Inkster District and Curriculum
Inkster, Michigan is served by four school districts that include Westwood Community School District, Wayne-Westland Community Schools, Romulus Community Schools, and Taylor School District. The Wayne-Westland Community School District is the largest of the four with thirteen elementary schools, two middle schools, two high schools, and a career/tech building. Over 12,000 students each year are taught a rigorous curriculum by highly-qualified teachers who are all certified in their teaching areas.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Inkster District Curriculum
The elementary curriculum is divided into the four core subjects that include Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Instruction in Language Arts emphasizes the basic reading and writing skills that are necessary to be a successful student. The ability to read text and comprehend what has been read is the ultimate goal in these grade levels. Teachers instruct students on how to use a variety of reading strategies and skills to reach mastery of these standards.
As students move onto more complex text in middle school and high school, the strategies they will use will become more complex as well. The three main reading strategies used in these grades are inferring, determining importance, and summarizing. The inferring strategy is used when students must determine a detail about the text based on the information or clues given. For example, a student might infer that the character is from England because of his use of British slang and differences in word spelling.

Chalk Talk: How to Choose an Elective
Students today are offered a wide variety of electives to choose from in both middle school and high school. But, how does one know which of those choices is the best for them? There are several factors that go into choosing the right elective including career interests, time management skills, and past experiences. One of the first things a student should consider is their future career plans and interests. Choosing an elective that has to do with these interests can greatly benefit a student in the long run by giving them valuable hands-on experiences. Another aspect to consider is a student’s time management skills. Some electives are more complex and involve rigorous independent work. If a student already has a job or many extracurricular activities, a very time consuming elective may not be the best choice. One last determining factor is a student’s past experiences with the elective’s topic. Students who have had difficulty with the type of work or subject matter taught in the elective may want to choose a more enjoyable option. Taking the time to choose electives wisely can lead to a successful and fun school year.
