Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Minnetrista District Curriculum
The elementary English language arts curriculum in Minnetrista includes a study of reading literature. Children acquire the skills needed to locate and understand the key ideas and details of a literary work. To support their analysis of these elements, students learn to find explicit evidence in the text. Learners explore various types of literature, including fables, folktales, stories, and myths, and compare and contrast the manner in which they are structured and written in different cultures.
Arts students in Minnetrista have the opportunity to study dance as part of the visual and performing arts curriculum. High school dance students analyze the social and cultural influences on dance genres from around the world. Learners develop an understanding of how one’s personal or historical context can impact the manner in which a dance is choreographed and performed. The various functions of dance are explored as well. Students learn about the role of dance as art, as a ritual, and as a cultural expression.

Chalk Talk: Why Spatial Thinking Is Important
As education becomes ever more technological and virtual, the benefits of working in the “real world” can sometimes get lost. Yet having the ability to think spatially is an important skill students still need to have. Spatial thinking and learning lays the foundation for higher-ordered thinking skills such as evaluation, analysis, and problem solving. Furthermore, spatial activities, such as playing with letter blocks, can enhance a young child’s linguistic abilities. There are also mathematical and engineering benefits. Students that play with “real world” toys, like Lincoln Logs, demonstrate an improved ability to envision and construct 3-D objects.
