Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bladensburg District Curriculum
Though Common Core State Standards have required a shift in the way students are educated, Prince George’s has taken to heart the true intent of the standards. By allowing students to think more critically, be a part of their own learning, and work collaboratively, they have increased the expectations of their students. Students will be supported during the implementation of the new standards to achieve the increase in rigor established by the curriculum.
Students are challenged daily, and instruction is integrated for a cross-curricular approach. For instance, in elementary classrooms, you might find first graders reading the fairytale “The Big Bad Wolf.” After reading, students might be asked to replicate the housing structures from the story (house of straw, house of sticks, and house of bricks). By blowing on the structures (perhaps with a hair dryer), students can determine which structure is the stablest. Skills that can be assessed using this type of activity include problem solving and engineering.

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: Tips for Studying
Has your child ever come home, panicked, because he or she forgot to study for a big test? Or, perhaps your child did study, but didn't receive the grade he or she thought? The problem may stem from how your child approaches studying. Many students “study,” but they don't realize that their methods are often not productive. The tips below offer some strategies for studying that may produce better results. Focus on the information you know will be assessed. If you are studying for history, for example, and you know you will only be testing over chapter three, then you should only study chapter three. It is also a good idea to pinpoint exactly what the last test assessed, and study any new information learned since then. Use the resources you have. If you have any notes, homework assignments, quizzes, or especially a study guide, use them. The information on these assignments is a good indication of what will be on the test. Using what you have can often narrow down the sheer amount of material that you must absorb. Begin early Teachers generally announce test dates well in advance. If you know you will have a test next week, divide up your study material over several days.
