Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Monroe District Curriculum
The upper elementary Science curriculum uses inquiry-based activities to explore different units of study. Students will not only use textbooks to learn the content, but will do many hands-on experiments as well. Some of the topics covered include weather, matter, plants, electricity, and animal classification. For each unit studied, students will several content vocabulary words they will need to learn in order to comprehend the information. They will also perform experiments that will deepen their understanding of the content.
High school science courses use what students have learned in elementary school and middle school and applies it to much more complex material. Some of these courses include Anatomy, Biology, Forensics, and Ecology. These courses will continue to have a lot of hands-on activities when applicable. For instance, students studying Anatomy will dissect many animals including frogs. Students can choose science classes they want to take based on their interests.

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: Inquiry-Based Education
Inquiry-based education involves structuring a unit of study around a central question. This type of teaching is usually found in Science courses, but can be used in any subject. Some teachers formulate the question for students before they begin their lessons so that students can be looking for important information. Other teachers may choose to allow students to come up with their own questions based on a topic. For example, students getting ready to study the Solar System might be asked why do all the planets revolve around the Sun or what would happen if the Sun suddenly disappeared. Students will then use what they learn throughout the unit and answer these questions. By using inquiry- based education models, students can focus more clearly and delve deeper into each topic allowing them greater comprehension of the content.
