Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South St. Paul District Curriculum
In Science, students become familiar with identification and classification systems as well, such that they are able to categorize different types of soils and rock. Together, these three areas of study give students greater insight and understanding into the natural world around them. Plate tectonics is another topic of study as part of this curriculum. Learners explore how the planet’s plates move, and how their movement shapes geology. The difference between S and P waves is analyzed as well.
The high school arts curriculum in South St. Paul includes an in-depth examination of the theatre arts. Theatre students analyze how the various aspects of a production – from character development to language to plot – combine to help actors communicate meaning and ideas to the audience. Various performance genres are explored, including musicals, dramas, and comedies, as are types of plots, including those that are chronological and nonlinear. Students evaluate the characteristics of theatrical productions from around the world as well, noting the similarities and differences between Western and non-Western productions.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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: Competency-Based Education Benefits Students
Competency-based education is a personalized learning structure that focuses on children developing competencies in a specific area, then moving on to more advanced learning opportunities. Competency-based education does not rely on seat time as a measure of success, as the traditional school format does. Rather, if a child masters a subject in four weeks, they are free to move on to the next level in that subject. Supporters of competency-based education maintain that students are much more engaged in learning because they can work at their own pace. Students that need more time to show mastery can do so without the pressure of trying to keep up. At the same time, students that breeze through coursework are able to take on advanced learning opportunities much more quickly.
