Norfolk District and Curriculum
King Philip Regional School District serves students who reside in Norfolk, Plainville, and Wrentham. The schools follow the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks which focuses on the major topics of each subject and deepens students knowledge in them each year. One requirement for graduation is that seniors complete a senior project. They may create a project around school issues, such as bullying, cliques, funding for art and music programs, or mentoring programs. A final example is for students to get hands-on experience in a job they may someday pursue, such as teaching a mini-lesson they design in an elementary classroom.
We currently cover the following Norfolk-area school district: King Philip Regional School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Norfolk District Curriculum
The Math curriculum instills fundamentals during the elementary years. The beginnings of addition and subtraction are also begun, with learners developing the ability to find the difference or sum of numbers from zero to 10. Given a variety of non-sequential whole numbers, students learn how to properly put them in numerical order from smallest to largest. Once students understand how they can manipulate numbers they are more able to predict mathematic outcomes.
The philosophy of King Phillip Middle School’s English language arts department is to cultivate learners engaged in the processes of reading, writing, speaking, and listening. These literary processes are vital because they allow students to be independent readers and writers, build strong content knowledge, write for a variety of purposes and audiences, critique others, value evidence, understand multiple perspectives and cultures, and effectively use technology and digital media. Students participate in writing activities that expose them to a variety of kinds of writing, for a number of different purposes.

Chalk Talk: Dual Degrees in Education
Education provides an opportunity for students to earn dual degrees and have some flexibility in their career choices. First of all, anyone who pursues secondary education will have two degrees: one in education and the other in the content area he/she chooses to specialize in. This gives the individual multiple career options. For instance, a secondary history major can teach history or become a historian. Another popular dual degree in education is the elementary-early childhood combination. Those who would like to teach at the elementary level and also enjoy working with infants, toddlers, and very young children can pursue this dual degree. This gives them the opportunity to work and teach in daycares, preschools, and early childhood centers, which is important with the lack of teaching jobs that exists in parts of the U.S. Those who pursue dual degrees will have to be committed to earning extra credits and putting in more time—possibly having to attend a summer session—but it will be worth it with the extra flexibility they will gain.
