Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wareham District Curriculum
Wareham Public Schools use the Common Core State Standards—the national Common Core Standards infused with the 2011 Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. The district organizes its grade-level benchmarks and standards for each content area by drawing out the big ideas, the essential questions that guide the learning, the content that is taught, the learning objectives (based on Bloom’s Taxonomy), the instructional practices that are incorporated (included how learning is differentiated to address students’ diverse needs), the assessments (both formative and summative), and the resources and materials that are used.
The district uses a chart to portray the importance of the curriculum and instructional practices intertwining for student learning and achievement to take place. Lessons should start out with the “big” overarching ideas and the essential questions that describe what students should know and be able to do at the end of the lesson. Instructional methods and learning activities as well as assessments should be built around the big ideas, while the essential questions lead to the formation of the learning objectives.

Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.

Keeping Informed: Recent Wareham Educational News
- All Wareham Students Will Eat Free This Year - During the upcoming 2014-15 school year, all Wareham students will receive their school lunch and breakfast free of charge. Wareham qualifies for this offering through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National School Lunch Program and the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, which give this opportunity to school districts in which 40 percent of the students are eligible for free meals.
- Wareham Students Excel in A.P. - Six Wareham High School students earned AP Scholar Awards, and one other took home the AP Scholar with Honor Award for their outstanding performance on their AP exams. They were required to score an average of 3.25 on all their exams and earn a score of at least 3 on four or more of their tests. Wareham High School, through a special grant, has been working to encourage more students to take AP courses. This has paid off; this year, the school saw its highest enrollment in AP classes, with 26 additional students scoring at least a 3 on one of their exams.
- Wareham High Students Attend Video Competition - Sixteen students from Wareham’s video production and AV courses attended the annual M.O.V.E. Awards, which honor the videos created by students from high schools around Massachusetts based on peer-voting. Wareham students’ videos were entered in the categories of Short, Documentary, Music, Commercial, Animation, and Sports. One of Wareham’s recently graduated seniors won second place for her video in the Short category; the student gave much of the credit to her AV teachers and the cast and crew that took part in her production.
Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy 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 very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
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: The Role of Student Teachers
Student teaching is an exciting time for future teachers because it is usually the culminating semester for education majors, and they finally get to experience what being a teacher is actually like. One of the most important aspects, if not the most important, is the relationship that the student teacher develops with his/her cooperating teacher. Prior to beginning student teaching, the candidate should send an introductory letter to his/her cooperating teacher and ask if he/she would like to set up an observation of the class(es) and/or one-on-one meeting or phone conversation beforehand. It is vital to communicate with the cooperating teacher, checking with him/her before trying certain instructional techniques or activities and asking any questions that pop up. In fact, is only beneficial to the student teacher to ask questions about anything and everything. This will help them understand the school’s curriculum, clarify classroom management methods, find out information about individual students, and just learn about the profession in general from an experienced teacher.
