Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Webster District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum has been designed to clearly support communication and literacy skills in all subject areas. Webster Middle School’s literacy coach has compiled a list of websites that comply with the school’s four literacy initiatives for the school’s teachers to use. These include articles from the popular educational journal The Reading Teacher. These articles focus on fluency and “endurance,” meaning the ability for one to read with the proper accuracy, rate, expression, and comprehension over a long period of time.
Character education is an important emphasis, as is technology literacy and preparation for living in the 21st century. Grade level standards and benchmarks ensure that students have the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in all aspects of life. By participating in this curriculum, students acquire the tools they need to communicate ideas and information necessary for educational success.

Webster District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Webster Public Schools is a rather small school district with three schools and almost 2,000 students. There is an elementary school with grades K-2, a middle school with grades 3-6, and a junior-senior high school with grades 7-12. The district advertises a simple slogan on its homepage: “Every Classroom. Every Student. Every Day.” The schools follow Common Core and Massachusetts State Frameworks to oversee teaching and learning in all subject areas. This curriculum is aligned to the assessments students take in reading, writing, math and science.
We currently cover the following Webster-area school district: Webster Public Schools.
Keeping Informed: Recent Webster Educational News
- Malser Grants Help Art and Technology Come Together - Thanks to the awarding of three Malser Grants, Bartlett students are seeing art and technology collide, as art is not just about painting and sculpting today but also about graphic design, photography, etc. The first two grants allowed for the purchase of computers, digital cameras, and several types of lenses to use with the cameras. The third grant will fund five PCs, an iMac, six digital drawing tablets, eight Nikon digital cameras, a digital picture frame, stop motion animation software, and a 3-D printer.
- Bartlett Senior Is Very Busy - A Bartlett High School senior is an honors student at her school, is the vice president of her class, competes on three sports teams, is the president of the band, and is involved in three clubs. The well-rounded student also models and acts on the side, and she was recently named the 2014 Model of the Year by the Boston Camera Club. Although her schedule is so busy, she wants to enjoy her high school years, meet new people, and show school spirit.
- Webster Receives Grant for Defibrillators - Webster Public Schools were awarded a grant to purchase automated external defibrillators within the district. Although the defibrillators are best used by those who have been trained, they come with automated instructions that allow anyone to use them.
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: What Do Eighth Graders Learn in ELA?
In English language arts, eighth graders must analyze how particular lines and dialogues in texts contribute to events, characters, and decisions made. They must also analyze two different texts, determining how their individual structures distinguish their meanings and style as well as how differing points-of-view impact suspense and humor. Students will also compare and contrast modern works with traditional texts such as myths and the Bible. They will evaluate film adaptations of books and form an opinion as to whether or not they stayed true to their printed counterparts. Eighth grade students must not only be able to cite textual evidence but also be able to pull out the evidence that most strongly supports an analysis of what the text says. They must identify and analyze multiple texts that provide conflicting information on the same topic. With guidance from peers and teachers, students should make changes to their writing if purpose and audience are not well-addressed. They should be able to conduct research on self-generated questions.
