La Vergne District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Rutherford County Schools adhere to the Academic Standards established by the Tennessee Department of Education but are able to create their own curricular programs at the local level that fulfill the expectations. At RCS, there is a focus on literacy and communication as well as math and science and their points of intersection. The curriculum is scaffolded so that students are able to use what they learned in past years to master new material. In addition to advanced learning opportunities in core subjects, there is also the Tennessee Governor’s schools program that offers summer courses to gifted and talented students who want to increase their academic preparedness for college.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the La Vergne District Curriculum
The Rutherford County Schools provide educators with a scope and sequence of learning that students should achieve. The scope and sequence details the objectives, but allows teachers to determine how to instruct students in the goals. It also describes pacing and progression of skills and knowledge that students should learn from. For instance, in Biology, students learn about cell cycles, inheritance patterns, evolution, ecology, classification and study the interaction between different species and ecosystems.
The Algebra 1 curriculum introduces students to Functions and Structure of Expressions, Solving Equations and Inequalities, Linear and Exponential Sequences, Quadratic Expressions, and Square Root Functions. These topics are explored in a more abstract nature in Algebra II. Math students will also take Geometry where they will focus on the skills involved in Proving Theorems, Representing Transformations, Axiomatic Systems, and Scale Drawings. These geometry problem-solving skills help students understand spatial relations.

Chalk Talk: Kinesthetic Learners
There are several different ways that students learn in school. Some learn by writing, listening, watching, or touching. The kinesthetic learner learns by moving things, or themselves, as they experience education. These kids enjoy using manipulative objects and physically moving things. They also do very well when included in real-life action. Project based work that requires students to create or build something can be a very effective way to demonstrate what they know and can do. Often times, subject like physiology and anatomy are of interest to kinesthetic learners, and programs in areas such as physical therapy may be of interest. By knowing how these students learn the best, educators, and parents, can help to excel in school.
