Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Allen Park District Curriculum
Elementary schools use the 6+1 Traits of Writing curriculum as part of their Language Arts program. This curriculum was developed by teachers and curriculum experts and acts as a framework for writing throughout the grade levels. The traits students will study and practice include ideas, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency, conventions, and presentation. As students work through each trait, they will be assessed using a standard rubric.
The high school Language Arts curriculum is focused on units of study for freshmen and sophomores, while juniors and seniors can choose courses more tailored to their interests. Freshmen study units that are meant to prepare them for more rigorous work in the upper grades. Units include research, novels, and comparing and contrasting literary works. Sophomores study units based on novels and genres such as Huck Finn and Gothic Literature.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Longer Hours and Shorter Weeks
A new trend taking place in American schools is changing the way we look at a typical school week. For decades, students have attended school Monday through Friday for seven hours each day. Some research has shown that students are more productive and successful when the school week is shortened to four days and the school day is extended to ten hours. When you look at a typical seven hour school day and begin to dissect it, you find out that students typically spend less than four of those hours on actual school work. You have to account for things such as lunch, recess, P.E., bathroom breaks, and travel between classes. The research has also shown that teachers and students feel rushed to cram everything into each day and often valuable remediation time is sacrificed. As more research is done on the subject, schools may find that they need to shift their calendars in order to be successful and effective.
