Literacy is an area of particular importance in the Summit Public Schools. In elementary school, students begin by developing the skills they need to read and write effectively at their grade level. Teachers work with students to learn different types of texts, identify basic themes and how to ask questions based upon what the have read. The middle school literacy curriculum focuses student learning on how to determine the meaning of words and phrases based on their context, the differences between genres such as dramas, comedies and tragedies, and how to make inferences based upon what they have read.

Chalk Talk: How to Help Your Child Study
Helping your child acquire effective study habits is much more difficult than it seems. Studying is much more than reading over notes or quizzing your child on vocabulary. If your child doesn’t employ the right strategies, they won’t retain anything that they read or that you quiz them on. For starters, encourage your child to find ways to apply what they are learning in school to real-life situations. Making connections between what is learned and what happens outside the classroom will help your child retain information much better. Another great method to help your child remember what he or she has learned is to help them get into the habit of studying each day, whether they have a test or not. Setting up a specific time to review readings and assignments will help keep the material fresh in your child’s mind and thus much easier for them to access when it comes time to demonstrate to their teacher what they have learned.
