Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hope Mills District Curriculum
The North Carolina Essential Standards—like Common Core—call for rigor so that this aspect is consistent in all of the curricular areas. In reading, students are expected to read texts of various genres and complexity levels, show progress in the development of their comprehension skills, and build content knowledge from their reading. Writing calls for students to build substantive arguments using textual evidence, with research being a key area. Students also write to develop their critical thinking and analysis skills.
Speaking and listening are not only important skills when students are giving formal presentations but also when they are having discussions and problem solving in collaborative groups. Lastly, the “language” aspect of literacy focuses on students’ ability to use effective English in their speaking and writing. The school district has posted the English language arts curricula organized by both grade level and by standard (reading: literature, informational texts and foundational skills, writing, speaking and listening, and language).

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: Grading
In most cases, grading should be based entirely on student achievement in terms of to what extent they matched the instructional objectives. Teachers will inevitably have some biases toward students, but they should avoid assigning grades based on students’ effort, behavior, and attitudes. Sometimes, effort may be indirectly graded when it comes to giving grades based on homework completion (some effort for completing the homework versus no effort for not doing it) or classroom participation (e.g.: a student who doesn't participate at all and who is not actively learning is showing little effort), but generally, effort should be left out of the equation. Tests with black-and-white answers are graded in a straightforward manner, while other assessments such as research projects, presentations, and essays should be graded based on a teacher-created rubric that is shared with students ahead of time. This does not mean that factors such as effort and attitude aren't vital to classroom success, and it is important that these areas of strength and weakness be communicated to students and parents in written and/or spoken feedback.
