Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Marshfield District Curriculum
Marshfield Public Schools’ assistant superintendent heads the district’s curriculum, including that which is implemented in each grade from PK-12, instructional technology, the professional development that that staff partakes in, and district-wide state assessment data. For each grade level from PK-12, curriculum guides are provided for some or all of the content areas and detail all the learning objectives.
Curriculum guides include aspects such as relevant Common Core Standards (literacy and math), connected Massachusetts Curriculum Framework standards, skills and concepts learned by students, resources used in the lesson, and assessments that are given. The standards call for focusing in on major topics of each subject – for instance, in English Language Arts, the core focus is on reading, writing, listening and speaking, media viewing, and research. In Math, students compound skills in numerical operations, data analysis, algebra and geometry. In all subjects, students have the opportunity to pursue advanced work in high school.

Keeping Informed: Recent Marshfield Educational News
- Eighth Graders Get Full D.C. Experience - For the first time but hopefully not the last, students from Furnace Brook Middle School took a two-and-a-half-day trip to Washington, D.C. Roughly 320 eight graders and 60 school and parent chaperones took part in the trip. Students were able to do so many things in D.C., including taking pictures outside of the White House, visiting the Arlington National Cemetery, touring the Capitol, and playing patriotic music on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. The trip was made possible due to fundraising efforts from parents and donations from community members and local businesses.
- Alumni Enter Marshfield High One Last Time - Over 700 Marshfield High School alumni of various graduating classes gathered at the high school, which had been standing since 1969 but will soon be demolished, to say goodbye. There, they had a chance to walk the hallways of their former school one final time and pour over years’ worth of yearbooks, trophies, photos, and banners that would be auctioned off.
- Eames Way Elementary Students Fill Up Backpacks - Every classroom in Eames Way Elementary School filled backpacks up with school supplies to give to the Massachusetts School on Wheels. The school filled up a total of 53 backpacks, which it gave to the organization that provides academic support to the roughly 50,000 homeless children in public schools statewide. The project helped the young Eames Way students understand that not every child is privileged to start the school day prepared to learn.

Chalk Talk: Educational Jargon: Wait Time
Wait time refers to the time between a teacher answering a question and a student providing a response. It is very important to allow for adequate wait time to give every student the opportunity to answer questions. If a teacher calls on students whose hands fly up in the air right away, he/she will likely end up calling on the same students over and over again. Some students, especially those with learning disabilities, will need more time to think and process the question and their response. It would send a poor message to call on students immediately after asking questions, as it would reward students for being fast thinkers while not giving those who need a little bit of extra time a chance. This will sink these students’ confidence and result in them being afraid to participate. It is also important, when calling on a student whose hand was not raised, to give proper wait time so that he/she does not get flustered and especially since he/she had not participated willingly.
