Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hanson District Curriculum
The expected student outcomes for each of the subject area categories and grade levels are listed. Elementary math is broken down into counting and cardinality, operations and algebraic thinking, number and operations in base ten, measurement and data, statistics and probability, and geometry. Social studies involves a main theme from which learning stems for each grade level (for example, “living, learning, and working together” for kindergarten and “Massachusetts and its cities and towns” for third grade).
Elementary and middle school science is categorized by earth and space, life sciences, physical science, technology and engineering, and inquiry; inquiry entails asking questions, making predictions, recording data, and sharing results. In this Curriculum Blueprint, the high school standards are primarily categorized by specific courses. As part of the arts curriculum, a variety of cultural influences are examined by students as well. Students compare and contrast these various styles of arts, looking for common and unique elements.

Hanson District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Whitman-Hanson Regional School District encompasses the neighboring communities of Whitman and Hanson. As a whole, the district serves seven schools and almost 4,500 students. Whitman-Hanson Regional School District has developed a Curriculum Blueprint that lays out the district’s entire curriculum. As it is in the Common Core Standards, reading is divided into text complexity and comprehension, writing, speaking and listening, and language. As with all standards, the major topics – such as reading, writing, geometry, biology – within a subject are compounded yearly with increasingly complex expectations.
We currently cover the following Hanson-area school district: Whitman-Hanson Regional School District.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy 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 very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
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: Interesting Book Report Representations
Book reports used to be a staple in elementary classrooms, but they are becoming less prominent, as they are not highly engaging to students. However, there are ways to incorporate book reports while steering clear of the traditional written report. One way is for students to represent their favorite or a critical scene from the story through the use of a diorama made from a shoebox. Students will show their own interpretation through their creation but should be expected to explain why they chose the scene, why it is important and how it fits into the story, and what is occurring in the scene. Students can also use art to create representations of characters through sculptures, paintings, etc. Another idea is for students to take on the perspective of their favorite character, journaling through his/her eyes or "interviewing" him/or her. Other ideas include a written review of the book (as a critic), a skit or puppet show based on a scene, a written new ending to the story, or the creation of a video clip based on the book. Book reports don't have to be boring!
