Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fort Hood District Curriculum
The Social Studies curriculum covers many topics. One topic consists of the history of the world. In the elementary and middle school years, students touched on the topics of other countries and the histories of ancient civilization. When they are in high school, World History is explored more deeply. They learn the causes of various wars and how governments use propaganda to support their causes. To go along with this, students may study and produce a propaganda poster to present to the class. The students look at changes, and their influences, that took place throughout history.
Geometry is a part of the mathematics curriculum at Fort Hood Schools. This begins by teaching children the characteristics of basic shapes. Soon they learn about angles, perimeter and area. For high school students, geometry studies include the areas of right triangles, the Pythagorean Theorem and even pre-trigonometry. Students also learn how to measure dimensions and the practical uses of their geometry skills in areas such as art and design.

Chalk Talk: Social-Emotional Learning
Children learn how to read and write while in school, but some do not know how to develop social skills that they need for day-to-day learning. Social-Emotional Learning includes teaching children about behavior, discipline, safety and scholastic skills. Its purpose is to help children learn empathy, perspective and how to form good relationships and make good decisions. These lessons helps children learn how to work together which can also help them improve academically. It also extends beyond the classroom and helps them as they develop relationships with peers and teachers, as they look for first jobs, join clubs or sports teams, or plan for leaving home for college. Transitional times are also important milestones in social emotional learning, and you can discuss your memories of those periods in your life. Children will learn how to cope with the changes in their social and emotional life best through open communication about what is going on in their life.
