Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Acushnet District Curriculum
The Acushnet schools focus on instructional technology in terms of the three areas it deems are “the core of education”: gathering information, analyzing and applying information, and communicating and collaborating. The district’s Leadership Team spent two years developing “A Guide for Making the Connection” to help teachers integrate other content and concepts into their instruction. By doing so, students gain an understanding of the interconnected nature of learning and how different subjects impact each other.
The guide is separated into grade bands, provides sample lessons and activities that align with standards, and describe the competencies students are expected to meet in terms of technology at each grade level. Additionally, the district is committed to providing teachers with high-quality professional development in this area. At the high school level, students are expected to take on more independent work in terms of conducting research and developing ideas for critical writing. Students should also be learning how to work with reference materials and cite sources.

Chalk Talk: The Junior Year
A student's junior year of high school is arguably the most important and most stressful of his/her K-12 educational career. This is the year when students begin to seriously contemplate colleges and future careers. Generally, students take their SAT or ACT exams during their junior year. They will start looking at and compiling lists of colleges and may be ready to visit and apply for them by the end of eleventh grade. The grades and GPA received as well as the courses taken in eleventh grade depict the last full year of marks colleges will see; college admissions often examine the eleventh grade transcript the most closely. Students will be able to start taking AP classes in eleventh grade. During this critical year, students really start to think about potential careers, often partaking in job shadows and attending college fairs. The junior year also marks the final year students take the ever-important state standardized assessment.
