Denison District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Denison Schools create productive citizen through quality learning using a curriculum based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. The curriculum design is progressive and builds a foundation from which students are able to do advanced and analytic work in all core subjects. Students also learn that by looking at subject matter in more detail, they are able to realize that there is much to see if they keep looking. This learning is then extended to the community, be it the classroom or a broader audience.
We currently cover the following Denison-area school district: Denison Independent School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Denison District Curriculum
The science curriculum begins with students looking at items from a basic viewpoint. They may look at a plant and classify it by the number or color of its petals, or they may look at a rock to see the different markings on it. This exploration goes more and more beneath the surface as the students become older. By the time they are through high school they will have learned that everything is made of matter and that each of these things can go through changes and how these changes affect items. They then look at matter to see the processes that items go through throughout their lives.
The reading curriculum at Denison Schools encourages students to read books that are relevant in many areas of their lives. In elementary school students integrate fiction and non-fiction throughout every subject. This continues in middle and high school as students also are encouraged to read books that are an interest to them through independent reading in the classroom and on their own. In high school the students read books like “The Odyssey” to help students learn about ancient mythology.

Chalk Talk: Middle School Reading Expectations
When students reach junior high school the amount of reading increases dramatically. Each state may have different standards when it comes to what they are expecting, but overall some things are the same. In junior high there are not any more reading groups or level readers. Students are expected to have more refined thinking skills about their reading. Reading is necessary throughout all of the subject areas, so students will come across many different genres that encompass history, science and math. At the high school level, the amount of reading will increase even more dramatically and students need to have developed a level of fluency with their comprehension and decoding skills. They will be asked to provide more analytic responses, draw inferences, and find connections between other texts. These skills will last a lifetime as students develop into increasingly critical readers.
