Bourne District and Curriculum
Bourne Public Schools mission is to help students be successful, work with the community to cultivate student achievement, incorporate an evidence-based relevant curriculum, and expect universal accountability. Bourne Public Schools use the Common Core Standards. The district describes the many benefits of these standards: rigorous content that helps prepare students for college and their careers, clear and consistent standards, the requirement that students must apply what they have learned through higher order thinking, the extension of the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks, and evidence-based standards.
We currently cover the following Bourne-area school district: Bourne Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bourne District Curriculum
Students will read literature of various genres and types and of greater complexity. In writing, they must write logical arguments including relevant textual evidence and conduct research. Students will orally communicate more frequently—not only through formal presentations but also by informal class discussions in small-group and whole-class settings.
Bourne Public Schools have developed a K-12 Literacy Action Plan in order to form literate students capable of independently succeeding at their academic and life goals. The Literacy Action Plan is broken down into four components: the development and implementation of a relevant and researched standards-based curriculum that has consistent literacy expectations for students across all content levels, the use of assessment data to inform reading instruction, the consistent incorporation of Tier 1 interventions, and communication with parents and the community with regards to the district’s progress and as an invitation for feedback.

Chalk Talk: Book Review: “Chrysanthemum”
“Chrysanthemum,” written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes, is a book that, although does not outwardly discuss bullying, can be read to young children in an anti-bullying lesson. Before attending school for the first time, Chrysanthemum thought her name was perfect—that was until all her classmates made fun of her long, unique name. Then, Chrysanthemum felt terrible and began hating her name. Things changed when the teacher stuck up for Chrysanthemum, stating that she loved the name and that her first name was also that of a flower. The students all idolized their teacher and realized that there was nothing wrong with the name even though it was long and difficult to pronounce. Their teacher expertly modeled how to help someone being bullied. This is a very important concept—not just what to do if you are being bullied but how to react if someone else is. The book is understandable for primary school-aged children in helping them recognize how they can hurt people with their words and the power they have to help others who are hurting.
