Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Windham District Curriculum
The Science curriculum focuses on earth, physical and life sciences. Students are expected to identify the differences between these three categories and become familiar with aspects of all three. In elementary school, students should be able to categorize information from these areas. For example, when learning about the earth sciences, students are expected to become comfortable with the rock cycle. Inquiry and investigation will be used to ensure student success, and a variety of experiments will be conducted. When students reach high school, they will continue to explore these concepts in more depth.
The English Language Arts curriculum focuses on four key areas. These areas are reading, writing, language and speaking/listening and all of them are given importance. Fluency and literacy is emphasized and students should be able to pull key concepts from literature and explain them in both the oral and written form. Students should also be familiar with a variety of research techniques and literary concepts.

Chalk Talk: Argumentation - The Rhetorical Triangle
When constructing a quality argument, it is important to keep in mind what Aristotle called the “rhetorical transaction,” or the rhetorical triangle. Each corner of the triangle has an express purpose and each must be kept in balance. In one corner, there is the author, and ethos. The author has to establish his or her ethos, or credibility, in discussing the topic. In another corner is the written or spoken word, or logos. This is the medium through which the author conveys his or her argument, and it should, at its heart, be rooted in fact. Finally, there are the recipients of the argument, the readers or the listeners. This final corner is represented by pathos, or emotions. It is not enough to throw a slew of facts in the audience’s direction. They must connect with the argument. By carefully balancing all three of these a strong, well-thought out argument can be constructed.
