Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Piscataway District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum in Piscataway Township schools has two primary goals. First, students will gain the ability to process, understand and question information in written form. This focus on developing fluent readers means that students will become critical thinkers – a skill that can be used in all aspects of life. Secondly, the curriculum provides students many opportunities to hone their writing skills. Students are taught the various components involved in the writing process, from idea and theme development to punctuation and grammar.
Throughout their education from kindergarten through the 12th grade, students can expect a cohesive curriculum in the language arts. Student learning is facilitated through the use of engaging and interactive lessons and activities that help make connections between classroom learning and real life. By the time students graduate from high school, they have acquired the necessary base for critical thinking, effective and clear communication, problem solving and grade-level reading.

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: Language Arts Isn’t Just Reading and Writing
Some people think that learning language arts involves only reading and writing. However, speaking and listening is also involved. While it is of the utmost importance that students learn to communicate effectively in written form, it is of equal importance that students learn how to verbalize their thoughts and actively listen to the thoughts of others. Gone are the days in which English class was nothing more than reading an old book and learning to use proper punctuation. Now, students are gauged on their ability to critically evaluate what they read, formulate those thoughts in writing, and verbalize those thoughts in an effective manner. In that way, students are taught to synthesize the skills they learn in the language arts into a “language toolkit” that will help them put their best foot forward, regardless of whether they are reading, writing, speaking or listening.
