Ashburnham District and Curriculum
The Ashburnham-Westminster Regional School District follows the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks in their elementary and secondary schools. The frameworks provide the detailed learning objectives that teachers use when planning their lessons and lay out a scope of learning that builds from the fundamentals to advanced understanding over the years. The curriculum is supplemented by other academic programs such as Advanced Placement courses and there are opportunities for students to take electives in subjects like the arts, web design, and business. Preparing students for post-secondary life includes character education and community service learning, and these are a part of the student experience so that they develop themselves beyond the classroom walls.
We currently cover the following Ashburnham-area school district: Ashburnham-Westminster Regional School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ashburnham District Curriculum
The Common Core emphasizes the development of strong literacy and communication skills, and those lessons are essential in early learning and for preparing students to be critical readers. The new standards have increased the focus on non-fiction as well so that students can use their literacy skills in all subjects. The district uses a balanced literacy approach that gradually releases control to the students in their learning. The system allows students to work at a level that is appropriately challenging to them as individuals.
The district follows several principals of instruction for both reading and writing that spell out what the learner needs for success in these areas; some of these include long stretches of time to read and write, explicit instruction in literacy skills and processes, teachers reading aloud to them, opportunities to respond to the texts they read, and opportunities to write authentically about topics they choose. By integrating these skills, students get to put to use the literary techniques they learn about and increase their analytic insight when they read.

Chalk Talk: Using Graphs in Third Grade
Third graders will be expected to answer questions based on data shown on various types of graphs and charts. Often, they will be asked to answer questions about tally charts, which may show the results of a vote or other numerical representations. They need to have an understanding of the number five as a tally mark symbol in order to successfully read this type of chart. If students were shown a tally chart that portrays how many students preferred each type of cookie, students may be asked to determine such things as how many students preferred Oreos, the total amount of students who preferred Oreos and Chips Ahoy (addition), how many students preferred Oreos over Snickerdoodles (subtraction), and the total amount of students who voted for their favorite cookie (addition). Another type of graph students may come cross is a pictograph, which shows data as pictures.
