Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Peabody District Curriculum
In the elementary schools, the Journey’s Reading Program is used; all of its texts and materials align 100 percent with the Common Core Standards, which will be fully implemented within the district in the 2014-15 school year. Also, in reading, a balanced literacy approach is used within a daily literacy block. During that time, phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension are all emphasized through guided reading and writing, writing workshops, interactive writing, independent reading, and shared reading and writing.
In high school, the literature courses provide students with the chance to develop analytic strategies that will be used in all their learning. Students learn how to recognize the purpose of texts, understand language and tone as well as develop these tools in their own writing. Students are instructed in research skills, how to reference sources and properly cite them, and how to incorporate other people’s ideas into their own work. Presentation, listening and speaking skills are also emphasized and students use technology to enhance presentations.

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: The Instructional Technology Specialist Certificate
Many universities are beginning to offer programs that allow education majors to obtain certifications in instructional technology (grades K-12). Teaching candidates should consider going such a route for various reasons. First, they are often built within the current education program that students are already working through instead of being a dual major, so students do not have to be concerned with the workload. The certification typically requires that students take a few courses, which oftentimes can be slotted in as electives. Also, basic instructional technology courses are increasingly becoming mandatory for teaching candidates anyway, so they may have a head start in proceeding through the instructional technology program. Having this additional certification may increase the likelihood of beginning teachers being hired, which can be difficult in many locations. It shows that the candidate has the skills to implement instructional technology in classrooms and can help their colleagues in doing so as well.
