Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Norfolk District Curriculum
Mathematics, within the K-12 curriculum, includes mathematical reasoning, critical thinking, and synthesizing of math concepts. Areas include geometry, numbers and number sense, algebra on a variety of levels, probability and statistics, and the higher math courses such as calculus and trigonometry. Students learn how to work with quantitative data and extrapolate practical uses from their mathematic problem-solving skills.
In Reading, there is also a comprehensive curriculum, and students are taught how to comprehend text as they are exposed to a variety of literature and genres. Fluency, the learning of new vocabulary, reading pace, and the ability to relate the text to past experiences and generate a discussion about the content are encouraged in order to become a successful and critical reader.

Chalk Talk: What Is Schema?
When children learn to read, it is always beneficial for them to make connections while they are reading. This aids in comprehension. When a student reads a passage of text, it is very important that they understand what it means by relying on past knowledge. This past knowledge, or foundation of knowledge, is schema. When students can apply schema to something being read, they are able to understand it much more effectively. This is why it is so important to expose students to vocabulary and to enrich their knowledge in all subject areas.
