Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dover District Curriculum

The Chickering Elementary literacy specialist emphasizes the Empowers Writers approach to writing. This approach uses many graphic organizers, including a Simplified Narrative Writing Diamond (which shows that more writing should be dedicated to the middle of a story than the beginning or end), a Simplified Expository/Informative Writing Pillar (which outlines that students should begin with an introduction of the topic, include facts, and end with a conclusion), and the Expository Pillar (a more complex outline that includes a topic sentence in the introduction and requires several main ideas and supporting details).

In math, elementary students will learn to find the area of two-dimensional plane figures. When they are first learning this concept, they will be taught that area is measured in square units, so they will likely have to solve for the area of squares or rectangles composed of small squares each representing one square unit. If this is the case, they can simply count the square units, and the total number represents the area of the object. They may be asked to find the area of a shaded region of a figure, meaning they would only count the shaded square units.

Dover District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

Dover-Sherborn Regional School District serves students in the towns of Dover and Sherborn. One of the district’s two elementary schools as well as its middle and high schools are located in Dover. In fall 2014, the district began the Challenge Success initiative as part of a national research and intervention program based out of Stanford University. The program aims to redefine “success” in schools and communities as well as to reduce unhealthy pressures on students to perform at a high level. Thanks to a grant from the Dover Sherborn Education Foundation, the Dover-Sherborn is one of just 10 districts across the country to participate in this program.

We currently cover the following Dover-area school district: Dover-Sherborn Regional School District.

Keeping Informed: Recent Dover Educational News

  • Recent Dover Grad Recognized for Many Attributes - A recent graduate of Dover-Sherborn was awarded the 2015 Ruth Pfeiffer Town of Dover Scholarship for her academic achievements, involvement in the community, and leadership in community and civic affairs. The well-rounded graduating senior also received the Lombardo Theater Award for musical theater award, was awarded the Student Council Award for her work as president, and had the opportunity to speak at her school's commencement ceremony.
  • Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program - A graduating senior from Dover-Sherborn was one of 112 students across Massachusetts to be awarded a $1,000 scholarship on behalf of the Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program. Each year, Comcast hands out these scholarships to seniors who demonstrate positive change in their communities, show leadership skills, are high academic achievers, are involved in their schools, and act as role models to their peers.
  • Chickering Celebrates End of School Year - Chickering Elementary celebrated the end of its school year in style, with all of the students gathering in the gym around a piano. In the outermost circle sat the fifth graders who would be headed to the middle school; they donned the t-shirts that they created, which read, "Stealing the Scene: Class of 2015." Students also learned from their principal that they exceeded the blue ticket challenge--during which teachers gave out tickets to students displaying good behavior--which meant that the school would be making a donation to a local animal shelter.

Chalk Talk: Conjunction Junction, What's Your Function?

One part of speech students must have an understanding of is conjunctions. Although conjunctions may seem like little, insignificant words that play an importance role in the formation of sentences, as they link different parts of sentences. Students need to use conjunctions to construct more sophisticated, compound sentences. The most popular conjunctions that are used to connect sentences are and, or, and but. Students will need to know which word is the most appropriate to use when connecting two sentence parts. For example, in the sentence "She wanted to go to the amusement park, ____ she wasn't feeling well," clearly the word but makes the most sense in the blank. Other examples of conjunctions include so, because, yet, for, and as. The famous educational "Schoolhouse a Rock" tunes--one of the most popular being "Conjunction Junction"—have been used in classrooms for years to help kids learn the various parts of speech and aspects of grammar.
