Wareham District and Curriculum
Wareham Public Schools consist of four schools and 3,100 students. Wareham also offers an alternative school for struggling students or those who dropped out of Wareham High School and seek a second chance, a school that provides therapeutic supports for students with special social emotional needs, and an early childhood center. The district’s vision is to provide students with a high-quality education that allows them to reach their full potential and to focus on the whole child, celebrating each student’s individual talents, interests, and diversity.
We currently cover the following Wareham-area school district: Wareham Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wareham District Curriculum
Wareham Public Schools use the Common Core State Standards—the national Common Core Standards infused with the 2011 Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. The district organizes its grade-level benchmarks and standards for each content area by drawing out the big ideas, the essential questions that guide the learning, the content that is taught, the learning objectives (based on Bloom’s Taxonomy), the instructional practices that are incorporated (included how learning is differentiated to address students’ diverse needs), the assessments (both formative and summative), and the resources and materials that are used.
The district uses a chart to portray the importance of the curriculum and instructional practices intertwining for student learning and achievement to take place. Lessons should start out with the “big” overarching ideas and the essential questions that describe what students should know and be able to do at the end of the lesson. Instructional methods and learning activities as well as assessments should be built around the big ideas, while the essential questions lead to the formation of the learning objectives.

Chalk Talk: The Role of Student Teachers
Student teaching is an exciting time for future teachers because it is usually the culminating semester for education majors, and they finally get to experience what being a teacher is actually like. One of the most important aspects, if not the most important, is the relationship that the student teacher develops with his/her cooperating teacher. Prior to beginning student teaching, the candidate should send an introductory letter to his/her cooperating teacher and ask if he/she would like to set up an observation of the class(es) and/or one-on-one meeting or phone conversation beforehand. It is vital to communicate with the cooperating teacher, checking with him/her before trying certain instructional techniques or activities and asking any questions that pop up. In fact, is only beneficial to the student teacher to ask questions about anything and everything. This will help them understand the school’s curriculum, clarify classroom management methods, find out information about individual students, and just learn about the profession in general from an experienced teacher.
