Crockett District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum at Crockett Independent School District is based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). This allows the school to provide opportunities to reach all students and connects them with meaningful learning experiences. The core curriculum focuses on major academic subjects but provides objectives that are broadly written so that teachers can determine the best way to introduce the concepts or skills to their students. This promotes project-based and hands-on learning as teachers can find engaging ways to help students see how what they are learning about connects to uses in the real world.
We currently cover the following Crockett-area school district: Crockett Independent School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Crockett District Curriculum
United States History is a part of the Social Studies curriculum and students learn about history that puts modern day events into context. Students learn about the social and economic history of the United States and different time periods such as the Westward Expansion and Industrial Revolution. They also go farther back to the founding of the nation and learn about the time before the Constitution was adopted and how the Articles of Confederation gave rise to the Constitution we know now.
The English language arts and reading curriculum integrates reading and writing so that students have a wide range of texts that they can understand and produce. They learn different ways to analyze and make meaning of what they read and about how language is used effectively. Students should also develop different writing styles based upon the audience, task, or purpose of their project. Independent students will build a strong content knowledge that they can use to both comprehend and critique texts further reinforcing the reading and writing.

Chalk Talk: Grade Point Average
The Grade Point Average (GPA) is an average of scores received by a student in high school classes. There are many different scales used to present this. Some schools “Weight” scores, meaning they give most credit for honors or Advanced Placement (AP) classes, though this doesn’t really accomplish much once you take into account the fact that it has been weighted. Some use a 100 point scale, some use a 4.0 scale, a 6.0 scale, or other variations, some even use letter grades. There can be a lot of variation between these—an A could mean a 93-96 on a 100 point scale, or a 4.0, but a 98 also means a 4.0, even though that’s several points different. It’s important to take into account that whatever scale a high school uses, a college will often change to fit its own scale.
