Santaquin District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Utah Core Standards are the local articulation of the Common Core State Standards, a curricular effort designed to make sure that students who graduate from high school will be ready for college or careers. Nebo School District, like all schools in Utah, is bringing its requirements in line with the Utah Core. The focus of the curriculum in the Nebo School District is on ensuring that students build a firm foundation in the early years of education that will support their progress in the upper years.
We currently cover the following Santaquin-area school district: Nebo School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Santaquin District Curriculum
In Language Arts, students are asked to demonstrate the ability to understand the parts of a story as early as kindergarten, and are asked to write about and express opinions and arguments about the texts they read throughout elementary school. This prepares them to write essays answering questions about both literary and informational texts in junior high and high school, using evidence from their reading to substantiate their arguments.
In Math, students are introduced to the core concepts behind geometry, algebra, and statistics as early as first grade; these topics are introduced gradually and in an age-appropriate manner, but always with the potential to link to more complicated versions of the tasks. In the early years especially, students are given the opportunity to visualize problems using charts, diagrams, pictures, and manipulatives. Later, they are asked to apply these skills to word problems, to make sure that they can understand the concepts behind a problem. view all santaquin tutors

Chalk Talk: Reading For All Ages
The emphasis on reading for elementary school students is important; students who read more will improve their skills more quickly than others, and will be able to do more complicated tasks in the classroom with ease. However, once your child has mastered basic literacy, reading outside of assignments doesn’t lose its importance. Reading widely exposes your child to new ideas, and makes them push their own intellectual boundaries in a way that can introduce them to different parts of the world. In addition, the skills developed in independent reading will reinforce those being developed in the classroom, such that your child will come to understand the links between English class and the rest of their life. Don’t stop encouraging your child to read once they leave elementary school—they can always benefit from being voracious readers.
