Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waite Park District Curriculum
Middle school social studies students learn about the expansion of the country to the west and industrial advancements that were made in the 1700s and 1800s. Students describe the various territorial expansions that greatly increased the size of the United States, including the Louisiana Purchase. Learners examine how these territories were explored, and what acquisition of those lands meant for the country’s economic power. New innovations and technologies that helped the economy expand are also analyzed.
In high school, the writing curriculum is emphasized across the curriculum. Students are expected to write analytically and be able to recognize and become able to write for different purposes. Students develop the ability to incorporate evidence into their observations, such that they can demonstrate an understanding of the material under study. They also participate in research in which they must utilize various sources in order to develop a cohesive understanding of a particular topic. They also learn about footnotes and bibliographies so that they can properly cite the materials they use when writing a research paper.

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: The Growing Debate About Homework
There are increasingly common discussions among educational experts about the value of homework. Many of these experts believe that homework is overrated. There are a number of reasons for this. First, after a full day of school, kids are burned out when they get home, especially if they are involved in clubs, sports, or other activities. They just don’t have the mental energy or willpower to put their full effort into homework. Second, experts cite several studies that show that kids with a heavy load of homework rate their school experience lower than their peers. If homework contributes to a negative view of education, the danger of further burning students out is very real. Lastly, many homework critics decry it as busywork with little value. If students don’t see the benefit of spending time at home working on schoolwork, they are far less likely to do it, let alone do it well.
