Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Bridgewater District Curriculum
West Bridgewater Public Schools has designed a rubric that outlines the criteria students must meet in each of these individual academic expectations. Scores in each category range from one—the learner barely meets the standards or doesn't at all—to five—the student exceeds expectations. For example, a student who receives a score of one in "reading actively and critically" shows limited comprehension of the main ideas of a text and provides few or inappropriate supporting evidence.
A student who earns a score of five in this category demonstrates a deep comprehension of both the surface themes and underlying ideas of a work and is able to make inferences and connections to previous readings and experiences—both orally and in writing. Each expectation also has a desired learner outcome attached; for example, for writing effectively, the student "is able to write using standard English for a variety of purposes and audiences." The schools use intervention specialists who perform a similar role to reading specialists in other content areas.

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: Geography at Home
Geographic knowledge is not difficult to include in the home surrounding. Geography can help build empathy for events that take place around the world. Simply by adding a wall map in the house can help enrich the child’s knowledge. As they hear about events from different areas, they can be encouraged to find the location on the map and then to mark it with a pushpin. This same map can be used to mark places the child has been or to plan a vacation in the future. Another way to bring geography into the home is to eat an authentic food from a different culture. This could occur once a month or even once a week. A fun family activity involving geography is geocaching. This is a treasure hunting adventure using GPS. The family goes to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then find the Geocache, which is a container that has been hidden. There is an organization called Geocaching.com which offers memberships for free.
