Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hopedale District Curriculum
The curriculum emphasizes literacy and communication skills as a central part of all subject area learning. Reading is taught so that students are able to look for the purpose of the text in both fiction and non-fiction, be able to analyze characters or stories, recognize the craft and literary techniques used in stories and the purpose of different text features in non-fiction. When students learn to write, they are given a variety of purposes for which to write. They are given opportunities to write persuasively, creatively, and analytically.
Once students are in high school, the curriculum allows them to focus in-depth on each academic subject and calls upon them to do work that will prepare them for college. Hopedale offers a School to Career Internship program in which seniors have the opportunity to partake in a practical work study in a career area that interests them for two class periods a day. In order to participate in this program, students must be organized, responsible, committed to the program, able to follow through on assignments, prompt, and professional.

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: Finding Perimeter
Third grade students will learn to find the perimeter of two-dimensional plane figures. They will gain an understanding that, while area is the amount of space covered by an object, the perimeter is the distance around the outside of a figure. To find the perimeter of an object, students will add up the lengths of all of its sides, following the equation a+b+a+b. Each pair of parallel sides will also have the same length. Another way to figure out perimeter is to multiply side A by two (or double it), do the same with side B, and add up the two totals. Of courses, squares will have all four sides equal, so one side can be multiplied by four to find the perimeter (or added four times). Students may be given the perimeter of a square and have to figure out the length of one of its sides, in which case, they would divide the perimeter by 4. They may also be given the perimeter of a rectangle and one of its sides and be asked to find the value of the missing side (not parallel to the given side).
