Norton District and Curriculum
Norton Public Schools consist of five schools and 2,800 students. Norton’s mission is, in partnership with families and the community, to provide students with a high-quality education that fosters all-around growth and allows students to be successful contributing members of a 21st century global society. Norton Pubic Schools have developed Curriculum and Content Maps for each grade level from K-5 and content area. The maps also provide lesson suggestions based on specific standards.
We currently cover the following Norton-area school district: Norton Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Norton District Curriculum
The English language arts curriculum maps begin by outlining the skills that each student is expected to master by the end of the school year in the literary areas of print concepts (such as understanding the organization of print), phonological awareness, phonics and word recognition, and fluency. The map then includes the Common Core State Standards for reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language.
The maps for math are organized by domains, which include operations and algebraic thinking, geometry, or data analysis. Underneath each domain are more-specific clusters; for instance, a geometry cluster is reasoning with shapes and their features. In data analysis, students learn different steps to perform statistical analyses of information. Finally, stemming from the clusters are the relevant standard(s), the objectives and skills, resources, and assessments. Norton’s Curriculum Office also updates parents with its own Twitter feed regarding changes or updates to learning expectations.

Chalk Talk: Common Core Standards: Reading the ELA Standards
The Common Core Standards begin with a brief introduction, followed by a description of the factors that were considered when designing the standards; for example, an integrated model of literacy in the English language arts standards. This is followed by information on what is not covered by the standards and a description of the skills college- and career-ready students have, which are focused on the standards. The standards for grades K-5 are the expectations for literacy across the curriculum, meaning that students are to apply the literacy skills in all content areas. The standards for grades 6-12 are broken down into two parts: the standards taught by secondary teachers and those covered by social studies and science or technical subjects.
