Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mashpee District Curriculum
For the elementary grade levels, Mashpee Public Schools have developed curriculum guides for each grade and content area. The guides include the essential guiding question, focus questions, learning expectations and goals, instructional strategies used, assessments, and materials for each unit. The curriculum guides for the middle school grades also outline the subject-specific skills and concepts that students use and need.
The district also provides a description of each high school course. Examples of unique high school courses that are offered include Race and Ethnic Relations, Since JFK, Sports in Society, and Maritime Literature. Since JFK is a particularly unique course, as it is 50 percent student-directed and involves no textbooks. Additional coursework in the following areas is available: business, performing arts, and career and technical education. Students may take advanced placement (AP) and honors courses.

Chalk Talk: Creating a Literate Environment in the Home
There are several ways parents can create a literate environment that fosters reading in the home. It is important to always have a variety of books and other reading materials on hand. They should be organized in one accessible place, such as in a bookshelf. A more affordable option is checking out books from the local library. It is a good idea to visit the library or bookstore regularly with your child. Allow children to select their own books based on their interests, but it is important to give them guidance when it comes to choosing books that are appropriate for their reading level. Parents can work with their child’s teacher or reading g specialist to determine reading levels. It is important to remember that no matter how busy your child is, practicing reading is the single most important thing for becoming a better reader. Set aside daily time for children to practice reading. Create a cozy, quiet area near the books for your children to read at.
