Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Helena District Curriculum
In the teaching of history, as Alabama has a rich history in itself, the students are to promote competence in the areas of geography,
civics, economics, and history from local to world concepts. Citizenship is also stressed within the strands of this program. Being
literate in all courses, including history, gives the students opportunities to read non-fiction works that directly apply to the
historical concepts they are required to master. The goal of the Shelby County Schools is to have the students be informed decision
makers of society and grow to be the same type of adult in the way they view all aspects of history, both nationally and internationally.

- Future Educators Learn from Shadowing Teachers - The Future Educators of Alabama enjoyed learning from the teachers at Thompson School by shadowing the fourth and fifth grades. They went from class to class with them and watched how the instructors taught, how they managed the classrooms, and they participated in helping the students during lessons. They also had the opportunity to see the special education classrooms. They were able to work with many students and assist them with day to day happenings. The Teacher Shadowing opportunity is a great way for high school students to get a feel for what it is like being in a school from a teacher's perspective.

Chalk Talk: Reaching All Learners
Every school has a special education program that provides remediation and general instruction to those children that have an IEP, or Individual Education Plan. These students are instructed within the general education classroom and also in the special education classroom, depending on their needs. Some special education students need one-on-one supervision throughout the school day, while others are on a monitor status. The special education teacher is involved within the typical education classroom to work with the students and also is there to help other students in the classroom at times. A student may have a learning disability in reading or math (or both), a hearing or vision disability, autism spectrum disorder, be emotionally challenged, or another type of disability. Either way, Special Education students are to receive the best instruction possible at their level, and the regular education and special education teacher are to collaborate in meeting the needs of the children.
