Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lunenberg District Curriculum
Lunenburg Public Schools believe several things about learning. First, a key to successful learning is students being able to transfer the knowledge and skills they gain to authentic, everyday tasks. In order to be successful at transferring learning, students need to understand the “big ideas” that connect isolated facts and concepts. Engaged learning is necessary for understanding to occur, and this requires that students value their work and have self-efficacy when faced with challenges. An understanding cannot be given to a child, they need to realize the power of an idea in order to truly comprehend it.
Educators provide students with very clear expectations of learning goals, including regular feedback that helps them produce the highest quality of work so that they can meet the standards expected of them. Students must be willing and able to reflect, self-assess, and make adjustments. Deep understanding may require to learners to rethink and refine previous ideas, and they must be provided with a safe learning environment that encourages academic risk-tasking in order to do this. Finally, learning is enhanced when it is individualized to the student’s interests, strengths, preferences, and prior knowledge.

Lunenberg District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Lunenburg Public Schools consist of three schools and about 1,700 students. The curriculum is driven by a series of learning objectives that establish a base of knowledge and then progress on to more complex, critically demanding skills and concepts. The goal of the curriculum is to help students connect their knowledge to the real world as well as to the other subjects they are studying. These ideas are influenced by Wiggins and McTighe’s Schooling By Design which focuses on the integration of learning. To further compound academic knowledge, students are encouraged to pursue extracurricular activities or electives that tie into their interests.
We currently cover the following Lunenberg-area school district: Lunenburg Public Schools.
Keeping Informed: Recent Lunenberg Educational News
- Lunenburg Considers Later Start Times to Benefit Teens - Studies have shown that later school start times would benefit teens, who have difficulty falling asleep before 11 P.M. due to shifts in adolescents' sleep cycles caused by hormones and, thus, are not getting the recommended 8.5 to 9.5 hours of sleep they need. When the new Lunenburg middle-high school is complete in fall 2016, the district will consider pushing back start times for these grade levels.
- S.A.D.D. Presents Motivational Speaker - Lunenburg's S.A.D.D. (Students Against Destructive Decisions) organization recently was able to present guest speaker Kevin Brooks, who is a part of the "Drive to Save Lives Tour." Brooks told the story of the night that changed his life and inspired students to think about their decisions in healthy ways.
- Students Learn About Filmmaking from Experts - Lunenburg High students received a visit from successful screenwriter Carey Hayes and 1977 alum Merlin Clarke. The men spoke to the students about writing, working hard, and pursuing careers they are passionate about.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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: A Fun Way to Teach Students Adjectives
Teachers can use simple games to help students learn and understand adjectives. One idea is for the teacher to collect enough objects for each student in the class; objects should be inexpensive and have multiple features students can describe. The teacher may decide to put all the items in a bag and have each student choose one without looking. Students should then write down a complete sentence describing their object using at least one adjective (the number of adjectives required may depend on how advanced students are in learning the part of speech). After giving students a few minutes to write their sentence, they should pass their object to the next classmate and write a new sentence about their new item. This can go on for as long as time allows. Teachers should save some time for students to read their sentences about the objects. As students become more advanced, they should write their sentences in less time and use more adjectives to describe each item. This activity allows students to form adjectives and exposes them to a wide array of describing words.
