Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Galena Park District Curriculum
Geography is a part of the Social Studies curriculum. At Galena Park schools geography helps the students become aware of the different cultures, lifestyles, countries and maps throughout the world. Students develop the ability to locate famous landmarks, such as the Himalayas, and explain the significance of the landmarks they identify. They discover how to use each of these to find similarities and differences in various cultures. By studying how various groups of people live throughout the world, they also discover how similar we all are.
The English language arts curriculum emphasizes critical reading and writing, but also contains objectives to ensure that students develop strong grammar and language skills. Work is done to familiarize students with Greek and Latin roots and affixes as well, which they can use to help identify the meaning of a word and students learn methods to decode word meanings of unfamiliar words. The proper use of adjectives and adverbs is part of the curriculum. Students learn how to choose the correct adjective or adverb depending on what is being modified.

The Galena Park Independent School District uses the Texas Essential Skills and Knowledge curriculum which contains a series of learning objectives that identify key skills, knowledge, concepts, and critical thinking tasks that students should be able to do. Core academics are supplemented by programs that increasingly specialize in areas that students may plan to pursue in college or career.

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: Parental Educational Involvement At Home
There are many ways that parents can make a difference in a child’s education without leaving the home. By encouraging learning at home and by finding real-life applications for material taught at school, are just two ways to help. Some other ways to help are to take time every day to read with or in sight of the children. This shows children how enjoyable and valuable reading is. Also provide a regular routine for the children, including homework, meals and a regular bedtime. By talking at the dinner table, children build their language skills. Parents also need to monitor the amount of time children spend in front of technology and then talk about what is being watched. Finally, praise and encouragement are always essential tools to help children grow.
