Ware District and Curriculum
Ware Public Schools serve three schools and around 1,300 students. The district’s mission is to offer a challenging and safe learning environment and promote lifelong success. The schools have implemented the Common Core Standards which focus on Math and Language Arts and which are complemented by the Massachusetts Content Frameworks for other core subjects. These are objective based curriculum frameworks that establish the standards which students need to meet. Each subject is detailed according to its major topics, and age appropriate learning objectives within each are laid out in a clear progression. These standards have also increased the critical thinking tasks that students are expected to do at all levels of their schooling.
We currently cover the following Ware-area school district: Ware Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ware District Curriculum
Ware Public Schools post curriculum maps for each grade level and content area. Curriculum maps for English language arts are broken down by unit and include focus standards, suggested works and resources, and sample activities and assessments. Focus standards are based on the Lexile Frameworks for Reading. For the elementary grades, various types and genres of books are suggested, including picture books, poetry, nursery rhymes, informational texts, and songs. As students move on, they are taught different methods for determining meaning in both literary fiction and non-fiction texts.
The curriculum maps for math include unit/theme, the content and essential questions for each unit, the skills students are expected to acquire, the assessments used, the teacher resources, and the related Common Core Standards. The areas of numeracy, algebra, geometry and data analysis are primarily focused on and students begin learning the basics of each during elementary school. By high school, the students will be able to construct models to help answer mathematical problems and extrapolate information from quantitative data.

Chalk Talk: Teaching Main Idea
Establishing the main idea of a text is one of the literacy concepts students have the most difficult time grasping. However, it is essential to students' comprehension of a text that they be able to determine main idea. Teachers need to show students how to identify two or three supporting details from their reading in order to help them find the main idea. They need to engage students in discussion so that a variety of ideas are heard and students learn how to make meaning from what they have read. Students should underline or highlight these supporting details so that they have them in clear view. The supporting details point to what the text's main idea is. Students should not worry that there is only one way to state a main idea; indeed, there are many ways to describe the point of a text. When students are first learning about main idea, it is beneficial to work with shorter texts and literary classics.
