Manassas District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Manassas City Public Schools create an atmosphere where students not only learn, but they can possess ownership of their education. This is met by using the Standards of Learning as a basis of creating lessons and allowing the students to learn through a variety of methods. Technology is a major focus of learning, both as an aid to learning and as a subject of it, and students are encouraged to see the relationship between classroom learning and practical applications.
We currently cover the following Manassas-area school district: Manassas City Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Manassas District Curriculum
The significance of the Science curriculum is shown by how soon Manassas City Public Schools begins the students’ education. From the beginning the students are introduced to the steps of the scientific investigation. This shows them to question, predict, observe and recognize patterns so as they learn they use these as a framework. In the elementary grades, the students learn about topics such as environments, food chains, matter and simple machines. This is continued through graduation, but in more depth when they are offered classes in oceanography, biotechnology, and ecology.
At Manassas City Public Schools, Reading is taught through a variety of books from the very beginning. Students learn about a story’s setting, characters, the time period, problems, solutions and sequence of events that occur in a story. By learning these aspects early, students are able to read stories such as “Charlotte’s Web,” “The Merchant of Venice,” “Odyssey," and "Fahrenheit 451" with more meaning and clarity.

Chalk Talk: Helping a Child Cope With Frustration
Every child can feel a sense of frustration when faced with something new. There are a few things that parents can do to help alleviate this feeling in children. First, when a child appears frustrated, stay calm. It is important that a parent does not reflect frustration in their own mannerisms. Instead, talk calmly with a child and try to get the child to mimic you. Present the child with some challenges that are just a little beyond what they usually do. When they begin to struggle, do not jump in but give them hints to make the situation easier. Next, encourage the child to be independent by supplying times where they can play with others without close supervision. Make sure the children are safe put otherwise let them solve problems themselves. This allows then to deal with frustration on their own, instead of having to turn to adults for assistance. If the child still shows frustration about school situations, set up a time to talk with the teacher to find other ways to help.
