Brewster District and Curriculum
Nauset Public Schools offer a scope and sequence for how content should be delivered to students. The curriculum maps include unit names, summaries of the units (core ideas and curricular focuses), the enduring understandings that students are expected to gain, the essential questions that drive each unit and result in inquiry, the content that is taught and learned, the skills students should acquire, and the assessments used to show evidence of students meeting the standards. They are aligned both horizontally—across the classes in each grade level—and vertically—from one grade to the next. The district’s curriculum is based on an Understanding by Design framework.
We currently cover the following Brewster-area school district: Nauset Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Brewster District Curriculum
The high school science curriculum includes an in depth study of chemistry. Learners develop the ability to explain how elements form compounds. Types of bonding, including covalent and ionic, are examined as well. Students compare various organic compounds, such as sugars, fats, and hydrocarbons, and explore the similarities and differences between their structures. Molar mass is studied as well, with students acquiring the skills needed to calculate molar mass for a variety of chemical compounds.
Students acquire an understanding of vocabulary and conventions as part of the high school English language arts curriculum. Learners develop a number of strategies that help them better understand vocabulary concepts. Students learn Greek and Latin root phrases, which helps them determine the meaning of unfamiliar words. Learners also acquire the ability to use the context in which a word appears to make inferences about its meaning. Conventions of standard English are a topic of study as well.

Her former music teacher Tom Faris described Trainor as "tenacious" and that she knew she wanted to become a singer and put her all into that dream, writing songs for hours after school.

Chalk Talk: Guest Speakers
Bringing in guest speakers to talk to students is a great way to enhance a lesson or topic. Guest speakers can be summoned for anything from Holocaust survivors talking about what they went through at concentration camps during that time to wheelchair-bound individuals discouraging high school students from drinking and driving through their personal experiences. Guest speakers can speak to students during whole-school assemblies or in individual classrooms and can be engaging for students of all ages. Before teachers or administrators invite guest speakers, they should make sure their stories are relevant to the lessons being taught and that their stories would capture the attention of the students; otherwise, the speaker may feel as if he/she wasted his/her time. It is also a good idea for teachers to encourage students to come up with questions to ask the speaker ahead of time in order to make the sessions more interactive. They can also help guide guest speakers in the right direction if they are at all unsure. Guest speakers can help make content and experiences more personal and real in the eyes of students.
