Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sheldon District Curriculum
The English curriculum includes the study of literature. Students discover how to read to support facts found in the text. They also discover how to cite the text they are reading, as well as how to find a theme, or a central idea. They then look for evidence supporting this theme, including how the theme showed itself and how it end in an objective summary. The characters they study develop different motivations, interactions and they move the plot forward and the students learn how each of these are accomplished.
The Mathematics curriculum at Sheldon Community School District include geometry, number and quantity, algebra, functions, modeling and statistics. Students begin to develop problem-solving skills in each of these topics in elementary and middle school. When the students are in high school they study imaginary numbers to develop complex numbers. Each of the functions, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are addressed in new ways in each area of mathematics and they are expanded upon when studying exponents.

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: Professional Resume Tips
Every profession is different, but the format for the resume should follow some general advice. For students who are inclined to go into an education profession, it is important for to include information about field experiences and student teaching because these things likely represent the bulk of their experience in the classroom even though they were unpaid. Each field experience should include the school, the school district and its location, the rough dates the experience occurred, and a brief description of the candidate’s duties (e.g.: working with small groups of students). Student teaching is the major experience, so all of the candidate’s tasks need to be highlighted in greater detail in list form. Candidates may choose to list these experiences in a separate section of the resume or tie them in with volunteer experiences. It is a good idea for candidates to briefly describe any volunteering they have done in order to demonstrate that they are well-rounded individuals; they may choose to focus on community service that involved working with children or that required skills useful for the education sector, such as volunteering in a library.
