Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rochester District Curriculum

In language arts, grammar and language use is studied beginning in elementary school. The earliest parts of speech students learn and gain an understanding of are nouns and verbs. In order to identify nouns in a sentence, students will be taught to determine if any words are examples of people, places, things, or objects. When learning about verbs, they will first be asked to look for any words that are examples of actions. Eventually, students will gain an understanding of pronouns as well as other types of verbs such as linking and helping verbs.

In math, students learn there are four ways to understand multiplication problems. First, the commutative property states that, even if one switches around the factors in a multiplication problem, the product will remain the same. Next, according to the associative property, it does not matter where the parenthesis are placed in a multiplication problem; the answer remains the same. The identity property states that any number multiplied by one equals itself. Finally, according to the distributive property, multiplying a value by a sum is the same as multiplying that same value by each of the addends in the problem and adding those two values together.

Rochester District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

Old Rochester Regional School District uses the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks to guide teaching and learning in core subjects and is aligned with Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) tests in English language arts, English language proficiency, history and social science, mathematics, and science and technology/engineering. In recent years, the mathematics, and science and technology/engineering has been integrated so that students learn about these related areas in an integrated fashion. Another update to the curriculum is the increased emphasis on informational texts in language arts courses.

We currently cover the following Rochester-area school district: Old Rochester Regional School District.

Chalk Talk: A Guide to the Most Commonly Misspelled Words

Spelling is a big part of school but an area many students struggle with. There is a large list of words that students (and many adults) spell incorrectly. Start out with ACQUIRING the correct spelling of "acquire"; don't forget that C! The second part of "amateur" sounds like the word "mature," but you can see it is not spelled "amature"! It can be difficult to remember if suffixes of certain words contain an A, E, or I; think of words such as "calendar," "cemetery," and "collectible." In the word discipline, students may forget if there is an S or C or, if there are both, which order they go in. Although words such as "precede" contain the -cede suffix, it is not spelled "excede" but "exceed." One more: "Fiery" is another tricky word, as students are tempted to simply place a Y at the end of "fire."
