Dickson District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum at Dickson County School District is based on the academic standards set by the Tennessee Department of Education. Each subject area framework is designed so that students learn the fundamentals during elementary school and begin to get hands-on practice with the topics as they progress through middle school. For instance, in Math, students are taught operations, pattern recognition, shapes and measurement, and ratios and probability so that they can handle algebra, geometry and statistics in high school. Core academic learning is measured each year on statewide assessments that help demonstrate that every child has achieved the goals.
We currently cover the following Dickson-area school district: Dickson County School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dickson District Curriculum
Students at Dickson County School are exposed to the world of literature through the English curriculum. They are encouraged to read independently and find books that they like and use those as a basis for independent reading logs and written analysis. Students also learn about literary devices and how authors use these devices to help create meaning in their text. In reading non-fiction, students learn to read for information while also recognizing potential bias that an author may have.
The Math curriculum consists of 8 Standards for Mathematical Practice that educators look for students to achieve. These standards involve in understanding problems and persevere in solving them, being able to reason abstractly and quantitatively, constructing arguments about mathematical reasoning, using mathematical tools and models, attending to precision in problem-solving, and recognizing structure and repeated reasoning. Underlying these broad goals are the skill-specific objectives for mathematical problem-solving.

Chalk Talk: Staying on Track with Homework
Creating a schedule for homework goes a long way in making sure it gets done daily. Positive motivation is also helpful; students might plan a reward for finishing each chunk of work. Students should also consider completing the most difficult part of assignments first so that they are not tempted to stop working. If you and your child both have smartphones or other devices that will sync, you can “share” a calendar and monitor the dates your student enters. There are also several apps for Apple and Android devices that keep up with homework and other due dates. One is myHomework, which alerts users to upcoming due dates and customizes to match your child’s school schedule. Once students learn to put these tips into action, procrastination can easily become a thing of the past.
