Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rockwall District Curriculum
Students begin their science education at Rockwall Schools by studying the Earth and the materials that make up this planet. They begin their study by looking at rocks, soil and water. Within a few years they study it more closely as they see how water, wind and ice slowly change the surface of Earth. By the time they graduate they will have had man lab activities and hands on opportunities to explore geology and earth science even more. This exploration of the Earth will raise an excitement in many of the students as they go out to their world.
The reading curriculum at Rockwall schools aims at connecting home and school. Each week parents are given a set of guiding questions to ask the students to see if there are areas that can be worked on at home. These are also used as a way of informing the parents of materials and topics being covered in class. Along with these questions, students learn how to summarize text they are reading into a form that is easy to share both orally and in written form.

Chalk Talk: After School Questions
Many parents are faced with blank faces or shrugs when they ask their children "How was school today?" Perhaps by making the question more specific they can elicit more details. Another way to find out information about the school day is to ask "What did you learn in math class today? Parents may still receive shrugs but by wording the question in a more specific direction it opens up the possibility of the child answering. If a child is doing poorly in a certain subject, rather than asking "Why are you failing science?" ask the child if the subject if too hard or too easy. This then allows the doorway to questions as to what they do not understand, or if the parent and child can research together. Most of all, questions such as these allows the opportunity for a two-way conversation, rather than being shut down by a shrug.
