Lakewood District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The school districts in Lakewood have done an excellent job mapping out curriculum that follows standards, builds on skills, increases learning, and implements the Common Core State Standards. Students in the districts must take four years of English Language Arts to be eligible for graduation. Ninth grade curriculum follows the Common Core State Standards for reading and the reading is broken into quarters. The year starts with informational text and ends with poetry. In ninth grade students learn to write expository essays, literary analysis, persuasive essays, and research papers. Since the Common Core Standards were followed in writing the curriculum, these are all skills that the students have been developing from kindergarten.

Chalk Talk: Helping a Reluctant Reader
Some children try to avoid reading whenever possible. Generally these children may have learning difficulties, have not been allowed to choose their own books or do not have easy access to books. Parents can help their child by finding books that fit with the child’s likes. Perhaps they like humor, or action. Show the child books that are like these and let them explore until they find one of interest. When they have finished the book let them pick another to keep this habit going. Most middle and high school students seem to enjoy paperback books. They fit in their binder easily, are easy to grab and go and seem to fit in their hands in a nice way. Some children think paperbacks are shorter than a hardback version, plus replacement cost is very little if lost or damaged. These are all easy elements to get around if a parent want to encourage their child to continue on with the adventures they can find in book.
