Halifax District and Curriculum
Silver Lake Regional School District encompasses the towns of Halifax, Kingston, and Plympton in Massachusetts. The district uses the Common Core State Standards and follows the Guiding Principles for English Language Arts and Literacy Programs in Massachusetts. Each subject is detailed in the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks and sets a path of learning expectations for students to achieve each year. The objectives are broad so that teachers have flexibility in determining what texts or lessons they teach and also increase in complexity. Educators are encouraged to work together across disciplines to help students understand how what they are learning connects to other aspects of their education and lives.
We currently cover the following Halifax-area school district: Silver Lake Regional School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Halifax District Curriculum
The curricular principles include the implementation of interactive learning to foster critical thinking and language skills, the use of literature to develop students’ understanding of literary heritage, the reading of informational texts to build academic vocabulary and content knowledge, providing students with appropriately challenging tasks to develop oral speaking and reading, writing various genres (including explanatory texts, arguments, and narratives), and having high expectations of students.
Educators also are engaged in providing explicit instruction of literacy skills, embedding students’ interests and experiences into literacy instruction, preparing students for their future education and careers, and reaching out to families and communities in order to sustain a literate society. From elementary through high school, students are also exposed to the school and community libraries so that they know how to locate and access information and have opportunities to conduct independent inquiry.

In playing their characters, they learned things about the historical figures that they didn’t know; for example, Abigail Adams was very intelligent and had a large influence on her husband John.
- SLRMS Students Hold ‘Academy Awards’ to Celebrate Books - During Silver Lake eighth graders’ “Academy Awards,” they showed video trailers of books they read and wanted to persuade their peers to read. They could select any fictional book they wanted, and when creating their short video trailers, they uploaded pictures, incorporated music, and used subtitles or voice narrations to tell their story. Students were encouraged to approach their trailers by thinking about how a filmmaker would tell their story.

Chalk Talk: What Do "Specialist" Educators Do?
Reading specialists and other intervention specialists concentrate on specific content areas and work extensively with students who struggle in this area. Reading specialists are most common, with most schools having one (some schools may have two). Reading specialists play a vital role, as they are seen as the reading "experts" in their school or grade bands. They are expected to have expert knowledge of reading assessments, texts and their reading levels, intervention strategies, and all aspects of literacy (comprehension, fluency, etc.). They work with and provide strategies to all the classroom and content area teachers in the school. Reading specialists are responsible for giving various assessments to students in order to diagnose specific struggles in reading and must be able to interpret this test data. Reading specialists may work with small groups of students in their own classroom, work with students who need help in their regular classroom during reading class, or co-teach reading with classroom teachers.
