Fall River District and Curriculum
Massachusetts has developed a statewide Curriculum Framework that incorporates the Common Core state standards and will fully implement this K-12 Curriculum Framework beginning in the 2013-2014 school year. The district also follows the College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards for Writing in the Curriculum Framework which identifies four broad types of standards for developing this critical ability over the years. Among the social development goals for learning, students develop an appreciation for inclusivity and compassion, and learn how to work effectively with other children. Strategies to enhance cooperation and personal responsibility are learned as well.
We currently cover the following Fall River-area school district: Fall River School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fall River District Curriculum
Throughout the writing curriculum, students are asked to develop and defend positions, present explanations of complex ideas, and write stories to convey experiences. They are expected to be able to develop and organize their ideas in a style that is appropriate to the purpose and audience, to gather information about their topics from online and print sources, assessing them for accuracy and reliability. The critical thinking skills of analysis, evaluation of sources, and the ability to communicate new ideas are emphasized.
Students are also expected to be proficient in using various technologies to publish and present their work. They are expected to be able to write for many different tasks ranging from a single sitting to a long-term project and to understand how to organize their time effectively to accomplish more complex tasks. The development of these skills are intended to be used in all subject areas. The focus on scientific literacy, mathematic literacy, technical literacy, and historical literacy are all supported through this strand of learning.

Chalk Talk: Understanding How Each Student Learns Best
One of the most exciting areas of current educational research focuses on the brain. Researchers have already established that different people use different learning styles; some people rely on visual stimulation, while others prefer to learn through listening or physical interaction. Another insight that science has provided is the degree to which the brain is adaptable and plastic. New learning actually changes the structure of the brain. As scientific research continues, educators will be increasingly able to apply their findings to classroom instruction. For the time being, however, recent findings confirm that providing young children with a stimulating environment is crucial to their cognitive and intellectual development.
