Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Minden District Curriculum
In English and Language Arts, students learn the core skills of reading, writing, listening, speaking, skills that are then built with progressively more difficult assignments. Reading closely and reading for evidence is emphasized for both literature and informational text. In writing students are encouraged to write using their own experiences for creative writing and to develop good research skills in writing reports.
In Mathematics students focus on basic math skills including computation, algebra, geometry, proportional reasoning, statistics, and measurement. Students are expected to learn when and how to use a math tool to solve specific math problems. They are also expected to apply what they have learned to more difficult math. The goal is for students to be math literate by the time they graduate high school with the knowledge they need to be successful in the workforce and college.

Chalk Talk: American Memory
Make history real for students with the American Memory website available through the Library of Congress. American Memory is a site that houses all sorts of copies of primary documents and historical items that allow visitors to view items such as George Washington’s Diaries page by page or early copies of American advertising, or documents from the women’s suffrage movement. The site includes documents from numerous areas of human experience including African American history, architecture, government, law, technology, war, religion, presidents, Native American history, the performing arts, and geography. History from a textbook can be dull and divorced from real life. Having access to letters, diaries, original photos, and historical maps can make history personal and real and can encourage students to continue learning about the history of their country on their own.
