Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Trumann District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum is designed to support learning and communication in all subject areas. Students read an even amount of fiction and non-fiction and develop different comprehension skills to analyze various genres. They write in response to the texts they read as well as create written work generated by their own ideas. Students further are expected to develop research skills and the ability to evaluate the quality of academic resources and to properly cite research they use in their own essays and projects.
The district will soon begin using the PARCC assessment as a replacement for the current Arkansas standardized test. PARCC helps better prepare students for their future after they graduate. This year, Trumann students are taking the PARCC assessment as a field test; the information that administrators receive from students’ assessment results will help them make the appropriate and necessary adjustments to the test so that it will be ready when scores count.

Chalk Talk: Making Spelling Matter
Think back to your elementary school days. Surely, you can remember your teacher handing you a list of 20 or so spelling words each week. You likely had assignments throughout the week that required you to copy each word five times and use each word in a sentence. Of course, all of this culminated into the end-of-the-week spelling test for which you had to memorize the spellings of all the words. It didn’t matter that the words had no connection to your life in any way—either inside or outside of school—or that you may not see the words again for a long time. You just had to remember those 20 words for that week! This practice is still widely used today, but is it the best way for children to learn how to spell? Furthermore, there is sometimes such a great emphasis placed on spelling that the content of young children’s writing is downplayed because they misspelled a few words. It is problematic that elementary students often spend more time memorizing spelling words than they do writing. In reality, they likely can become better spellers through regular writing practice. During proofreading sessions, students can learn the correct spellings of words that matter to them.
