Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Topsfield District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum lays out standards in reading, writing and communicating that develop strong language skills and the ability to read, write and speak critically. Critical reading skills such as recognizing intent and bias, asking questions about the text, and formulating one’s own opinion are much emphasized. In writing, students are asked to write for various purposes such as to analyze a text, persuade an audience, explain a concept, or for creative purposes. They are expected to take a process approach to writing and also incorporate that way of approaching an assignment to their presentations.
The steps involved in presentations are planning what needs to be done and how the information will be found (the beginning), doing the actual research and using the information (the middle), and reviewing the finished product to make sure the student did everything he or she was supposed to (the end). Students are taught how to use library resources, and the proper ways to footnote and cite references. There will be times throughout their education when these skills will be needed to give presentations in all of their subjects.

Chalk Talk: Liquid Volume and Mass
Third graders will acquire an early learning of measurements of liquid volume and mass. They will be exposed to measurements of both the metric system and customary system (used in the U.S.). They may be given specific examples of items and be asked which unit of measurement it would make sense to measure that object with. For example, if measuring the amount of water in a bowl, it may be best to use cups—a unit of liquid volume. When finding the mass of a large piece of furniture, it would make most sense to measure it in pounds. Students must understand the amounts different units take up. For example, gallons represent a greater amount of liquids than pints, cups, and quarts. They should have an understanding of what everyday items and animals may weigh; for instance, a house cat might weigh about 12 pounds. They also should know how different measurements are represented in units; for example, volume is measured in cubic units.
