Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Harwich District Curriculum
Monomoy Regional School District offers a comprehensive curriculum that is collaborative; project-based; interdisciplinary; and fosters creativity, independent thinking, and resiliency. 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, and generate open-ended questions and seek answers through critical analysis.
The curriculum enables students to build content knowledge, make meaning, and apply learning to new situations. 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 subject.

Chalk Talk: Dealing with School Refusal
It is not unusual, during a child’s life, for there to be times when they do not want to go back to school. When this happens, a natural reaction may be to be disrespectful or cross. Instead parents should help them to explain why they feel like this. See if they have been made angry or scared. When the parent understands, it is easier to help the child work through this time. Parents should also reassure the child that the feeling real and see if they can brainstorm some ways to help this to change. This may not be an overnight solution, but it does give them ideas of things they can do themselves to improve the circumstance. After this ask them about the parts of the day that went well. This will help them to see the positives they would miss if they did not go back. After the discussion, give the child reassurance that they have been heard and then talk about something else to show confidence in their decision. This process is helping the child gain self-confidence in their life.
