Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Palestine District Curriculum
Reading and writing are combined in the Language Arts curriculum at Palestine Independent School District. From the time the students begin school they learn to use books that are read to, or by, them as examples of writing to be studied. They learn to pick out settings, characters, voice and genres. They then learn how to place each of these into writings of their own creation. They also learn how to place facts and evidence to back up the facts to make each of their creations relevant.
The Social Studies curriculum at Palestine Independent School District includes the study of geography. Students begin by learning the basics such as near, far, left and right. They then learn other vocabulary that is used as they study maps and countries around the world. The students learn the geographic factors behind borders and settlements. They also learn the cultures of the different people in each of these lands and how they compare and contrast with those that live in their own area. Geography shows students how people are connected through their communities.

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: Careers in Math and Science
When a teen is considering college and careers in math and science, they may have concerns about the type of careers they can expect to find in these areas. In the area of science today, students who have a concern for the environment may want to consider this field where they can study sustainable energies, water conservation and more. If they prefer computers, software engineering is an area that is always growing as the world of technology expands. In the area of mathematics students look in an area that crosses science and math as a clinical data manager. This field helps to collect and analyze data to help in drug tests. Certified Public Accountants also use mathematics when helping with taxes, financial reporting, audits and management. If a student has a desire to use geometry and spatial skills they can look into becoming an architect, whether in the industrial world, natural arenas or others. With this sampling of careers, students that enjoy science and math can see that there is a world of opportunities for them.
