Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wauwatosa District Curriculum
The Wauwatosa School District recently implemented a new program called Grading for Learning. The Grading for Learning program is designed to more effectively assess student course work. The new initiatives give students more opportunities for graded material, but does not weigh homework as highly or consider extra credit work as part of their overall course grade.
Primary education English language arts covers the five areas essential for English language mastery. Reading is first on the list and elementary students work on literature and informative pieces after they’ve mastered basic reading. Writing is also stressed in the district and this gives students an opportunity to practice grammar and mechanics. It is important for elementary students to learn the value of good speaking and listening skills, both of which are taught in the primary language arts program. In addition, students are exposed to the power of language as a whole and when it is appropriate to use different types of language conventions.

Chalk Talk: Reading with Phonics
When it comes to teaching reading, two choices are available. Beginners can learn to sight read, or they can learn phonetically. Sight reading teaching students to memorize what words look like with the word the say. T-H-E says “the,” for example. Phonics introduces students to the sounds of each letter, then blends the sounds together to form words. Both options have their merits, but reading with phonics is usually accepted by the educational community as the better way to teach reading. Over 80 percent of English words can be read phonetically. Students who master phonics are set up to be better readers. The downfall of sight reading is that if a student comes across a word he hasn’t memorized, he will struggle to decipher what the word says. Reading with phonics solves this problems by teaching him how to sound out new words in order to read what they say. Reading with phonics is a great way to help young readers learn to read faster, better, and with more comprehension.
