Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Philadelphia District Curriculum
The curriculum in English/Language Arts and Mathematics focuses upon preparing students to succeed as adults, whether their futures include college or career. Learning objectives emphasize the development of analytical thinking, as much as facts and methods. For example, children learn how to read from nonfiction works that challenge them in content areas. Instructors can choose from a wide variety of texts and series for reading and language arts, rather than a single district-wide program, as long as state requirements are followed for the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment.
Teachers and students can use many different resources, workshops, and webinars to enhance teaching and learning in innovative ways. For example, the Think Aloud Using Backward Design Model presents methods and lesson plans to engage students in English, Language Arts, and Math as early as Grade 3. Students learn how to solve problems by talking about what they are doing and asking questions about the material they are learning. view all philadelphia tutors

Chalk Talk: Tips on Reading for Content
Readers can use the think aloud strategy to ask questions to guide understanding and to summarize concepts they will need to remember later. Before reading a passage, mark every 2 to 3 sentences to help you remember to stop and wonder about what you are reading. These methods are supported by educational research, and tutors can help students learn new ways to solve problems.
