Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Everett District Curriculum
The goal for the Keverian School is for all of its students to reach proficiency in literacy, math, and 21st century skills (cooperative learning, global awareness, and the use of technology). The Keverian School has recently implemented the Bay State Reading Institute (BSRI) literacy model. The school has partnered with BSRI, which has assisted in reforming the entire school’s reading program so that instruction is literacy-cantered.
The Bay State Reading Institute works with schools whose percentages of students of low socioeconomic status, minority races, and limited English acquisition are well above the state averages. BSRI partners with schools for several years and seeks to majorly transform not only the practices that are used in reading but also the leadership and culture of the schools. Schools that have worked with BSRI have seen annual improvements in students’ fluency skills and significant increases in their state assessment scores.

Keeping Informed: Recent Everett Educational News
- Parlin Students Plant “Pinwheels for Peace” - Each year since 2005, millions of individuals around the world have placed pinwheels on the ground in support of world peace. On September 20, 2013, all students at Parlin School “planted” their own pinwheels, which were created in their art classes. The project allowed them to think about and express their emotions in regards to what is going on in the world and in their lives, as they wrote down and visually depicted their feelings about war and peace on their pinwheels.
- Teachers Rewarded with Gold Apples for Golden Work - Two Everett teachers were named 2013 Gold Apple Award winners: the district’s reading coach and a first grade teacher at the Keverian School. The reading coach has served the district in several capacities since 1999—also working as a Title One reading teacher and a fifth grade educator. This past year, she has excelled in working with both students and staff and has successfully implemented a new reading program at Keverian. The first grade teacher has worked in the district since 1993—mostly teaching at the second and third grade levels—and implements wonderful lessons, has great classroom management skills, and forms relationships with her students’ parents.
- Student Receives Award for Poster - A fourth grade student at the Keverian School was awarded for her anti-tobacco poster titled “Don’t Hurt Your Heart.” Her poster was one of 12 selected out of 3,000 statewide. At the State House, the student and her family attended a luncheon and received a tour of the building.

Chalk Talk: Integrated Lessons
Students (and some teachers) generally view each content area as a stand-alone subject; when reading is over, it is time for math, and when that ends, we have science, etc. However, exposing students to lessons that tie together content that they are learning in multiple content areas can lead to a deeper learning of that material. Also, students will make connections, recognizing that something that they are learning in English relates to what they learned in history class the previous day. Educators who teach self-contained classes can actually create integrated lesson plans that combine at least two subject areas. For instance, for a lesson on landforms, teachers can have students locate various landforms on a map and discuss which areas of the Earth different types of landforms appear on (for example, many plains are located in the Midwestern United States, where the land is primarily flat). Students can also describe the physical features of various landforms and build accurate depictions of them using clay. In the lesson described, there are aspects of geography, environmental science, and even art.
