Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Plant City District Curriculum
Students take both general and specific courses in physical, earth, and life science. Each course will utilize technology and hands-on activities to supplement classroom learning. In elementary school, students begin by learning how to formulate questions and investigate using the scientific method. Students also work on collecting, recording and analyzing data within the realm of conducting experiments. Methods of presenting this information, including in graphic form, are presented to students as well. The knowledge obtained in these grade levels will be further developed in middle and high school when students have many opportunities to conduct experiments of their own.
Potential careers can be explored through health science courses in middle and high school as well. Some of the occupations explored include the pharmacy, physical therapy, and dental fields. Advanced Placement and dual credit courses in many areas, including art, world languages, and business, are also available to help prepare students for college.

Chalk Talk: How to Increase Your Vocabulary
A large vocabulary is essential when it comes to communicating effectively, whether it’s through writing or speaking. Although many courses in school aim to increase students’ vocabulary, it may be helpful to augment what you learn there with activities designed to do the same at home. The number one way to learn new words is to read, read, read. Try to choose books that deal with subjects that are unfamiliar to you or slightly more advanced than you would usually pick. Look up words you don’t know in a dictionary or thesaurus. If you don’t have extra time on your hands, try using a word-a-day calendar or website. If you’re feeling extra ambitious, make your own list. You can also play word games, such as Scrabble or crossword puzzles. One tactic that may also be particularly helpful is to learn about the roots of words. Knowing prefixes, roots, and suffixes can help you decipher the meaning of many difficult or confusing terms that you may run across. Remember to write these new vocabulary words down and use them in writing exercises or conversations so that you don’t forget them!
