Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Williamsport District Curriculum
From the earliest grades in primary school, students are expected to develop their skills through reading basal and other appropriate texts, and progress is measured through close questioning and other activities. For example, students learning how to find the main ideas of a story will first read it with their teacher in concert, then independently. Students will then answer questions to test their comprehension by a variety of activities, including asking one another about the text.
Like the Literacy/Language Arts program, the Mathematics program focuses upon careful attention to scope and sequence in areas like algebra or geometry. Students learn a variety of different methods to use as tools when performing basic math operations. For example, students learning long division may use both the traditional method and the estimation method to arrive at the same answer. In high school, students may select from courses in algebra, geometry, probability and statistics, computer science, and applied math.
