Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Chatham District Curriculum
Monomoy Regional is working with the internationally renowned curriculum leader Jay McTighe, who co-wrote Understanding by Design. The main goal of the district’s curriculum plan is “developing students who can independently transfer their learning in new situations” and has developed “transfer [their learning in new situations] goals” for each content area. The frameworks used are the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks which provide detailed, sequential learning expectations in each subject and are turned into relevant and engaging classroom lessons for the students.
In English language arts, for instance, students should be able to independently use their learning to effectively express their ideas orally and in writing for a variety of purposes and audiences, develop a love for reading, read and comprehend texts of various complexities, understand the power of words, generate open-ended questions, and seek answers through critical analysis. Students also work together to outline rules that govern discussions, such as appropriate tone of voice to use and how to appropriately ask questions of other conversationalists.

Chalk Talk: Resume Do’s and Don’ts
A college resume is a quick reference guide listing a student’s extracurricular activities. A resume should never be longer than one page. Resumes should contain the student’s name and contact info centered at the top. The rest of the page should be divided between four to six groups of activities, arranged according to themes. It’s important to keep in mind that one page isn’t very long and can fill up very quickly. The activities listed should accomplish as much for the student as possible. So including clubs or sports might seem like a good idea, but including clubs in which the student is a leader or clubs that do community service and sports in which the student has won awards or achieved leadership roles are better. Long-term commitment is also good.
