The Magnet School
Read the dialog below.
A - Hi Lucy! Do you like your school?
B - Hi Carl. Yeah! It's great. It's a magnet school.
A - A magnet school? What's that?
B - It's a special school that teaches different stuff, not just math, reading, and boring things like that.
A - What does your school teach?
B - My school is bilingual. I spend half the day with an English-speaking teacher and half with a Spanish-speaking teacher. For example, this month I'm learning science and math in English but social studies and art in Spanish. Next month I switch. I learn science and math from the Spanish-speaking teacher and social studies and art from the English-speaking teacher.
A - Wow! Isn't that confusing?
B - No. I started in the school when I was in kindergarten. When I started I only could speak English. Now I'm totally bilingual.
A - That's cool. I heard about a kid in another magnet school that specialized in the arts. He had a lot of theater classes and art classes and stuff like that.
B - Different magnet schools specialize in different things.
