Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Eldridge District Curriculum
North Scott’s curriculum undergoes a four-stage development cycle. The first stage is centered on research, including conducting a needs assessment, reviewing standards and benchmarks, looking at the current trends and best practices, and determining the criteria for developing the curriculum. The second stage—curriculum development—involves aligning the Iowa Core Standards and the North Scott Standards and Benchmarks, establishing the benchmark proficiencies, and determining which instructional methods and resources will be used.
Stage three focuses on the implementation of the curriculum, including planning initial and ongoing professional development, instituting the curriculum in the classroom on a district-wide basis, monitoring and evaluating its effectiveness, and reviewing and adjusting as needed. Finally, stage four focuses on program evaluation and developing and/or selecting and implementing an instrument for evaluation, collecting, maintaining, and analyzing student achievement data.

Eldridge District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The framework for teaching and learning is overseen by the Iowa Core Curriculum. At the heart of the instructional program is literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, and 21st century skills. Each of these subjects contains grade-level objectives that prepare students for increasingly complex work. The objectives are written broadly so that teachers are able to determine the best way to teach their students in a given lesson and also allows for inter-disciplinary teaching which helps students see the connections between the subjects. Other areas of focus in the schools are the arts, health and wellness education, character education, and community service.
We currently cover the following Eldridge-area school district: North Scott Community School District.

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: Classic Storybook Character: Madeline
Ludwig Bemelmans’s Classic series stars the redheaded girl Madeline. In the original book in the series, which has been adapted in many formats, Madeline—the bravest of 12 girls in a house in Paris—had to have her appendix taken out. Once the girls visited her and saw all of the toys and candy in her room, they all wanted to have their appendix taken out as well; they admired their friend’s bravery after she had the surgery. In Madeline’s Christmas, a rug merchant sold Madeline twelve rugs. He became very cold without the rugs; he came back to Madeline’s, and she thawed him out. To return the favor, as a magician, he sent each girl to spend Christmas with her family. The twelve girls returned to the old house in Paris to celebrate New Year’s together.
