Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Garner District Curriculum
The school districts in Garner have something for everyone beyond the core academics; at the secondary schools, that “something” could be in the Career and Technical Education (CTE) realm. Programs offered will cater to the needs, hopes, dreams, and abilities of students looking for employment, advanced education, or “real-life” applications. Some of these classes even offer college credit, career certifications, and dual enrollment, creating a “fast-track” to an associate’s degree or employment upon graduation.
Middle school students can take classes to help them explore information technologies, career awareness, life skills, and business technologies. At high school in 9th and 10th grades, introductory courses are taken; 11th and 12th grades provide specialized and advanced classes. Areas within the Career and Technical Education area include health occupations, marketing, technology, industry and trade, agriculture, family and consumer sciences, and business and information technology.

Chalk Talk: Decoding Essay Questions
The most-dreaded style of exam question—the essay—doesn’t have to be so dreadful. Look for key words/phrases that will clue you in to what the grader wants. “List” means to put on paper as many things as possible that fit the prompt, without going into a lot of detail about each. “Describe” is asking for lots of details about the topic. “Outline” means to give an overview of the whole topic—usually a beginning, middle, and end—but again, without nitty-gritty detail. “Compare and contrast” means to tell both the similarities AND the differences between topics. Using these to tips to help formulate your plan for writing an essay can save a lot of time and will demonstrate an awareness of how to write a successful essay.
