Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Edgewater District Curriculum
Volusia County Schools’ superintendent regularly posts updates to the elementary curriculum. Prior to the 2014-15 school year, elementary math and language arts teachers collaborated with other teachers during K-2 Inspire. The educators worked together to incorporate curriculum guides, design high-quality lesson plans for the first quarter of the year, create instructional materials that would enhance student learning, and understand the importance of effective lesson planning.
Additionally, the K-5 Curriculum At-A-Glance documents provide an overview of the concepts and content taught and learned in social studies horizontally across grade levels and vertically from grade to grade; these documents are also supports for teachers and demonstrate common instruction and learning across grade levels to educators and administrators. Lastly, teachers were trained to create the structure and routine needed to integrate centers and small-group learning in math. The district provides curriculum maps and guides; the English language arts guides include cyclical reading and writing standards, the pacing for each quarter, essential questions, and the available resources.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy 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.

SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
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: Apps to Teach Writing
The Common Core Standards call for a great deal of writing, and there are several iPad apps that teachers can sue when teaching writing to students. Popplet is known for being a mindmapping tool. It is a great for the writing process, as it helps with prewriting and students organizing their ideas. StoryBuilder is an app designed for elementary students and helps them understand story structure, including sentence structure, sequencing, and inferencing; SentenceBuilder is a related app that helps students put together sentences. With StoryBuilder, students build their comprehension skills by answering questions about pictures, and their answers are recorded and put together to form a cohesive story. ToonTastic appeared on the New York Times list of “Best Apps of the Year.” Elementary-aged children follow the steps to incorporate the elements of a story: setup, conflict, challenge, climax, and resolution. Students simply press ‘record’ and manipulate the characters to tell their story; they can play their stories back for their friends and family.
