Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Killeen District Curriculum
The Science curriculum at Killeen schools begin by showing students that all items have mass. They also are introduced to recycling. Through early educational years they also learn how to measure the temperature of items by using Fahrenheit and Celsius. By middle school and high school, students are introduced to periodic tables and electron configuration in classes such as chemistry. Or they may learn about biological systems or study the interaction of the human body in Anatomy or in Biology.
The Social Studies curriculum at Killeen schools begin by helping students identify authority figures that are found throughout their world. They also are introduced to explorers, such as Columbus, and they study landforms, including how they shape a community. As they enter middle school students delve into the culture of the United States including nine traits of culture. This allows students to enter the world of high school social studies where they can go on to study United States History, World History or Geography.

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: Sixth-Grade Social Studies
Sixth grade is an age of change for many students, new buildings, many teachers in a day and physical changes. Social studies give students a sense of the past and how others fit in. This is helpful as these students are also dealing with some of these items. Although curriculum varies from state to state, generally students will study the ancient world in this grade, including the geography, climate and major landmarks of the areas. These students will use a number of hands-on activities to help in their learning and discovery. They will also learn how to link, sequence and interpret events in history. If a student seems to have difficulty in any of their classes, parents should contact teachers about ways to help the child.
