Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Marlborough District Curriculum
Marlborough Public Schools use a combination of the Common Core Standards, the Massachusetts standards, and the district’s 21st Century Habits of Mind. Marlborough put together curriculum teams to make the necessary alterations to the curriculum and serve as a voice for all the district’s educators.
In preparation for embedding the Common Core Standards, the district’s Office of Teaching and Learning held a Curriculum Update Community Event for parents of children in grades PK-8. In examining the new standards, Marlborough designed a district-wide curriculum referred to as a “Learning Lens” that outlines district-created key understandings—along with the related concepts, skills, and 21st century skills for each—for every grade level and content area. An example of a key understanding is “reading helps us makes sense of the world around us”; a related concept may be the problem and solution in a story, a skill is asking and answering questions, and a 21st century skill is questioning the author and posing a problem. view all Marlborough tutors

Chalk Talk: Pay Attention to the Walls Around You
Elementary school teachers often spend a great amount of time decorating their classrooms, and there is a reason for it. The appearance of the classroom can make a difference in how children learn. No student—even in middle school, high school, or higher education—wants to walk into a dreary classroom with gray, bare walls. Teachers are often masters at decorating their rooms, but in doing so, may forget to think about giving the students an opportunity to own the room as well. This is important in establishing a positive classroom environment. Teachers may possess wonderful signs and eye-catching bulletin boards, but the best way to make the students feel at home in their classroom is by displaying their work. This can be work they create, a display of their thinking, a list of rules they came up with, a bulletin board that was their idea, etc. This is especially great for secondary-level teachers who may not be overly enthused about decorating their classrooms. It may seem like a small factor, but the appearance of a classroom can play a large role.
