Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Clear Lake District Curriculum
The elementary curriculum introduces students to the fundamentals of literacy and math, and gives them time to explore the sciences and develop their knowledge of American history and their current society. One major shift in the literacy curriculum is an increased emphasis on non-fiction, informational texts. The goal is for students to be able to read history and science texts with proficiency and be able to use the appropriate comprehensive and critical reading strategies on different types of texts.
The high school provides advanced and career-focused courses that help students connect to their post-secondary goals. Community service and project based work are also emphasized. Each high school teacher has a website that gives more information about the curriculum, course, and classroom activities. Many of these pages are organized by the various courses each teacher teaches (e.g.: algebra, geometry) and includes information such as homework assignments, instructional videos, links to web resources, study guides, and syllabi.

The district uses the Iowa Core Curriculum which is comprehensive in its scope and sequence for learning. It details the necessary skills and knowledge that students should attain in order to be proficient in the subject, and specifies types of critical thinking that they should be doing. Other curricular priorities include financial literacy, scientific literacy, strong interpersonal skills, the ability to learn independently, and the ability to participate in group endeavors both in and outside the classroom.

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: Humorous Children’s Books
Give these books to children to give them a laugh.

His mom tells him that some days are just like that. “Animal Crackers Fly the Coop”, written and illustrated by Kevin O’Malley, is full of constant jokes, humor, and fun plays on words. Hen, Dog, Cat, and Cow escape from their owners and make their dream of having a comedy club come true. In “An Extraordinary Egg” written and illustrated by Leo Lionni, three frogs find an egg and think that it is a chicken egg. It turns out that what comes out of the egg is not a chicken but an alligator. However, the frogs still think that it is a chicken. Even when they find the mother, who asks for her baby alligator, they laugh at the prospect of the creature being called an alligator.
