Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lancaster District Curriculum
Geography is part of the Social Studies curriculum at Lancaster Schools. Students begin by learning the meanings for direction words like up, down, far and near. They then learn how to use these words to describe their environment. Before they enter middle schools the students learn about the geography of their state and their country. In high school they learn how topographical features help determine where people settle and enable aspects of society, such as trade, to develop.
A student’s understanding of the reading curriculum, at Lancaster Schools, is built on their vocabulary. Students begin by learning small words, from one to three letters long. They learn how to help break them down by sounds. Then the words become a bit longer and more difficult. By the time the students have completed elementary and middle school, they have a sight word vocabulary consisting of three-syllable words. By building up their vocabulary, students are able to increase their fluency and comprehension of material which helps to decode and determine an author's purpose.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
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: Teacher Tips for At Home
Teachers, generally, can keep a classroom of students busy at work, but a parent may feel intimidated by this when their own children challenge their sense of control. There are some things that teachers do that allow them to have this kind of control. Visual aids are a great way to help the behavior of a child. When a child’s behavior is displayed, they can see if they are making progress toward a goal, usually some type of reward. A chart can help in this area. Another way to help with a parent-child relationship is to give positive feedback when they are acting in a way that is good. Whether this is homework, chores or other actions, make sure the child knows that their actions are good in the eyes of the parent. Helping a teacher in the classroom, or by volunteering in some other aspect of the school, is another way of showing a child that school is important and then by letting them know good behavior in school and at home are important.
