Douglas District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Converse County School District uses the guidelines set forth in the Wyoming Content and Performance Standards. The standards provide the learning objectives that students are to meet from kindergarten through graduation in all courses. The goal is to provide rigor to the learning that all students are exposed to, however the standards allow teachers leeway to determine the best way to teach a lesson. To further ensure that all students are meeting the educational goals, there are both support services and enrichment programs in which students may participate.
We currently cover the following Douglas-area school district: Converse County School District #1.

Chalk Talk: What Is the Writing Workshop?
The Writing Workshop is a method of teaching writing that many teachers adopt in their classroom practice. The goal is to teach writing as a process and a craft and to teach students the different stages that writing goes through from first thought to final presentation. The process begins by devising brainstorming and outlining strategies or pre-writing thoughts that might later become an essay. The next stage is to plan and write, whether it's a story or an essay, and to work on a full first draft. After a student has produced a first draft, they are taught editing and revising techniques that help them improve the flow and organization of their writing. Finally, they are taught how to present their work - whether using a computer or in a presentation form that includes other visuals. Through this approach, students learn how to take time developing writing which increases their capacity for efficient and effective writing abilities.
