Holbrook District and Curriculum
The Holbrook Public Schools has recently been awarded a $55.7 million grant to build a brand new K-12 facility on the current site of Holbrook Junior/Senior High School. The district has improved to a Level 2 school based on the achievements of students on the most recent Massachusetts standardized assessment. Holbrook is very unique in that it gives a thorough explanation of a curriculum to the parents. The curriculum section of the website begins by generally defining what a “curriculum” is and how the learning objectives guide classroom teaching. The new standards scaffold learning so that students compound knowledge and conceptual understanding each year.
We currently cover the following Holbrook-area school district: Holbrook Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Holbrook District Curriculum
The district describes how the curriculum is broken down into standards, clusters, and domains, which include an introductory description of the critical areas of learning for each grade level, an overview of each grade’s clusters and domains, and the actual academic standards (which include the domain, cluster heading, and individual standard). After that, the literacy or mathematical practices students are expected to excel at, which are born from the Common Core Standards, are spelled out.
The essential questions that drive instruction and learning for each curricular unit come next. The other portions of the curriculum include explanations and examples (of lessons and activities), aligned programs, and assessments. Each of the district’s curriculum guides for each grade level and content area follows this format. The learning expectations emphasize critical analysis of content as well as the development of broad-based research skills. Students are expected to learn the processes used in all types of academics, from writing to research.

Chalk Talk: Choosing a School for Alternative Learning
Sometimes, for whatever reason, some students just may not excel in the regular classroom. It may not be because they lack intelligence; in fact, it could be the opposite. They can be extremely gifted and bored, have a learning disability, have behavioral issues, or have other special needs. In these cases, parents may choose to make a major change in their children's education. One option is to send students to a charter school. Like public schools, charter schools are funded by a government body, are free, and are held accountable for academic results. However, parents choose them and need to submit an application for their child. Charter schools offer greater flexibility than public schools. Sometimes, parents will choose to homeschool their children themselves or hire a tutor to provide them with all of their education (very expensive). These are also options for students with severe physical impairments who cannot physically attend school. What about matching students with schools that cater to their specific needs? Examples include sending a deaf student to a school for the deaf or having a very gifted child go to a school for gifted children.
