Pecos District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Pecos-Barstow-Toyah Independent School District follows the guidelines set forth in the Texas Essential Skills and Knowledge curriculum. This is a comprehensive curriculum that provides high quality standards of learning in all academic subjects, electives, and career-related programs. The standards include many expectations for students to think critically about what they are learning and progress so that students are doing increasingly independent and complex work in high school. At the high school level, students are also offered a range of programs that connect with their personal and professional interests and are designed to prepare them for their college and career goals.
We currently cover the following Pecos-area school district: Pecos-Barstow-Toyah Independent School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pecos District Curriculum
The Science curriculum at Pecos-Barstow-Toyah Independent School District include the study of space. From the beginning, students learn the characteristics of the planets, history of space travel, and the science behind it. They also look at astronomy and determine how it was used by ancient civilizations. This shows the constancy of space as far as travel and determining important events throughout the year. In high school, students can explore this further through topics in astrophysics.
The Mathematics curriculum includes the use of formulas. This can include simple addition, and subtraction which is learned in the early years as well as those used in algebra when studying graphs to find the direction, rate and slope of a person who is walking. The students also are asked to create an original story problem to reflect what is they learned each day. Learners also utilize coordinates to determine the midpoint, slope, and length of lines as well. The study of formulas and coordinates help the students become better problem-solvers.

Chalk Talk: Types of Reading
Teachers often send home a list of the types of reading that a child may experience in a day, however, without an explanation of these types they are just terms on a page. Throughout a day a student may be exposed to independent reading when they are encouraged to read books of their own choosing. They may then be asked to share a report on the book or not. Students also spend time in guided reading moments. This is when they read in small groups with students at about the same reading level. There is also shared reading when a teacher may guide the classroom through a story. This is often done with big books. There may be other methods used, and may be clarified by discussing them with the teacher.
