Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lancaster District Curriculum
Elementary social studies is broken down into topics such as history, family and community, geography, civics, and economics. The middle school curriculum highlights divide social studies expectations into the specific topics students learn about, such as World War II, the Civil Rights Movement, and women's rights. English language arts is broken down into speaking, listening, and language; reading; writing; and conventions. Both subjects require that students develop the skills of analyzing and interpreting a wide variety of texts.
Elementary expectations for math include the standards for math (the steps for problem solving), operations and algebraic thinking, number and operation in base 10, measurement, and data. The science curriculum includes topics such as Earth and space, life science, physical science, and technology and engineering. Students also learn how to conduct and design lab experiments and keep scientific notes. The district has also devised and published standards and benchmarks based on the Common Core Standards for these grade levels.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
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: What Is Civics?
Civics is the study of government and citizenship. Civics is a very important part of social studies, as students learn how the government of their country works. Concepts include the study of the U.S. Constitution and its Amendments as well as other laws that helped shape the nation, the roles of each of the three branches of government, how a bill is passed, important Supreme Court cases and decisions in U.S. history, how different levels of court and juries work, etc. Civics may be taken as a middle school class, while more advanced courses having to do with government may be offered in high school and college. The understanding of civics is crucial for those seeking careers in the legal profession.
