Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Naugatuck District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum moves students through different genres of text such as fiction, poetry, drama, historical fiction, and non-fiction. While students will learn to read these texts fluently, they will also be able to analyze what they have read for meaning. Students also participate in regular technology classes in order to prepare them with the skills necessary for the 21st Century. They not only learn how to write essays, but they develop a number of media skills to enhance the presentations of their original work.
Social Studies courses are broken down into Civics, Economics, U.S. History, and World History. Students learn about historical and cultural facts as well as major concepts in governance, economics, migration, and social change. Students are able to conduct independent research, also, into different aspects of history or historical figures that helps to develop their independent research skills.

The Naugatuck Public Schools follow the Common Core State Standards and Connecticut Learning Standards to ensure that all students receive a comprehensive education in their core and elective courses. Learning objectives are stated for students to meet each year, and teachers are able to use their discretion in how best to convey the material. Each year students are expected to meet certain benchmarks as outlined in the curriculum and are assessed through statewide assessments to ensure they are meeting the goals. These tests also ensure that teachers and schools are providing for the appropriate adequate yearly progress for their students.

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: Math Word Problems
With the introduction of the Common Core Math Standards, students are expected to develop a deeper level of mathematic literacy as one of the outcomes. This is accomplished in many ways, but word problems are a mainstay of early and intermediate math learning. For students, one of the key skills is understanding the language of math and what they are being asked within a word problem. They should use clues based on word meanings to understand the method or formula by which to solve the problem. In general, an equation will be what they have been studying, so have them compare formulas or process they have been learning with what they are trying to find. It may be helpful to have your child review these formulas or processes before they work on the problem so they are already thinking along those lines. Make sure they read the problem several times to verify their final answer is correct. If these helps are not enough, your child can talk to their teacher or a tutor in the area to receive more assistance.
