Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Baker District Curriculum
In English and Language Arts, students learn to read, write, listen and speak in correct English. Students use reading material that includes both informational text and literature so that they are exposed to the type of reading they may encounter on the job. In writing students are encouraged to write creative assignments using examples from their own lives and to write research reports using research skills including the ability to read for evidence. English literacy standards are applied across all academic courses.
In Mathematics, students start learning the basics of computation, algebra, geometry, statistics, and measurement and continue through a progressively more difficult curriculum with students building on the skills they have learned. An emphasis is placed on persistence in solving math problems including knowing when to apply specific math tools and to apply math knowledge to solve new problems.

Chalk Talk: Leonardo Da Vinci Explored
Leonardo Da Vinci continues to be an historical figure that fascinates and amazes. At the Museum of Science in Boston website, students, teachers and parents can find a resource on Da Vinci that provides information on Da Vinci’s life, his paintings, his inventions, and his perspective in life. There is a wealth of information including an interesting look at Da Vinci’s use of mirror writing which he used as type of shorthand writing from right to left. It is theorized that he used this form of writing to keep his ideas and inventions from scrutiny by the Roman Catholic Church of the time and also because as a left-handed writer it was less messy. One can also find theories on why as a celebrated painter he only completed a few art works, or why as a pacifist he spend time trying to invent deadly weapons. The Museum’s website on Da Vinci provides a learning experience and a stepping off place for discussion and research.
