Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Washington District Curriculum
Washington Community School District describes how curriculum development involves both research and design. The research is conducted both internally at the local level and externally, examining professional organizations, recognized experts, and the most up-to-date research. Designing the curriculum entails planning and choosing the academic standards and objectives that will be focused on and the instructional strategies that will be utilized.
Washington Community School District explains the two necessary components for successful implementation of a curriculum: an understanding of the concepts of the discipline to be taught and the providing of organized assistance (including coaching) to teachers to ensure that the most effective instructional strategies are being delivered in the classroom. Instructors work on generating essential questions that go along with the objectives in the curriculum. Lastly, it is essential that regular curriculum evaluation be conducted to ensure its effectiveness.

SchoolTutoring Academy 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.

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: Two Holiday Children’s Book
Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks for reading! One reading option is “Amelia Bedelia Talks Turkey” from the famous series by Herman Parish. In this hilarious story, Amelia Bedelia volunteers to be in charge of the third grade pageant when many of the teachers are ill and completely turns it upside down. However, the audience loves it anyway. In “Thelonius Turkey Live! (On Felicia Ferguson’s Farm)”, written by Lynn Rowe Reed, Thelonius the turkey is worried because he thinks he is going to be Thanksgiving dinner, so he keeps coming up with plans to avoid the “chopping block.” He finds out, however, that his feathers are being used to create lovely hats. The book includes very interesting illustrations: collages incorporating real-life objects.
