Rowley District and Curriculum
Triton Regional School District serves over 2,800 students residing in the towns of Rowley, Salisbury, and Newbury. The district uses the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks which sets the standards for learning in each subject on a grade-by-grade basis. Each subject area is broken down by its main topics, and learning objectives are described so that students have a clear path to proficiency in areas such as algebra and geometry or chemistry and physics. Each subject area framework also describes the types of critical thinking skills that students are expected to develop and use, and relevant applications for their knowledge.
We currently cover the following Rowley-area school district: Triton Regional School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rowley District Curriculum
As part of their math literacy development, elementary students have to learn to read bar graphs and line plots. Students must also read the keys of pictographs carefully because a picture might represent more than one object or person. Students will also gain an early understanding of measurement conversions such as inches to centimeters and inches to feet. Eventually, students will learn to multiply the length of an object by its width in order to figure out its area; they will no longer be exposed to figures broken up into square units and will also have to solve word problems with no pictorial representations.
The Language Arts curriculum sets objectives so that students develop into critical readers and writers. The writing curriculum has many goals; first, it seeks to ensure students have the language and vocabulary skills to express their ideas. Also, it requires that students learn to write for a variety of purposes from self-expressive to persuasive. It also has a goal that students learn a process approach to writing and requires that both teachers and students understand the complete writing process in detail and that students be offered on-going feedback.

Chalk Talk: Finding Adverbs
Students generally begin learning about adverbs in their grammar classes in fourth grade. In order for students to truly comprehend the concept of adverbs, they also must have an understanding of other parts of speech, such as verbs, nouns, and adjectives, as well. Like adjectives, adverbs are describing words; however, they do not describe nouns (people, places, things, or objects) as adverbs do. Adverbs also describe more parts of speech than do adjectives; adverbs describe verbs (action words), adjectives, and other adverbs. One way to remember adverbs is that many of them end with the suffix -ly; although, many do not. Examples include quickly, lightly, slowly, badly, happily, etc. In the sentence “Jim runs quickly," the word quickly describes Jim's running, which is a verb, so it must be an adverb. It is easy to remember that adverbs modify verbs, as "verb" is right in the word.
