Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gonzales District Curriculum
The Science curriculum is designed to introduce students to the world from a different perspective. Students begin by looking at the physical characteristics of item. They then build onto this by looking at the cycles that help to create the item being examined. From here the study of science continues on to look at the molecules and atoms that are included in every item on earth and in the environment. This includes how elements react with other elements. Through learning how to look at the world as scientists do, students also learn to look at other things in their lives closely.
The English Language Arts and Reading curriculum introduces students to a variety of types of texts and helps them develop analytic and critical reading skills for both fiction and non-fiction. Language study is an important component of the curriculum and grammar, vocabulary and conventions of the language are all taught. In conjunction with reading, students learn how to write in a variety of styles and begin to develop their voice. In high school, writing courses include Creative Writing, Journalism, and Research and Technical Writing.

Chalk Talk: Helping Students with Disabilities with Homework
Homework that is assigned by teachers serve different purposes such as to give additional learning time, build study and organizational skills and to help keep parents informed. Students that have disabilities may see it as a waste of time. Parents can help overcome this. First lines of communication need to be open between the parent and the teacher to make sure that assignments are clear and not too lengthy. Next, ask what the policies are for late, or missing work and if there are any adaptations available. At home parents can set up a homework area that is separated from distractions and is set up with the materials that may be needed. Finally, check a homework journal to make sure that all assignments have been completed and that the child knows where it is so they can make sure to turn it in. Helping a child with their work only takes a little bit of time, but can prove to be helpful to all involved.
