Educating Our Parents: Understanding the McAllen District Curriculum
The Science curriculum at McAllen Independent School District teaches students to use their senses to explore the world around them. This includes observing plants growing in a classroom, or caring for classroom pets. Students also learn to touch and smell items with care so as not to injure themselves. This is included in laboratory safety that is taught so no matter if the students are outside or inside they know how a scientist explores their world. Students are also taught how to use a variety of media and technology to research and demonstrate the knowledge they have gained.
Writing is introduced to students at McAllen Independent School District through observing and practicing. Students are introduced to the formation of letters in the early years of school. They then learn how to connect these letters to form words, paragraphs and eventually essays. They also learn how to use specific words to convey a feeling throughout a creation, whether it is an expository work or a work of fiction.

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: Seventh and Eighth Grade Reading
By this age most curriculum call for the seventh and eighth grade student to begin to read independently. This term can be confusing to some but generally it means the student is expected to read on their own, without having an adult standing over their shoulder. During this time reading groups are usually eliminated from the classroom and students will be expected to read several poems, plays and one novel each year. At times a student will show no interest at all in reading. If this is the case, the parent should let the teacher know so that a plan can be put together to help this student succeed, not only in this class, but across the curriculum.
