Rochester District and Curriculum
The Rochester Community Schools curriculum is based on the educational expectations set by the Michigan Department of Education. The schools follow the expectations in the Michigan Merit Curriculum, which provides a series of objectives for students to meet in each subject at each grade level. In high school, many of the course options available to students allow them to pursue individual learning goals that also help connect them with real career opportunities for their future. All courses support the college and career readiness goals that include learning how to collaborate, locate and evaluate and information, and communicate their ideas.
We currently cover the following Rochester-area school district: Rochester Community Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rochester District Curriculum
History includes the study of the world and its events. In Rochester schools the students study events, or time periods, that have led countries to the place they are today. Teachers use a variety of material to help keep the study of history alive for the students. For example, the students may make a video of life in a medieval manor, they may create a song to teach others about the Bill of Rights. These activities help the students to look at life around them with an eye for the history that has brought it to where it is today.
The English curriculum at Rochester schools includes skills in reading, writing, listening and sharing orally. At times these sections work together so the students and teachers can see how advancement has been made overall. While studying classic works, the students may be asked to read a book, then create a poster or a presentation on one specific section of the book. This presentation can be made in the form of a speech or even a debate where others will need to listen to important points. There will be times throughout their lives when these skills will be needed to give presentations in their careers or in their education.

Chalk Talk: Astronomy With The Family
Astronomy is a part of each child's science curriculum. Some children take to the subject easily, while other do not. To help a child create an interest in, and succeed, in this area, parents can take a part in his area of education. This does not mean parents need to be experts, but when outside at night they can look up and begin a conversation with the child. By seeing what areas of astronomy excite the child, the parent can help lead them along. They can ask if the child can point out the Northern Star, of if they can share what phase the moon is in and what phase happens next. Parents can also talk about how the light from the stars that are being seen traveled light years. By opening up these areas of interest, a parent may be opening a new enthusiasm for the child.
