Under the Education Reform Act of 1993, seven core academic areas make up what are called the Curriculum Frameworks: Arts, English, Health, Math, Science, Social Studies, and World Languages. The curriculum frameworks are designed for teachers to use in preparing their lesson plans, and for districts to use in planning local curricula and are considered key areas of learning required of all students in Massachusetts at the elementary level.
