Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Marquette District Curriculum
Instruction in Non-Fiction reading occurs early on in elementary school by first exposing students to the text. Once students begin to learn the differences between fiction and non-fiction, they will begin to learn how to use text features to comprehend the content they are reading. Some of these text features include headings, captions, and bold print words. Students will also learn about non-fiction text structures such as compare and contrast, sequenced, and cause and effect.
Once students enter middle school and high school, they will use the non-fiction reading skills daily in other subjects. In Science classes students will use most of these skills to learn and memorize important vocabulary words and concepts. Bold print words and context clues will aid students in this type of study. In History, students will use many of the sequencing skills in order to put events in chronological order. One of the text features to use for this skill is a time line which can be found in the text.

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.

First, make sure your student has all of the necessary supplies required by his or her teacher. Children can get very upset and nervous if they think they will not be prepared. Supply lists can usually be found on the school’s website. Next, attend your school’s meet the teacher night to allow your student a chance to familiarize themselves with their new surroundings. Students will feel more comfortable when they know exactly where their classroom is and what their teacher looks like. Finally, make sure your student gets a good night’s sleep the night before and eats a healthy breakfast that morning. Being well-rested and having the proper nutrition will help to keep your student focused throughout the day. By following these simple steps, you can make sure your student’s first day of school is an enjoyable one.
