Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rockwall District Curriculum
Students begin their science education at Rockwall Schools by studying the Earth and the materials that make up this planet. They begin their study by looking at rocks, soil and water. Within a few years they study it more closely as they see how water, wind and ice slowly change the surface of Earth. By the time they graduate they will have had man lab activities and hands on opportunities to explore geology and earth science even more. This exploration of the Earth will raise an excitement in many of the students as they go out to their world.
The reading curriculum at Rockwall schools aims at connecting home and school. Each week parents are given a set of guiding questions to ask the students to see if there are areas that can be worked on at home. These are also used as a way of informing the parents of materials and topics being covered in class. Along with these questions, students learn how to summarize text they are reading into a form that is easy to share both orally and in written form.

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: After School Questions
Many parents are faced with blank faces or shrugs when they ask their children "How was school today?" Perhaps by making the question more specific they can elicit more details. Another way to find out information about the school day is to ask "What did you learn in math class today? Parents may still receive shrugs but by wording the question in a more specific direction it opens up the possibility of the child answering. If a child is doing poorly in a certain subject, rather than asking "Why are you failing science?" ask the child if the subject if too hard or too easy. This then allows the doorway to questions as to what they do not understand, or if the parent and child can research together. Most of all, questions such as these allows the opportunity for a two-way conversation, rather than being shut down by a shrug.
