Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Winooski District Curriculum
The Winooski School District follows the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), a set of standards that establishes universal benchmarks for core subjects to be adopted by all participating schools nationwide. Students are tested using the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP). Winooski teachers work with assessment materials to tailor the curriculum to cover tasks and skills that will be needed for success on the NECAP assessments.
The reading curriculum, based on the Anchor Standards for English set by the CCSS, covers the foundation skills of fluency, word recognition, phonics, and interpreting the craft and structure of informational texts for lower grades and response to text and interaction with poetry, narratives, and reports for higher grades.

Chalk Talk: Asking Questions
There are many reasons why students refrain from asking questions in class. Some are shy and do not want to draw attention to themselves by asking a question. Others feel embarrassed, thinking that they should probably already know the answer. However, if you are confused about a concept or curious to know more, do not hesitate to ask. The whole point of the class is for you to learn, so never feel bad about whatever questions you need to ask to make sure you understand. In fact, if you are confused, likely there are others in the class are wondering the same thing. Most teachers appreciate questions because they make the class livelier and demonstrate that students are eager to learn. If your teachers provide an email address, use it to clarify homework instructions or to pose questions. By viewing questions as part of the learning process and asking them as often as necessary, you can be sure to receive the full benefit of your education.
