Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Danvers District Curriculum
The mission of Danvers is to cultivate learners who are committed to academic and individual excellence, independent, respectful of others, and allow their creativity to shine through. Danvers Public Schools use the 2011 Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks, which revolve around thinking and communicating, gaining and applying learning, and contributing and collaborating. For thinking and communicating, students are held to high standards and use a variety of strategies in the learning process, and assessment is used to evaluate student performance and progress.
Gaining and applying knowledge involves a curriculum that is inquiry-based, requires problem solving and discovery on the part of students, and that shows a clear connection across different disciplines. Lastly, cooperation, collaboration, and communication among teachers, administrators, students, families, and community members in forging new opportuities is essential to the success of the district.

Keeping Informed: Recent Danvers Educational News
- Grant Turns Into School-Wide Mural - After an entire year of collaboration and work amongst the art teacher, a professional muralist, and the entire student body, a colorful mural was unveiled at Smith Elementary School. This school-wide project was made possible due to a $5,000 grant that also allowed the muralist David Fitcher to come in as an in-resident artist. The principal gave all the credit to the art teacher, who was impressed with the dedication of her students. Fitcher used the concept of "spaghetti and meatballs" with the students; the spaghetti was the details (the students' designs within the mural), while the meatballs were bigger and held the whole piece together (the muralist's design of interconnected rings).
- Danvers Senior Designs Award-Winning Costumes - A senior at Danvers has always had a passion for costuming—following in the footsteps of her mother—and has created the costumes for the school’s theater productions since her designing of Belle's iconic yellow gown in her sophomore year. Her costumes have earned her three Massachusetts Theater Guild awards. The artistic student says audience views and the actors' actions in a show are two things to keep in mind when costuming. She does not want to stop at costume design; she's strives to become a Disney animator.
- Boston Mayor Admires Students’ Courage - The Courage Curriculum, in conjunction with Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh, celebrated the courage of several sixth grade students from the area, including two from Danvers. The students were acknowledged for their essays sharing their personal stories of courage.

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: Educational Jargon: Prompting
Teachers engage in prompting when they help students elaborate on responses that they previously gave to questions. In classrooms today, students are used to using lower order thinking skills and often do not know how to do this. They do not have ample opportunities to practice answering more open-ended questions. However, with the Common Core Standards calling for a deeper understanding of the content, this is critical. Teachers cannot expect students to give detailed responses to recall- and fact-based questions, so they should begin by replacing many of them with questions that require students to think critically. This will be challenging for students—especially very young children—at first. Teachers often will ask students to tell them more or provide additional details, but this may not be enough for them to supply the needed information. Prompting often involves teachers asking a specific set of questions to draw the full response out of the child. This questioning should be done carefully; teachers should ask questions that help students say what they are thinking but that do not give the answer away. If the teacher has an idea of what the students is trying to say, prompting may be easier.
