Other subjects such as science, social studies, and foreign languages use frameworks that are of a similar style and which lay out the learning goals students should achieve each year.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mattapoisett District Curriculum
At Old Rochester, each content area is reviewed and subsequently revised on a three-year cycle. The district follows a Curriculum Revision and Renewal Cycle that involves five steps. First, “informed imagining” requires the development of an overall vision for the content area. The second step is to gather multiple forms of data. From the analysis of that data, any strengths and gaps need to be identified; relevant research should then be gathered as to how to repair the existing gaps. Next, there must be planning as to how the curriculum will be implemented, and then it will actually be incorporated.
Finally, the impact of the revised curriculum needs to be investigated using multiple sources of data. During the most recent school year, the district implemented the Go Math! and Reading Street programs, while the library media and science curricula were up for renewal. The Guiding Principles and Values that drive curriculum and instruction in the district include all students receiving a curriculum that is rigorous and incorporates social-emotional health, and that the curriculum be aligned to the Common Core Standards.
