In case you did not know, NYS has adopted a new standardized, broad based curriculum called Common Core. For ELA it has divided the year’s reading concepts into modules. The first one we’re focused on is titled: reading closely and writing to learn. The first topic is called Journeys and Survival. And the first textbook story I have chosen is from the autobiographic memoir of the first woman to climb Mt. Everest, Stacy Allison.
I never sent it after researching the Everest movie’s film rating, but I hope the process assures you how serious I take our students’ education and more importantly, their deen and faith. The scholars of Islam say faith (imaan) increases and decreases according to deeds done. Inshaa Allah, we will wait for the dvd and watch an edited version. Thanks for reading.
