West Bridgewater Middle-Senior High School has the following academic school-wide expectations of its students: reading actively and critically for various purposes, writing effectively, listening critically, communicating clearly, using a variety of resources to locate information, and utilizing multiple strategies when problem solving. The Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks has been developed to provide a scope and sequence of skills in each subject to achieve the overarching learning goals and ensure students are prepared for post-secondary life.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Bridgewater District Curriculum
West Bridgewater Public Schools has designed a rubric that outlines the criteria students must meet in each of these individual academic expectations. Scores in each category range from one—the learner barely meets the standards or doesn’t at all—to five—the student exceeds expectations. For example, a student who receives a score of one in “reading actively and critically” shows limited comprehension of the main ideas of a text and provides few or inappropriate supporting evidence.
A student who earns a score of five in this category demonstrates a deep comprehension of both the surface themes and underlying ideas of a work and is able to make inferences and connections to previous readings and experiences—both orally and in writing. Each expectation also has a desired learner outcome attached; for example, for writing effectively, the student “is able to write using standard English for a variety of purposes and audiences.” The schools use intervention specialists who perform a similar role to reading specialists in other content areas.

Chalk Talk: Geography at Home
Geographic knowledge is not difficult to include in the home surrounding. Geography can help build empathy for events that take place around the world. Simply by adding a wall map in the house can help enrich the child’s knowledge. As they hear about events from different areas, they can be encouraged to find the location on the map and then to mark it with a pushpin. This same map can be used to mark places the child has been or to plan a vacation in the future. Another way to bring geography into the home is to eat an authentic food from a different culture. This could occur once a month or even once a week. A fun family activity involving geography is geocaching. This is a treasure hunting adventure using GPS. The family goes to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then find the Geocache, which is a container that has been hidden. There is an organization called Geocaching.com which offers memberships for free.
