Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sharon District Curriculum
Sharon Public Schools have developed a curriculum map for each elementary grade level for English language arts. Included for each unit are the essential questions that provide the basis for instruction and learning, the content that is taught, the relevant standards, the skills that students are expected to develop, how students will be assessed, the specific learning activities and strategies that are used, and the resources that are needed. The middle and high school curriculum expands the elementary curriculum to focus on prior learning, and adding more elective options.
Curriculum maps have been updated to include Literacy Across the Content Areas—as mandated by the Common Core Standards—explaining the literacy skills that will be integrated into social studies and science. The elementary math website includes parent resources, the district’s approach to problem solving, Sharon’s core math standards, and educational websites.

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: What Do Third Graders Learn in ELA?
According to the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts, third grade students must show deeper textual evidence in their responses to texts. In answering questions about selections they read, they need to explicitly refer to the text as the main part of their answers. They should be able to determine the central message, or moral, explaining how it is conveyed through key details. They will also have to describe how characters’ feelings, motivations, and actions factored in to the events of the story. In terms of craft and structure, third graders will have to differentiate between literal and nonliteral language in texts and their own point-of-view and that of the author’s. They will make deeper connections to illustrations and words in stories, describing how illustrations show meaning (i.e.: setting the mood, etc.). In nonfiction texts, they must define grade-appropriate general and domain-specific academic terms and phrases. When it comes to foundational skills, students should know the meanings of common prefixes and suffixes, be able to decode words with common Latin suffixes, and read grade-appropriate words spelled irregularly.
