe how characters’ feelings, motivations, and actions factored in to the events of the story. In terms of craft and structure, third graders will have to differentiate between literal and nonliteral language in texts and their own point-of-view and that of the author’s. They will make deeper connections to illustrations and words in stories, describing how illustrations show meaning (i.e.: setting the mood, etc.). In nonfiction texts, they must define grade-appropriate general and domain-specific academic terms and phrases. When it comes to foundational skills, students should know the meanings of common prefixes and suffixes, be able to decode words with common Latin suffixes, and read grade-appropriate words spelled irregularly.
