Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Whitman District Curriculum
As per the Common Core Standards, reading is broken down into text complexity and comprehension, writing, speaking and listening, and language. The expected student outcomes for each of these categories and grade levels are listed. Elementary math is divided into counting and cardinality, operations and algebraic thinking, number and operations in base ten, measurement and data, statistics and probability, and geometry. For each grade level, there is a main theme from which learning stems for social studies (for example, students learn about “living, learning, and working together” for kindergarten and “Massachusetts and its cities and towns” for third grade).
Elementary and middle school science is categorized by earth and space, life sciences, physical science, technology and engineering, and inquiry. Inquiry includes asking questions, making predictions, recording data, and sharing results. In this Curriculum Blueprint, the high school standards are primarily categorized by specific courses.

- Whitman-Hanson Regional Welcomes Back Field Hockey - Whitman-Hanson Regional High School has brought back the women’s field hockey team after it was disbanded 30 years ago. The decision to bring back the team was made after 20 girls said they were interested in playing field hockey in the school’s annual athletics survey. The program has been more successful than could’ve been imagined, as 31 girls joined the team, and the Panthers’ 6-3-3 record will allow them to move from junior varsity to varsity next season.

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 Components of Fluency
Although many people think of fluency as reading quickly, rate is only one aspect of what it means to read fluently. Children can read fast but fail to comprehend what they read; in this case, they were not reading fluently. Students should read with accuracy and with automaticity, meaning that they can recognize words without hesitation and without the need to decode them. Although beginning readers will sound out a lot of words, they will eventually have to recall words automatically or else their reading will be choppy, and they will have difficulty comprehending the whole passage or story. The expression students use when reading is also a very important when it comes to fluency. They need to be able to read with proper pitch and phrasing; these things are referred to as prosody. It is not only about speed when reading!
