Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Towson District Curriculum
Students studying physical education in Towson do so in a number of realms. In the motor learning strand, students devise practice plans that allow them to build skills necessary for participation in games. This includes the development of both open and closed skills. Learners also explore biomechanical principles that underlie muscle performance and production of force. Students learn about various muscle groups, analyze how the size of a muscle impacts the amount of force produced, and investigate how the distance a muscle must stretch impacts force as well.
Towson’s fine arts curriculum gives elementary and middle school students the opportunity to learn dance. Students learn about the various elements of dance and how those elements are used to communicate meaning to an audience. As part of that, students explore various genres of dance and interpret ideas and concepts unique to each form of dance. Kinesthetic awareness is also studied. Students learn about alignment, flexibility, endurance, balance, and timing as part of their pursuit of the technical skills required to perform dance moves in a fluid, proficient, and safe manner. view all Towson tutors

Chalk Talk: The Value of Music Education
There are many benefits that students derive from studying music. The discipline required to practice and commit oneself to studying music means music students manage their time effectively and set appropriate, attainable goals. Students who study music also demonstrate improved academic abilities, including better scores on standardized measures of math. Research shows that these students scored 27 percent higher on tests involving proportional math and fractions. Math proficiency in general is higher for students that study music, particularly in the middle school and high school years. SAT scores are higher for students that engage in musical performance as well, on both verbal and mathematical measures. Music students also demonstrate better behavior in school, with far fewer discipline referrals than their peers.
