Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Inkster District Curriculum
The elementary curriculum is divided into the four core subjects that include Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Instruction in Language Arts emphasizes the basic reading and writing skills that are necessary to be a successful student. The ability to read text and comprehend what has been read is the ultimate goal in these grade levels. Teachers instruct students on how to use a variety of reading strategies and skills to reach mastery of these standards.
As students move onto more complex text in middle school and high school, the strategies they will use will become more complex as well. The three main reading strategies used in these grades are inferring, determining importance, and summarizing. The inferring strategy is used when students must determine a detail about the text based on the information or clues given. For example, a student might infer that the character is from England because of his use of British slang and differences in word spelling.

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 Choose an Elective
Students today are offered a wide variety of electives to choose from in both middle school and high school. But, how does one know which of those choices is the best for them? There are several factors that go into choosing the right elective including career interests, time management skills, and past experiences. One of the first things a student should consider is their future career plans and interests. Choosing an elective that has to do with these interests can greatly benefit a student in the long run by giving them valuable hands-on experiences. Another aspect to consider is a student’s time management skills. Some electives are more complex and involve rigorous independent work. If a student already has a job or many extracurricular activities, a very time consuming elective may not be the best choice. One last determining factor is a student’s past experiences with the elective’s topic. Students who have had difficulty with the type of work or subject matter taught in the elective may want to choose a more enjoyable option. Taking the time to choose electives wisely can lead to a successful and fun school year.
