On March 8th, the BoE Curriculum Committee met with central office staff to review the district plans for roll out of the Common Core State Standards across Norwalk’s 19 schools. There are interesting changes afoot that will be made to both the Math and Language Arts curriculum. Math will focus on depth over breadth and will remove some content previously viewed as sacred in certain grades and will shift the content to other grades. Language Arts will see an more emphasis placed on non-fiction and informational texts and an increase in evidence based writing and vocabulary.
