Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Harrison Township District Curriculum
The curriculum for elementary students in the L’Anse Creuse Public Schools district focuses strongly on Language Arts skills. Students will begin studying this subject in Kindergarten by first learning that letters make sounds and those sounds can be combined to form words. Students will eventually learn to recognize common sight words and write basic sentences. As they become more fluent readers, students will learn the difference between fiction and non-fiction while exploring the different genres of literature.
The high school Language Arts curriculum takes what students have learned in both elementary and middle school and applies it to more complex assignments. Students will read and analyze classic novels by famous authors in order to learn about common themes in literature around the world. Skills that students will learn in these grades include foreshadowing and symbolism.

Chalk Talk: How to Choose a College Major
Choosing a college major is one of the biggest life decisions a student will ever make, therefore there are many aspects to take into consideration. First, students should look at possible careers they can have with any majors they are interested in. Careers are meant to be long term, so it is important to make sure it is something they can see themselves still being interested in twenty years down the road. Next, students need to research the requirements for the degree they would like to pursue and make sure they have the time and financial means to complete the degree. Some majors, especially in the medical field, require advanced degrees which can take up to eight years to complete. After students have looked into these aspects, they should also take into consideration their own strengths and weaknesses. While being a statistician sounds like a great job, a student will likely struggle through the degree program if they are not strong in Mathematics. By taking the time to fully investigate all of their options, students can be confident in the major they choose to pursue.
