Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pontoon Beachn District Curriculum

In humanities classes, students learn how to think logically, how to support their opinions with facts and evidence, how to read critically, and how to communicate effectively in a variety of formats. They read challenging texts ranging from fiction to nonfiction, novels to poetry. They learn how to make meaning from these different types of texts. In history classes, they study the decisions and actions of the past to see how they influenced the present, and extrapolate ho the decisions and actions of the present might affect the future.

Students study how and why math works rather than just memorizing formulas. There is an increased focus on data analysis, using functions and creating models to solve math problems. Students gain a deeper understanding which will prepare them for later challenges. In science classes, they study the world around them and use rigorous approaches to experiment in real-world situations. They learn about the process of scientific inquiry including forming hypotheses, testing and observing ideas, and communicating their scientific findings.

Chalk Talk: Why Is the GPA So Important?

A student’s grade point average (GPA) is a record of how well the student did in his or her classes. That, along with the class breakdown on the transcript, help colleges determine how ready the student is for college-level work. The thinking is that these give a clear insight into how well the student will do because they show how well the student has done in the past. This seems reasonable, but some would argue otherwise. High school and college aren’t the same. Students have more autonomy in college, for example, and can take classes that they are more interested. The work is different, as well. Many students take college much more seriously than they do high school, which make a lot of difference.
