Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Warren District Curriculum
Warren School District uses the Common Core Standards in math and English language arts. The district incorporates various types of assessment, including continuous (daily) informal assessments, weekly or monthly formative assessments, unit tests, quarterly exams, and annual benchmark tests, to determine whether or not students have learned the material. Success in college and many careers requires effective written communication skills.
To this end, students respond to grade level-appropriate literature, write different types of prose, use open response action verbs, utilize the “Complete Sentence, Restate Question” strategy, create a portfolio with 20 different types of writing (including a cause and effect piece, journal, newspaper article, single-act play, poem, resume, short story, etc.), learn how to write business letters and resumes, write research papers that require them to follow steps for each grade level, cite their work using the MLA format, and use and evaluate various research sources.

Chalk Talk: When Is a Book Too Easy or Difficult?
Parents and children may have difficulty choosing books at the appropriate level of reading. Children may be tempted to select books that they can fly through or too challenging books in order to impress adults or read what their friends are reading. In the classroom, students should be taught at the middling instructional level, meaning that they can read the book with about 95 percent accuracy and can answer about 75 percent of related comprehension questions correctly. It is alright for students to read books at the independent level—99 percent word recognition and 90 percent comprehension—in their free time, but parents and teachers should work with them to read more challenging books at their instructional level so that they can progress to a higher reading level. If students are at the frustration level, they recognize 90 percent or fewer of the words and answer half or fewer of the comprehension questions with accuracy. This level is too difficult for students, so an easier book should be chosen in this case.
