Reading District and Curriculum
The Core Curriculum State Standards recently adopted in Pennsylvania provide a framework for the curriculum in Reading School District. This curriculum has been designed to be standards-based, meaning that identifiable objectives for learning are clearly stated for each grade-level in each subject. The curriculum also aims to prepare students for college and career and was developed in collaboration with professionals outside of the educational system so students are prepared to meet future expectations.
We currently cover the following Reading-area school district: Reading School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Reading District Curriculum
Overall goals have been set for English/Language Arts; Mathematics, and Science. In English/Language Arts, students are expected to develop skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening, taught consistently in all schools. This is of particular importance in a district where many students speak another language than English as their first language. Literacy skills are taught so that student learning is supported in all curricular areas.
The Reading School District has focused upon ways to foster trust and relationships between students while they strengthen old skills and develop new ones. For example, young students who learn to complete sentences with new key vocabulary in English will later write paragraphs in a connected, logical story, and create a framework to use as an outline for papers and articles of their own. Students develop process-oriented skills they will be able to use throughout life.

Finding an academic tutor that can help connect the language learning with the content learning may be the exact resource that will help a child translate their knowledge effectively.
