Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Decorah District Curriculum
Decorah Community Schools post a curriculum guide for each content area and grade level. Each curriculum guide contains each benchmark students are expected to attain as well as a description or example as to how students met that standard. For example, a benchmark kindergarten students are expected to attain in language arts is to “draw, dictate, and/or write a logical sequence of events.” Two specific examples of a child meeting this standard are their retelling a story in sequence and him/her putting pictures of a story in the correct order.
Decorah High School offers a variety of unique course options, including Agriscience, Digital Painting, Pre-Employment Strategies, and Macroeconomics. Advanced Placement and Honors courses are also available in core academic subjects and which allow students to learn at a higher degree of academic rigor. There are also college and career readiness standards that call upon students to be able to think critically and independently about the topics they are learning. Among those standards is also the expectation that student be able to conduct research.

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: Children’s Literature Spotlight: “The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs!”
This is a hilarious variation of the classic “The Three Little Pigs” tale, which was written by Jon Scieszka. This version differs greatly from the classic story, as it is told from the wolf’s perspective. In Scieszka’s story, the wolf was not really big and bad; he just wanted to borrow a cup of sugar so he could make his granny’s birthday cake. When visiting his first two neighbors (the pigs) to ask for some sugar, he sneezed—he had a cold—and blew their houses down. The two pigs died, so he could not just leave them there without having dinner. The wolf was found at the third pig’s house, where he was trying to break down his door because he criticized his granny. According to the wolf, the news reporters spiced up the story and made him out to be the Big Bad Wolf.
