Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Winchester District Curriculum
The English language arts program at Winchester focuses on students becoming effective communicators in a complex 21st century global society, focusing on language, critical thinking, speaking, reading, writing, and listening. Novel study, independent reading, and exposure to various genres are also key parts of the program. Seventh grade students have many opportunities to practice the writing process and write in various genres, and in reading, there is an emphasis on nonfiction texts. Eighth graders move on to composing more creative, informational, analytical and persuasive texts.
In writing, students will have developed skills for compiling the information they need to formulate a strong paper with a thesis. By their senior year, high school students are taught the skills necessary for developing an extended argument in their papers and theses to most adequately prepare them for post-secondary life.
