Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Norton District Curriculum
The English language arts curriculum maps begin by outlining the skills that each student is expected to master by the end of the school year in the literary areas of print concepts (such as understanding the organization of print), phonological awareness, phonics and word recognition, and fluency. The map then includes the Common Core State Standards for reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language.
The maps for math are organized by domains, which include operations and algebraic thinking, geometry, or data analysis. Underneath each domain are more-specific clusters; for instance, a geometry cluster is reasoning with shapes and their features. In data analysis, students learn different steps to perform statistical analyses of information. Finally, stemming from the clusters are the relevant standard(s), the objectives and skills, resources, and assessments. Norton’s Curriculum Office also updates parents with its own Twitter feed regarding changes or updates to learning expectations.

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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: Common Core Standards: Reading the ELA Standards
The Common Core Standards begin with a brief introduction, followed by a description of the factors that were considered when designing the standards; for example, an integrated model of literacy in the English language arts standards. This is followed by information on what is not covered by the standards and a description of the skills college- and career-ready students have, which are focused on the standards. The standards for grades K-5 are the expectations for literacy across the curriculum, meaning that students are to apply the literacy skills in all content areas. The standards for grades 6-12 are broken down into two parts: the standards taught by secondary teachers and those covered by social studies and science or technical subjects.
