Jasper District and Curriculum
We currently cover the following Jasper-area school district: Jasper City Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Jasper District Curriculum
Jasper City Schools uses Project-Based Learning in its school system. Project-Based Learning is a method of learning where students
use hand-on technology and their own discovery skills to learn a concept. It is highly effective in the acquisition of knowledge.
Being actively engaged in their learning, children are more likely to retain the information.
The Project-Based initiative used by Jasper City Schools enables the teachers to educate by having the students collaborate with peers,
research the material, and produce information. In mathematics, Jasper City Schools uses this type of teaching technique along with
the technology that is available within the schools. Students from the primary to the advanced levels of mathematics use technology
to formulate and create connections to the real world. In Language Arts, Project-Based Learning is a great way for the students to
read non-fiction by researching the topic at hand, and to explore beyond the actual text they are reading.
Our Jasper , Alabama tutoring programs are personalized just for you
Our instructors hail from Harvard, Stanford, Duke and other top institutions
