Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Saugus District Curriculum
The district provides curriculum maps for each content area and grade level. The curriculum maps are broken down into units—each including the relevant state standards, learning objectives, essential questions, teacher resources, media and technology resources, activities, and assessments. All grade levels have transitioned to much different math instruction with the adoption of the Common Core State Standards—this includes the use of a new textbook in the elementary grades.
In middle school, there is a focus on the Standards for Mathematical Practice, which are essential for student success in math. These standards include making sense of problems and being persistent in solving them, reasoning, constructing valid arguments and critiquing others, modeling with math in everyday situations, using mathematical tools strategically, being precise, and being able to describe mathematical thinking.

Chalk Talk: Educational Jargon: Praise
Praise is an educator’s verbal acknowledgement of good work or behavior by a student, group, or entire class. It may sound like a simple term, but the manner in which praise is given is a very important—yet often overlooked—part of education. Teachers will often say “great job” to their students, but this is not specific enough, as students may not know the reasoning for that praise. An example of praise that lets a student know exactly what he/she did right is as follows: “I liked how you used a diagram to represent how you solved the problem.” This type of praise not only can build students’ self-confidence but allows them to repeat such actions in the future since they can understand the source of the praise. Praise can also be referred to as [positive] feedback.
