  • students will write a minimum of one research paper and develop one research-based project each year
Assessment is a crucial component of the Reading - ELA curriculum. Periodic assessments are administered and are intended to measure student progress during units of study.
For the middle grades language arts courses, the primary resource material is the Holt, Rinehart, and Winston series, Elements of Literature.

CGMS Mathpage

Mathematics is the study of patterns and relationships in number and in space. It serves as the underpinning for solving problems, posing conjectures, translating thoughts into symbols, and creating models. Mathematics is a thought process that touches all fields of study. It is the universal language that people use to solve problems and connect their understanding of order in the world.
 A high quality education in mathematics is vital to all students. Such education contributes considerably to their intellectual development. At the same time, it enables them, not only to choose from a wide range of career paths, but also to compete successfully in today's global economy.
Cedar Grove Middle believe:
  • Mathematics can and must be learned by all students.
  • Students must learn mathematics with conceptual understanding to enable them to solve the new kinds of problems the rapidly changing world presents.
  • Formative assessment should be an ongoing classroom activity that supports the learning of mathematics and informs instruction.
  • Effective teaching requires that the teacher knows and understands mathematics, knows and understands the developmental stages of learners, and knows and employs a variety of instructional strategies.
  • Technology should be used in mathematics education as a teaching tool to enhance student learning, but not as a replacement for basic understanding and computational fluency.
