Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Walker District Curriculum
The elementary writing curriculum is focused on students being able to write for different audiences and produce organized work. One type of writing students will create is opinion pieces where they must support their argument or belief with evidence. These pieces are usually written about a piece of literature they have just read. Another type of writing students will complete are narrative pieces in which students write stories that are either made up or about an actual event.
As students enter high school, the writing curriculum becomes much more advanced. Students will continue to write across the main genres of writing to include opinion, informative, and narrative pieces. These writings will become lengthier and more complex as students write on more intricate topics. Most of the writing students will do in high school will consist of research papers and literary analysis.

Chalk Talk: Fun Summer Research Projects
Summer is usually not the season for writing research papers. However, by making the work fun students can benefit from extra practice while enjoying a new activity. Younger students might enjoy a trip to the local zoo or aquarium where they can pick a favorite animal to write about. Some of the research could include interviews with the staff and pictures taken of the animal. If you do not have a zoo or aquarium nearby, consider doing a research project on a flower or plant you find at the park. Older students might like going to an amusement park and researching their favorite ride. Students can film the ride themselves as well as talking to the staff to do some of the research required. Some other great ideas include researching a local historical site, dream vacation locale, or favorite movie actor. Doing work over the summer doesn’t have to put a damper on the fun if you incorporate some enjoyable activities.
