Lakewood District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Lakewood City Schools follows Ohio’s New Learning Standards and is in the process of adopting the Common Core State Standards in Reading and Mathematics.

In addition, the Ohio Department of Education is revising the Science and Social Studies curricula to match the changes in English/Language Arts.

In English/Language Arts, students must learn to language proficiently by reading, writing, speaking, listening, and using a variety of literature, non-fiction, and media. They must also understand, evaluate, and apply what they read. Being able to read, write, speak, and listen with proficiency are the fundamental building blocks for creative and purposeful expression in language around key to learn in all content areas. The goal is to enhance critical thinking through analytic reading.

Chalk Talk: Verb Tenses
English grammar has six basic verb tenses: past, present, future, present perfect, past perfect, and future perfect. When writing, correct verb tense needs to use the correct form of the verb in the context of the time frame of the writing. When writing of something that happened in the past, use past tense. If the writing is about the present, use present tense. In addition, verbs need to agree in number with the subjects. Incorrect Tense: Last month, Sally drives over to her best friend’s house. Corrected Version: Last month, Sally drove over to her best friend’s house. Since the event in the sentence happened “last month,” (in the past) the past tense version of the verb “to drive” is the correct tense to use.
