Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bonner Springs District Curriculum
Critical thinking is taught across the curriculum, as are key literacy skills. Students are also taught problem solving skills which will benefit them later in life. In science classes, the focus is on real-world applications of learning and observation and experimentation with the physical world and such complex ideas as engineering problems. The process of trial and error which is a part of scientific investigation is taught and students are able to use this as a way to recognize the value of learning through mistakes.
In math classes, students learn the reasons why the math works, so that the formulas they memorize make sense. They learn to be precise in their problem-solving methods and how to choose the best method to solve a problem. They can then build on this understanding to have a solid comprehension of more complex mathematical concepts. In humanities classes, students read for meaning and author intent. They form opinions and gather evidence to support their ideas, producing well-reasoned arguments supported by facts rather than conjecture.

Chalk Talk: College Resumes
A college resume is a one-page list of extracurricular activities. The purpose of the resume is to present an easy to scan document that the college admissions committee can refer to in order to see a student’s involvement outside of the classroom. College resumes might include any number of extracurricular activities, such as sports, community service, and clubs. The resume might be daunting to write, but the truth is, a single page fills up pretty quickly. It’s a good idea to only include activities that highlight the most qualities for the student. For example, rather than just including clubs, include clubs the student led, or clubs that allowed the student to pursue volunteer work. Rather than just sports the student has been involved in, highlight sports the student won awards in or led or sports s/he was involved in long term.
