Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Holden District Curriculum
WRSD’s core curriculum is centered on the following three statements about learning: “reading is thinking,” “writing is decision-making,” and “math is problem-solving.” In order to integrate these three truths into daily instruction, the district operates under a “workshop” model, which is a structured comprehensive approach to learning that cultivates understanding, develops foundational skills, and provides customized individualized instruction to students. WRSD is also committed to 21st century learning, helping foster the necessary skills students need to succeed in college and their careers.
The district has implemented an initiative that commits to continually approving the literacy curriculum. A balanced literacy approach is used, and literacy blocks include reader’s and writer’s workshops, phonics and word study, read alouds, literacy assessments, and support for the MCAS state exam. The district also uses a math workshop skill-building model that addresses the learning requirements of all students.

- Wachusett Coaches Get Certified in CPR, Defibrillator Use - Fifty-five Wachusett middle and high school coaches recently underwent training in CPR and the use of automated external defibrillators and became fully certified in both. The district hopes to avoid sudden cardiac deaths in children, such as that of 12-year-old Josh Thibodeau, who tragically passed away from a hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in 2011. This training was made possible by the Helping Hearts Foundation, which also provides extensive annual physicals, including EKGs, to student athletes.
- September’s Musician of the Month - Wachusett’s Musician of the Month for September 2014 was a senior who plays trombone and likes to experiment with other instruments. Her favorite composition to play was Les Miserables and her most prized performance was the opportunity she had to play at the Central District.

Chalk Talk: What Do Sixth Graders Learn in ELA?
In English language arts, sixth graders will be expected to cite evidence from texts to support textual analysis and draw inferences. From informational texts, they will distinguish claims supported by reasons and those that are not. Students will write arguments, introducing claims, supporting claims with clear evidence and reasons, and providing a conclusion. They should use reliable sources and a formal writing style. In students’ written informational texts, they should use elements such as definitions, cause and effect, and classification as well as proper transitions between ideas. When conducting research, sixth graders should be able to properly cite, paraphrase, and quote from sources. During academic discussions, students should set goals and define the roles of individuals in groups. When presenting information, they should use various multimedia components, including graphics, music, and sound, to enhance their presentation. Sixth graders are expected to use correct spelling, a variety of sentence patterns to keep things interesting for readers, and consistency in tone and style.
