Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bristol District Curriculum
Reading is the focus in all the grade-levels at Bristol Virginia Public Schools. This emphasis is demonstrated from the beginning when students begin to understand words and begin to read fluently and with expression. As they progress, students are aided with Accelerated Reader which is a reading program that reaches the students at their current levels and allows them to progress at a normal rate. Each year different aspects of reading are the focus, such as root words, reference skills, and recognizing point of view
Bristol Virginia Public School students also become scientists. This happens from the first years when they learn that science is all around them, it is in the air they breathe, the ground they walk on and the plants and animals all around. Throughout their education they learn to break the subject down as they begin to learn about geology, machines, cycles, adaptations and more. In high school, they are offered more in-depth classes in biology, chemistry and physiology. view all bristol tutors

Chalk Talk: Auditory Learners
So much is said about different learning styles and auditory learning is one of the styles. To see if a child is an auditory learner, check to see if the child enjoys telling stories, talks aloud as they are doing something new, following written directions is difficult and in writing. This child is social, asks questions, hums, and is noisy. These children do best in a classroom setting that has the traditional teaching techniques, where a teacher gives lessons aloud. To help at home, read to the child when he is small and allow them to read out loud while following the text with a finger. Explain new ideas or jobs aloud, a study group is good so she can hear their friends ideas. This child also would do well with a small tape or digital recorder, so they could record test questions. A parent or friend reading the questions aloud will also help.
