Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Southfield Township District Curriculum
Biology is a part of the science curriculum which is introduced during elementary school and which introduces increasingly complex topics during middle and high school. In biology the students gain experience in field and lab investigations. They also use scientific methods to carry on these investigations, including creating hypotheses and experiments. This enables them to gain critical thinking and problem solving skills. In this class, students learn about cells and viruses, tissues, taxonomy, and many other topics.
In World Geography, at Birmingham City School District, the students look at the people, places and environments locally and then compare them to regional, national and international areas. They also see how geography had a determination on events in the past and in the present. They also learn about the interaction of people and their physical surroundings. While in this class the students learn about the physical processes that are a part of geography as well as the political, economic, cultural and social processes of different places.

Southfield Township District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Birmingham City School District uses the Michigan Merit Curriculum (MMC) to guide student learning from elementary through secondary school. The MMC aligns with the Michigan Academic Standards that provide the scope, sequence, and grade-level expectations for students. In core subjects, these expectations are also aligned to the statewide standardized testing and used to ensure that students have mastered each topic and are prepared for the coming years. In high school, there is a greater variety of options, such as dual enrollment, International Baccalaureate, and Career Technical Education, so that students can tailor their learning experience to fit their goals.
We currently cover the following Southfield Township-area school district: Birmingham City School District.

Chalk Talk: Helping Children with Spelling
Some children struggle with spelling but there are ways that parents can help them at home. First of all, when they come across a written word, have them tell what it says. This can apply to toothpaste, brand names or labels with their names. Another help is when the parent writes a note or a letter, they can talk to themselves as they write to help the child see the thinking process when writing. It is also a good idea to have the child dictate a letter for the parent to write and then the child reads it back to the parent when it is finished. Reading is another way to help the speller. By pointing out words while the parent and child read a book together, parents can help to show the sounds that each letter makes within the words. These ideas are good starting points for parents, and if the parent feels they would like more suggestions, they can talk with the teacher.
