Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Tyngsborough District Curriculum
A large part of the English language arts standards involves measuring text complexity, and the district goes into great detail breaking this down. This involves three factors: qualitatively evaluating texts through levels of meaning, structure, and language and quantitatively evaluating selections based on readability measures and scores; and matching readers to texts based on reader variables such as motivation and experiences and task variables such as purpose and the complexity of the task.
The range of text types includes three types of literature—stories, drama, and poetry—as well as informational texts. At the elementary level, students may read stories such as children’s adventure stories, fables, and folktales; dramas with staged dialogue; poetry such as nursery rhymes and limericks; and informational texts that include literary nonfiction as well as historical, scientific, and technical texts (biographies, digital sources, information displayed in graphs, etc.). At the secondary level, students may read stories such as historical fiction, mysteries, science fiction, and graphic novels.

Chalk Talk: Transitioning to College
The transition from high school to college is a very difficult one. Although students are excited about their newfound freedom and independence, they will have to be much more self-responsible and recognize that there will be no more "hand-holding" for them to be successful. They will have many decisions to make, such as whether or not to attend class, how much they need to study, whether or not to attend that campus party, etc. Generally, they will not have the opportunity to reverse poor grades they earn. Students will have to take solid notes and use their own study strategies, as they typically won't get study guides. They will need to manage their time and decide how much to devote to each class, test, and paper as well as how far in advance to start preparing for exams and assignments. They will be responsible for seeking help from their professors if they need it; they will not be approached by their instructors. It is essential that college students know how to write well and read actively and critically
