Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grand Blanc Township District Curriculum
A stand out in Grand Blanc Community Schools is its belief in project-based learning, which requires students to show mastery of objectives by completing a project throughout the learning process. Students form a question at the beginning of a learning unit and research throughout the unit to find the answer. The projects culminate in a multimedia presentation as well as a written assessment.
GBCS also use learning targets in their lesson plans and assessments. Learning targets are objectives that have been broken down into a more student-friendly language. These targets are an integral part of the lesson plans and are posted for students to see. This allows the students to take ownership of their education while providing explicit evidence of the expectations for each particular objective. As students get older, Grand Blanc Community Schools offer several programs designed to let students get a head start on their career. Career Cruising is a software program that allows students to explore different careers and their requirements.

Chalk Talk: The Transition to Middle School
Graduating from elementary school can be an exciting and scary time in a young child’s life, but there are things you can do to help them transition successfully. Elementary school is all about guiding students along the way and showing them exactly how to do things. However, starting in middle school students are taught to be independent learners and a lot of that guidance goes by the wayside. One of the ways you can help your student transition is to start giving them academic independence early on. Have them complete their work themselves and then review it with them in order to help them build confidence. Involve your child in community programs at the middle school so that he or she will know some familiar faces on the first day of school. Another great idea is to take a tour of the middle school so that your student knows exactly where to go on that first day as well. These steps can help make your child’s transition to middle school a great experience.
