Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bothell District Curriculum
Once students enter middle school, the curriculum begins to shift from skills-based curriculum to content-based curriculum. The students take English Language Arts, Math, and Science in their years of middle school where they begin to learn how the skills learned in elementary school are applied in different situations. The district also has a Junior High Challenge Program in which advanced students are able to take accelerated English, Math and Science classes. One of the goals of the program is to have more eighth grade students succeed with the Algebra 1 curriculum.
Writing in each of these grade levels mirrors the reading requirements in that ninth graders focus on narratives and literary analysis, while tenth graders focus on expository and persuasive writing. Eleventh grade is focused on the range of American Literature, and in student’s senior year there are Honors, AP and other options for their English Language Arts course. The district also offers elective classes including Creative Writing, Journalistic Writing, High School Reading and Editor Practicum.

Chalk Talk: Time Management
When a child has other things they want to do instead of going to school, or doing homework, time is not of importance. Parents can help them realize its importance by putting a few ideas into action. First, when giving a child a time period to complete something give them a timer to help them see how much time they have until their time is up. Another idea, especially for young children, is to compare a time period to the length of a television show. Another reminder for children is to place events or appointments on a calendar, perhaps labeling each person’s event in a different color. Finally, if a child is given a certain amount of time to complete something and they have not finished the project, as a parent it is important to let the child take responsibility. It is difficult not to nag or to give excuses, but by letting them deal with the consequences they may become motivated in the future.
