Crystal City District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum at Crystal City Independent School District follows the guidelines of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). The TEKS lays out learning objectives from elementary through secondary school in all core academic subjects and electives with the goal of instilling a strong base of knowledge, the ability to think critically about each subject, and the necessary preparation for college and career success. The curriculum is supported by providing all students the resources needed to achieve the goals as well as additional programs for students who wish to go beyond the curricular offerings.
We currently cover the following Crystal City-area school district: Crystal City Independent School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Crystal City District Curriculum
Through the science curriculum, students learn to look at the details of a topi, in order to convey accurate and detailed information. They learn about the process of scientific investigation including forming hypotheses, designing and conducting laboratory experiments, and observing and taking notes about their scientific inquiry. Increasingly, scientific topics are taught in an interdisciplinary manner so that students can understand how different areas of science work together such as with engineering or biotechnology concepts.
The math curriculum at Crystal City Independent School District introduces students to a variety of problem-solving techniques. In the elementary grades, students use manipulatives to learn how to place objects in sets and then how to add, subtract, multiply and divide. They learn about shapes and measurements, and in middle school are introduced to more complex concepts like finding the diameter or radius of a circle. The introduction to formulas and methods of working with spatial relations is used further in the high school geometry curriculum.

Chalk Talk: Relaxation Ideas
When working on homework it is easy for children to become overwhelmed and stressed. When this occurs they should be encouraged to step away from their work for ten minutes and go for a walk. The fresh air will allow them to clear their thoughts and when they return they can face their work refreshed. Another idea is to breathe deeply for a few minutes. This also works in the classroom when a child becomes nervous before a test. Spending a few minutes petting or playing with a pet or reading a book are also ways to help the child to relax before they sit down to finish their work for the night. Finally, if the child has a hobby that they enjoy working on, allow them 10-15 minutes to work on this. The main idea is to take a break from what they are working on so they can come back to it afterwards with a new outlook.
