Winter Haven District and Curriculum
Polk County Public Schools are comprised of schools from this Florida county. Polk County Public Schools K-12 Curriculum & Instruction team consists of four administrators who are senior directors in the areas of K-12 math, K-12 reading, school improvement, and k-12 science and accelerated programs. The district’s Curriculum and Instruction Initiative involves a four-stage cycle: planning for success, unit planning, teaching and learning, and checking progress.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Winter Haven District Curriculum
Each of the following academic curricular areas contains a director: secondary reading, elementary writing, elementary science, accelerated programs, elementary reading/language arts and social studies (two directors for ELA; one also handles social studies), secondary language arts, secondary science, elementary math, secondary world languages, academic competitions, K-12 physical education, and library media services (two individuals). These directors oversee that the language arts teaching supports learning and that math and science instruction is integrated.
The Language Arts curriculum also supports the student of literary work and creative writing. Students offer critiques of their readings, including how the author acknowledges conflicting viewpoints on his or her topic. Students also compare and contrast multiple authors on a single subject as well, developing a clear picture of how one’s perspective impacts the manner in which information is disseminated.

Chalk Talk: How New Teachers Can Share Their Ideas
New teachers are young and full of fresh ideas, but it can be very intimidating for them to share them with other teachers and their school principal. Older, more experienced teachers tend to be cemented in the methods they've used for years, while principles are consumed with meeting testing benchmarks. However, it is important for teachers to have a voice and be able to incorporate things they believe benefit their students, as long as they align with the curriculum. If a teacher wants to bring up an innovative teaching idea or method up to the principal, he/she must first make sure it is relevant to the standards. If it is, he/she would be wise to present research or evidence that proves the strategy works in the classroom; using research-based practices are very important. It is risky to try out new "out there" techniques without first consulting with the principal.
