Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Graham District Curriculum
The science curriculum at Graham Independent School District includes the study of Biology. This is a lab-centered class that focuses on the science of life. The students study both plants and animals. While studying biology they look, in-depth, into biochemistry, genetics, taxonomy and the cells that help to make life possible for plants and animal. They also study mutations and adaptations and see how these changes are beneficial and harmful. This study helps students to see beyond the surface of items to see what else there is.
The English language arts curriculum includes developing reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. Students study vocabulary, grammar usage, and mechanics and are expected to use proper language in their writing. They are also expected to recognize an author's purpose when reading and develop their own voice in creative and persuasive writing. Students learn about literary devices such as symbolism and foreshadowing which helps them understand the creative intent of an author and allows them to use such techniques in their creative work.

Graham District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum at Graham Independent School District is based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. This allows the school to create student-centered curriculum which helps the students develop skills they will use in their futures. Project-based learning is emphasized so that students not only spend time working on a topic but also develop critical project management skills including the ability to collaborate with others. Students are also encouraged to communicate about what they are learning and use their literacy skills in all subjects. Once students are in high school, the curriculum allows them to specialize their learning and prepare for their individual college and career goals.
We currently cover the following Graham-area school district: Graham Independent 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: Culture and Education
Culture has an impact on how children learn. There are some cultures which believe that working with other students is cheating while others see it as a way to give or receive assistance. There are places where it is believed that children should be quiet during the school day and eye contact should be avoided. One more is that all material should be considered communal while others believe that items belong to the individual. The differences in cultural history and ideologies need to be considered in the classroom and if children get together to study at home so they can obtain knowledge in a way that is suitable to them. Recognizing these subtle differences amongst students is a great way to get them thinking about their cultural awareness.
