Andover District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Led by a Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment Departments’ mission to guide all Andover schools towards the state standards, students are assured a plan for Math and ELA based in Common Core Standards. The reason lies with a curriculum model called Understanding by Design which calls for a rigorous, clear curriculum to underpin student learning. Beyond this core, the opportunities to explore the arts or technology through the schools electives is also a cornerstone of the learning experience.
We currently cover the following Andover-area school district: Anoka-Hennepin School District.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Andover District Curriculum
The Local Literacy Plan follows the state-mandated Reading Well by Third Grade outline and procedures. In ELA students follow balanced literacy. This starts with becoming a competent reader and the enjoyment of reading; writing, oral, and visual come later. With instruction taking its cue from Gradual Release of Responsibility Theory, the five foundational elements of reading are pursued: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary development and comprehension.
Math also follows the Understanding by Design curriculum model. Number Knowledge, Algebraic Foundations, and Geometry and Measurement starts in elementary school and students are beginning Data Analysis and Algebra in middle school. The Understanding by Design math takes off in high school; students are undertaking Geometry with Applications in Construction Trades; Algebra with Quadratics and transitioning into Trigonometry; Statistics with applications in the Arts and Humanities is available; and AP Calculus classes, all of which leads toward mastery of collegiate-level math.

Chalk Talk: The Role of 'Understanding by Design' Curriculum Development
The importance of creating curriculum through Understanding by Design lays in backward development. The concept comes from the 1998 book of the same name by Jay McTighe and Grant Wiggins, Understanding by Design. Starting with the learning outcomes, lessons are developed. This guides the creation of assessments and instruction in the classroom. By having clear and assessable outcomes, which follow a logical progression of skill building or conceptual deepening, everyone in the process can see clearly how each student is faring. It is easier to recognize areas of strength and weakness and helps with decisions on how to allocate instructional resources. It provides for all students being able to achieve the same levels of academic success and offers teachers the chance to customize their lessons for the best of each student.
