Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Orange City District Curriculum
MOC-Floyd Valley High offers a variety of courses in the core content areas, agriculture, business education, family and consumer science, and fine arts. The district has partnered with Northwest Iowa Community College to offer a General Business program of study. Students take courses in such areas as computer applications, accounting, and marketing. Examples of career paths students could end up following with this program of study are entrepreneurs, corporate trainers, marketing analysts, auditors, and sales representatives.
Recently, the middle school students have learned about such content as the properties of the phases of matter, Ancient Mesopotamia, pre-algebra concepts such as equations. The goal is to teach students how to study a topic in a more in-depth manner, conduct research, and use analytic skills to understand how this knowledge fits into the big picture. Students also are able to recognize their strengths and interests, which will assist them in choosing a course of study in high school where more academic options and electives are available.

Chalk Talk: Resume Tips for High School Students
On resumes, teens may list academic achievements, including their GPA, and extracurricular activities they participate in; they should be sure to make mention of any leadership roles they have in organizations or on athletic teams. An important final part of the resume is for candidates to list the special skills they have, which can be difficult for teens to do. Some general skills that teens possess that can be listed are creativity and ability to think of new ideas, organizational skills, technology skills (such as working with Microsoft Office or designing websites), leadership skills, effective writing and speaking abilities, etc. Teens can also choose specific skills that cater to the job(s) they are applying for. It is important to be honest about one’s abilities, accomplishments, and experience on the resume.
