Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Delta Township District Curriculum
One of the goals of the national Common Core curriculum is to prepare all students to be ready to enroll in college or join the work force. Several anchor standards in the Language Arts curriculum speak to this goal. One of these is the speaking and listening strand where students must master the act of active listening and collaborative conversations. They must also be able to present information coherently to an audience. Students will work on this strand through high school by integrating it into other subjects whenever possible.
Another goal of the Common Core curriculum is to assure that all students are literate in the content areas of Science, History, and Technology. One of the ways the curriculum does this is by integrating Language Arts with these content areas. For instance, during the Language Arts block students may read an informational text about the rainforest and then write an argumentative piece explaining why trees should not be cut down in the rainforest any further.

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: How to Learn Math Skills in Real-Live Context
It’s one thing to learn Mathematics concepts in school, but applying them in real-life scenarios is the true test of mastery. You can give your student some extra practice and exposure with a few helpful ideas. Younger students can set up a lemonade stand to practice many of these skills. Mixing the lemonade will require students to practice their measurement skills while selling it will entail adding and subtracting decimal numbers. Older students can practice some of these same skills by have a yard sale. Have your student gather any items they no longer want or need. Then, have them itemize each item, come up with a price, and label everything. This will help students practice categorizing and estimating. Finally, have your student hold a yard sale one weekend giving him or her complete control of the advertising, set-up, and money. While practicing several Math skills, they may also make a little money that they can then use to create a budget for things they would like to buy. Not only will students have fun with these activities, they will learn some valuable lessons as well.
