Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Galveston District Curriculum
Students at Galveston schools learn, through their Social Studies curriculum, how the world around them has developed. First the students learn about the development of their community, then they expand this by studying the vast history of Texas. This includes the battles that it fought with other countries, and the United States, to become a part of this country. Students also find out about the United States, from the time the New World was colonized, through the wars that led to its independence through the struggles it has today to remain a strong country.
The Reading curriculum is a part of the Language Arts program. Students, after they have learn the basics, begin to search reading for textual evidence to support the author's view of a story. They also look for thematic statements, and literary devices used. After learning about genres and what makes each one unique, the students use these characteristics to explore books such as "Anthem" and "The Crucible" to see if they can find the literary devices that helps them to understand and analyze their meaning.

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: Practicing Math at Home
Whether a child enjoys mathematics or sees it as a waste of time, there are ways that parents can help each of these children out at home. Remember, no matter which idea is utilized, keep a positive outlook when doing math, and the child will likely inherit this outlook. Look for ways that math is used throughout the day, such as when shopping and comparing prices, or when counting out change. Even if a child is assured that they know how to answer a math problem, ask them to explain how they did this. The main idea is to have them talk about their problem-solving. This helps them to make the subject more active. Look for resources online. There are several places that have online activities that are fun, yet educational. With whatever activities are chosen, be sure to show enthusiasm.
