Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Griffith District Curriculum
In English and Language Arts (ELA), students learn to read, write, speak and listen using correct English. Reading material includes both informational text and literature so that students are prepared for the types of reading they could find on the job or in college. A particular emphasis is placed on critical and analytic writing so that students have a full mastery of the written language.
The social studies curriculum at Griffith Public Schools requires students to begin learning about their immediate environment in kindergarten. As they advance in grade level, they also study American and global history. Rights, laws and responsibilities are some of the various topics discussed, as well as the governments and current issues of other cultures. These tasks are accomplished through the construction, reading, and interpretation of models and maps. Elective courses are also available in economics, sociology, world geography, and United States government.

SchoolTutoring Academy 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.

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: How To Write An Outline
Outlines can be very helpful for organizing your thoughts when writing an essay, book, or other literary work. Your first step in creating an outline should be picking a topic. You should also decide who your intended audience will be. A paper that informs a beginner chef about the basics of cooking will have a different voice than one written to parents and/or students trying to pick a college. The next step is to create your thesis statement, which will tell the reader what your essay will be about. You can then write a sentence or a few words describing the main idea for each paragraph in the paper. It is also helpful if you write down supporting sentences or ideas for each main idea. Don’t forget that there should be an introduction and conclusion in addition to the body of the paper. Outlines can be composed of numbers, letters, symbols, or anything the writer wants to use to keep their ideas organized. Using an outline can help to produce a well-written paper that flows nicely and explains any main points thoroughly.
