Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Walterboro District Curriculum
The English Language Arts curriculum has standards in reading literary and informational texts, writing, and communication that progress from elementary to high school. By the time students start high school, they are expected to be able to develop relevant questions that they are interested in studying more about, propose and support explanations for why events occur in a text or what the author’s purpose is, and relate the meaning of a text to themselves and the world around them. These reading skills help them unlock meaning in texts they read outside the classroom.
The Math curriculum has a number of overarching objectives including that students can make sense of a problem and work through solving it, perform mathematical reasoning, be able to justify and critique their reasoning, connect mathematical ideas to the real world, use mathematical tools, identify structures and patterns, and communicate mathematical thought. These overarching problem-soling skills are not gained in one year, but instead are a part of the framework that is unfolded for students during their math education.

She taught her chorus students, who were required to audition, about different musical instruments and vocal ranges.

Chalk Talk: Children’s Literature Spotlight: “Thank You, Mr. Falker”
This picture book that is designed for readers in the upper elementary grades is essentially an autobiography of author and illustrator Patricia Polacco’s life when she was a child. Before becoming a well-known children’s author, Polacco was once a girl who could not read and was overlooked by teacher after teacher until she met Mr. Falker, who believed she could learn to read and actually respected her talent as an artist. This book is a must-read for everyone, as it tackles such themes as bullying, respecting the strengths and weaknesses of everyone, the powerfulness of good teachers, learning disabilities, or learning to read. “Thank You, Mr. Falker” is a truly inspirational story that reminds readers to have faith and that it is never too late for one to learn.
