Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bacliff District Curriculum
The English Language Arts and Reading framework is aimed at developing strong critical reading, writing, and communication skills that students can use across disciplines. Reading standards emphasize the different skills students use to comprehend and analyze fiction and non-fiction texts and helps students recognize the intent or bias an author brings to a text. The writing standards complement the reading goals by emphasizing writing for different purposes such as persuasion, exposition, analysis, and creativity.
By high school, students are expected to analyze textual context, use analogies to make their point, and recognize thematic intent and the influence of mythic, classical and traditional literature. There is also a media literacy component that calls upon students to analyze how words, images, graphic influence interpretation. Research skills are also focused on, particularly in high school, so that students know how to locate information and evaluate its validity. They also learn how to properly cite works, create a bibliography, and use footnotes.

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: High School Social Graces
When thinking about high school teens, many people think of children that do not show manners. This does not need to be the case. Parents who have been showing the child manners from the time they were little may have an easier time than others but there are still things that can be done. First of all, parents need to model the behaviors they are looking for. It is normal for disagreements to arise, but it is important for teens to be able to show self-control and listening skills when they do occur, along with the ability to know when to walk away. Teens also take this time to begin applying for jobs, or colleges. Help them to realize the importance of the words “thank you” when interviewed or to leave good impressions with others. Teens also begin spending time with friends and others. When this involves a meal, parents should remind them what a good guest is. For example, they should be punctual, greet others nicely, respecting others property and asking permission before using others items.
