Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gatesville District Curriculum
Reading is one part of the Language Arts curriculum. Through this subject, students discover different genres that can be found. At first they learn the difference between fiction and non-fiction, and then as they progress they find, within these, that there are stories dealing with how-to, biographies, adventure, short stories and more. When they enter high school they are shown how to explore other subjects through the different genres. These include reading The Great Gatsby to talk about life in the 1920s and to discuss life in the Jazz Age.
The Science curriculum at Gatesville ISD shows students how to follow the scientific model and methods to explore the world around them. Through the years of their education students are presented the different parts of science through various hand-on activities in each year. They are also shown how to be responsible in science and they also build critical thinking and organizational skills through discussions, labs and field experiences.

Chalk Talk: Choosing Science Fair Projects
Science fair projects need to be topics that excite a student to help make it fun. When a child is interested in a topic they will not object to the research, or the creation of the project. To help a child choose a project, parents need to observe what interests a child the most. If a child enjoys mixing things together, they may want to try hypothesizing what would happen when different kitchen items are mixed. Or if they have an interest in energy they can experiment with different foods that make good energy sources. They may want to explore fingerprints of different members of a family to see what traits are inherited. Once a parent and child find what interests them, they can have fun narrowing the topic down to an activity that can be done and presented at the fair.
