Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mapleton District Curriculum
Problem-solving is at the core of the educational approach promoted by the Utah Core Standards. Therefore, concepts and skills are taught in ways that reinforce their application. When students are practicing their reading skills, for instance, they are asked to read a text without excessive advanced preparation and are encouraged to go back into the text and figure out what additional information they need, or to ask questions to gain clarity.
This more closely approximates how people deal with written information in college classes and in their lives after education, and helps students build skills to succeed in those circumstances. Similarly, mathematical principles are taught with an emphasis on applications. The various types of mathematics are taught in an integrated manner, in order to make sure that the links between them are clear. Students are also given the opportunity to apply their mathematical learning to concrete situations, in order to understand the purposes math serves

By placing the art in the cafeteria, where students will encounter it every day in a casual environment, to help teach them that art can be anywhere.
- Balloons for Science - As a part of a unit on buoyancy, students at Mapleton Junior High built hot-air balloons out of tissue paper and sent them soaring. They used the project to understand how balloons are constructed and the mechanics of making them fly. One balloon even carried a video camera, which students used to see how their balloons functioned in the air.
- Fundraising for a Cure - Inspired by a book about disabled characters, Mapleton Junior High students organized a fundraiser to support research to cure a rare genetic disease. Students sought out a personal connection to someone with the rare disease (Spinal Muscular Atrophy with Respiratory Distress), and then chose the fundraiser as a way of making a difference.

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: Building Problem-Solving Skills
Your student will be focused on solving problems in school related to the material they are learning: answering questions, figuring out connections, and applying concepts. Why not help them practice those skills at home? Ask them how they would go about figuring out how to resolve an issue, or ask them to propose a plan to deal with a daily process. Let them test that plan, and then help them figure out how to improve it. Even if the skills they are practicing aren’t ones they learned in school, the method of identifying an issue, testing solutions, and settling on one that works will serve them well throughout their education, and their life.
