Educating Our Parents: Understanding the High River District Curriculum
Students at the elementary schools take courses in communication arts, science, mathematics, social studies, physical education, health, music, art, and library/media information and technology. These courses are in line with what will be expected of students in middle and high school and are designed to lay the necessary foundation for success. In middle school, students begin to have more independence and options, allowing them to develop a sense of self before their high school studies.
The Language Arts curriculum focuses on students ability to analytically read, write and communicate. The impact of setting, character development, and sequencing in fiction is evaluated with regard to theme development. Many students hone these skills in the context of a Socratic seminar, in which they discuss textual elements with classmates and their teacher. Students also learn to conduct effective research and integrate ideas from multiple sources into a single, cohesive argument.

Chalk Talk: Classroom Bulletin Boards
Despite the influx of digital technology in classrooms, physical bulletin boards continue to be staples in elementary classrooms everywhere. Bulletin boards may seem inconsequential, but students will see them, so it is best to make them so that they impact student learning in some way and not just stand as a decoration. Bulletin boards should be switched up often — ideally at least every couple of weeks — or else they will become stale and boring. It’s beneficial to coordinate them with months, seasons, holidays, and educational celebrations. The subject matter that is conveyed should be varied; for instance, don’t always key in on literacy, but focus on math, social studies, science, etc. as well. It is best to try to implement what students are learning in class on the bulletin board in some way.
