Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dalton District Curriculum
In all subjects, an instructional unit contains three stages. The first stage, which revolves around the desired student results, begins with the established learning goals that specify the understandings and skills students are expected to gain by the end of the unit; these goals may start with: "Students will be able to independently use their learning to..." The next section of Stage 1 ensures that the learning is meaningful for students; teachers have to establish the understandings students must gain ("Students will understand that...") based on the essential questions that guide the unit.
The second stage of the instructional unit is centered on evidence that students met the established goals and essential understandings; teachers must determine how students will be assessed, which performance tasks students will engage in, and other evidence that may demonstrate student learning. Finally, Stage 3 focuses on the learning plan and calls for teachers to summarize the key learning events and instruction. Of course, expectations become more advanced at each grade level.

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: The Importance of Physical Education
The physical education curriculum seeks to instill in each student the knowledge and skills they need to make healthy life choices and lead a lifestyle that includes physical fitness. Elementary students engage in activities that promote fine and gross motor skill development as well. Younger students also learn how to work as part of a team and cooperate to achieve goals. Conflict resolution is another component of the elementary level, and children learn how to deal effectively and appropriately with adversity. Various games are explored, including softball, kickball, and basketball. From a wellness perspective, students learn how to take care of themselves, including how to best protect themselves from illness. These activities are among a set of lifetime activities in which students can engage regardless of their age and which promote health and fitness across the lifespan.
