Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Stillwater District Curriculum
Stillwater’s middle school social studies curriculum includes an examination of Minnesota and U.S. history. Students evaluate the history of indigenous peoples that inhabited the Minnesota area before white settlement. In particular, learners explore the Dakota and Anishinaabe tribes. The period of European contact in the 17th and 18th centuries is a particular point of emphasis. Students analyze the impact that contact had on native peoples, and explain the economic and social ties that were formed.
The arts curriculum in Stillwater introduces high school students to essential topics in the media arts. Learners analyze how social and cultural norms of the time period influence the expression of artists’ viewpoints in the media. Taking that into account, students create their own art that expresses their unique creativity. Students evaluate one another’s work in order to provide constructive feedback for improvement as well. Students also learn how to create an exhibit of their work for public viewing. As part of that endeavor, learners develop the ability to justify their artistic intent, as well as explain their intent to viewers.

Chalk Talk: Art and Academics Go Hand in Hand
Some parents may think of art class as an elective course that gives their child a break during the day to get creative and have fun. However, the arts are far more important than that. Recent studies show that participation in the arts have a significant, positive impact on a child’s academic performance. Improved reading and writing abilities come as a result of studying the arts, particularly reading readiness and word fluency. Children who participate in the arts are also better math students than their peers. Estimation and computational skills are much improved, as is the ability of children to calculate fractions. Studying the arts also facilitates the development of critical thinking skills. The ability to compare, critique and hypothesize are further benefits art students derive from their studies.
