Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Littleton District Curriculum
Littleton Public Schools posts curriculum brochures for each grade level and content area. These curriculum brochures outline the knowledge and skills students are expected to gain by the end of the school year in each content area as well as a general philosophy for each subject. For example, an ideal literacy program fosters reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills through a challenging, interactive curriculum. Literature of various genres and time periods are incorporated. Students also locate information using various forms of media.
One overarching goal is to foster an appreciation of reading as well as to help develop 21st century skills in students. The 21st century skills emphasize critical thinking, creativity, innovation, and collaboration which are all skills that students will need to use in college and their professional life. Project-based learning helps teachers provide the time for students to develop these skills and their strengths in organizing individual and group projects. Community service is also emphasized so that students learn how to connect with their community.

Littleton is “committed to providing a challenging and comprehensive curriculum that meets the needs of all students and is consistent across grade levels.” They follow the expectations set out in the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks which provide a consistent series of standards within each topic of a subject. The continuity allows students to arrive at advanced levels of subject area learning.

Keeping Informed: Recent Littleton Educational News
- Littleton Girls Engage in STEM Learning - Flying Bridges partnered with several other companies to hold a two-day event for girls aged 11 to 17. The 23 girls--some from Littleton--were challenged, in teams, to design a prototype for an assistive device or service to help individuals with disabilities. The goal was to encourage girls to pursue STEM careers as well as--more broadly--to give them more confidence (with a particular focus on ending trafficking).
- Littleton Second Graders Want Woman on $20 Bill - Second grade students and teachers at Shaker Lane Elementary are closely following an online poll that has the goal of replacing Andrew Jackson's portrait on the $20 bill with that of a woman by 2020, the 100th anniversary of women being granted the right to vote. One of the teachers found a related video to show students when they were learning about Clara Barton, one of the candidates to be pictured on the bill. The video sparked a lot of interest among the students as to why no women are pictured on any bills.
- Fourth Graders Host Relay Recess for Cancer - As their service project for 2015, fourth graders at Russell Street Elementary will host the American Cancer Society's Relay Recess program. This program combines educational components--cancer prevention through physical activity, proper nutrition, sun safety, and tobacco avoidance--with fundraising, community service, and team building.
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.

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: What Is Algebra?
Algebra is a branch of mathematics that involves symbols and the manipulation of these symbols. A major part of algebra is using mathematical formulas and solving equations, with missing numbers being expressed as letters. Although students do not take algebra as a stand-alone subject until they get to high school, they start being exposed to it elementary school, and it provides an early foundation for many of the more complex concepts they will learn in math. One example of young students using algebraic thinking is when they use inverse operations to solve problems (e.g. 2 + ? = 5). Students also begin to learn order of operations, which is required knowledge for solving equations, in the upper elementary grades. High schools typically offer Algebra I and Algebra II as two of the three math courses required for students to graduate.
