Dalton District and Curriculum
Central Berkshire Regional School District encompasses seven towns, with Dalton being the largest. Central Berkshire Regional School District utilizes curriculum maps for its content areas and grade levels. Each curriculum map contains the expected timeline of the unit, the essential questions and vocabulary skills that guide the unit, the assessments that are used (evidence of student learning), and resources and teaching strategies that may be used. The district also uses a specific template to outline each instructional unit. The district is also committed to 21st century learning and incorporate activities that promote collaboration and creative thought.
We currently cover the following Dalton-area school district: Central Berkshire Regional School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dalton District Curriculum
In all subjects, an instructional unit contains three stages. The first stage, which revolves around the desired student results, begins with the established learning goals that specify the understandings and skills students are expected to gain by the end of the unit; these goals may start with: “Students will be able to independently use their learning to…” The next section of Stage 1 ensures that the learning is meaningful for students; teachers have to establish the understandings students must gain (“Students will understand that…”) based on the essential questions that guide the unit.
The second stage of the instructional unit is centered on evidence that students met the established goals and essential understandings; teachers must determine how students will be assessed, which performance tasks students will engage in, and other evidence that may demonstrate student learning. Finally, Stage 3 focuses on the learning plan and calls for teachers to summarize the key learning events and instruction. Of course, expectations become more advanced at each grade level.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Physical Education
The physical education curriculum seeks to instill in each student the knowledge and skills they need to make healthy life choices and lead a lifestyle that includes physical fitness. Elementary students engage in activities that promote fine and gross motor skill development as well. Younger students also learn how to work as part of a team and cooperate to achieve goals. Conflict resolution is another component of the elementary level, and children learn how to deal effectively and appropriately with adversity. Various games are explored, including softball, kickball, and basketball. From a wellness perspective, students learn how to take care of themselves, including how to best protect themselves from illness. These activities are among a set of lifetime activities in which students can engage regardless of their age and which promote health and fitness across the lifespan.
