Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Greenwood District Curriculum
Greenwood places a large emphasis on students reading. On the homepage of its website is an icon that tracks the total number of books and words students have read during the month. There are also pictures, titles, and authors of books that have been read recently that flash on the screen so that students can learn more about authors of interest to them. Independent reading is a large focus of the early reading curriculum so to help students enjoy reading.
Although personal interests are central to effective learning, the curriculum provides a series of rigorous standards in each subject that help students develop all the key skills and knowledge the subject has to offer. This also helps teachers understand the individual strengths and weaknesses of each student because through assessments they are able to see what objectives students are achieving and which are not. This can help provide targeted instruction, remedial or advanced learning options for students as needed, which helps to individualize the educational process.

Keeping Informed: Recent Greenwood Educational News
- Greenwood Senior Takes the Crown - An honors student who is a senior at Greenwood High School was crowned Miss Arkansas Teen USA 2014. She will fly to the Bahamas later in the year to compete in the national Miss USA pageant. After graduating, the beauty queen will attend the University of Arkansas, where she would like to major in Broadcast Journalism.
- FFA Provides Students with Unique Opportunities - Local high school students in Future Farmers of America (FFA) hosted a petting zoo for elementary students to visit. This is one of the many ways they give back to the community and build character. A senior at Greenwood emphasized the high level of commitment being involved in FFA takes; for example, members must wake up early in the morning to care for farm animals. FFA not only helps students learn about livestock and caring for animals but also can assist them in their future careers.
- Greenwood, Other School Districts Work to Improve ACT Scores - In recent years, Arkansas students have seen improvements in their ACT scores. Greenwood—in conjunction with other area school districts—is looking to run an ACT prep course four times a year. Students have credited such preparatory programs with increased scores and also favor them because they believe it is important to learn about the format of the test.

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: Tracking
Tracking—grouping students by their ability level—remains a controversial topic and method in education today. With students being so diverse in their abilities in different content areas, it can be difficult for classroom teachers to serve one curriculum to a heterogeneous group. This is compounded by the reality that class sizes are expanding, and more and more support staff (special education teachers, aides, etc.) are being laid off across the country. Why not place students with similar learning abilities together in the same classes? One reason is that students are being given labels early on, and it can be tough to break free of their “group.” Some schools group students as early as second or third grade. It is challenging for students in the “lower” groups to move up the ranks because they gain labels from early on in their educational careers, and teachers have and set lower expectations for them. This is very problematic because it causes students to expect less from themselves as well, so they may become complacent and not maintain a strong work ethic. Lastly, students can figure out from fairly early on which group they are a part of.
