Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mount Vernon District Curriculum

Fairfax County Public Schools offers students’ courses in the sciences that stress scientific inquiry and investigation using a variety of methods. Upon completion of these courses, they will possess the ability to apply any learned skills to everyday experiences. Elementary school courses will emphasize the importance of accuracy in any observations or investigations made by students, as well as explore common weather phenomena, plants, and animals. More advanced courses will examine energy and matter in greater depth. Earth and environmental science, biology, chemistry, and physics are all essential components of science courses at Fairfax County Schools.

Courses in language arts attempt to teach students how to communicate effectively through writing and speaking. Reading comprehension is also a large part of the available courses. Skills are developed through group activities, presentations, and written assignments. In elementary school, courses will utilize classic and contemporary works in activities designed to teach students how to properly formulate questions and draw conclusions.

Mount Vernon District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The Fairfax County Public Schools follow Common Core Standards for Math and Language Arts and Virginia Standards of Learning for other core subjects. These are objectives-based curricula which lay out a series of learning goals in each subject and follow along a scope and sequence that logically builds from year to year. The curriculum is also reviewed regularly to ensure that the goals within meet the expectations that students will face. As students progress and begin to develop their interests and talents, a wider range of electives are available that either support their personal goals or their potential professional goals.

We currently cover the following Mount Vernon-area school district: Fairfax County Public Schools.

Chalk Talk: Speech Articulators and Sounds

The tongue, teeth, lips, and other structures in the mouth and face are all essential for creating speech sounds. When it comes to vowels in particular, rounding of the lips and lowering or raising of the tongue can have very different effects on the speech that is produced. For example, the ‘a’ sound (written by speech-pathologists and linguists as ‘æ’) in the word ‘bat’ is made without rounding the lips and with the tongue down. On the other hand, the ‘oo’ sound (written as ‘ʊ’ by experts) in the word ‘book’ is produced by rounding the lips and raising the tongue. Give it a try yourself and feel the differences! This is also the case with consonants but the teeth have an important role in the production of some sounds as well. Consider the ‘d’ or ‘t’ sound. When these are produced, the tip of the tongue raises to touch the back of the teeth. Each sound in the English alphabet is made by different body parts, or articulators. Combining these movements produces words, which flows into speech without any thinking (most of the time) on your part.
