    As many of you know, I am attending alternative certification training to become a 4-8 Generalist in Texas.

    I have been asking my kids alot of questions about school lately because I want to know what their teachers are doing in each one of their classes. (Mainly to steal ideas!):eek:

    My daughter told me that Texas History was "boring" and she hates that class. She says it is hard because we moved here two years ago and all the other kids know alot about Texas. She says she knows more about Japan because that is where we moved from.

    Is there any way I can find out what she is required to know? I already emailed the teacher but haven't heard back from her as of yet. I want to help her at home. She isn't failing the class, I just want to make it a little more interesting for her!

    Thank you for all of your help!:confused:

    Also, see if your school district posts the curriculum guides on their website. Ours posts them by subject and grade for each six weeks. I can PM you a link if you'd like.

    If there isn't a state association of teachers of social science (or history, or whatever), it would be surprising... and chances are pretty good that there will be curricula and even lesson plans on the site.
