Curriculum information and School Improvement Plan
Chief Brodie Memorial Elementary School uses the newly adopted Common Core State Standards and DOE K-5 Content Standards and Performance Indicators to guide curriculum and instruction. Teachers are expected to create their instructional units, lessons plans, and assessments according to these standards.
Teachers provide a variety of strategies and activities to meet the needs of different level learners. Teachers are encouraged to teach using the integrated curriculum model. The school used the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) to monitor and assess student progress in Reading. In addition to the basic subject areas, all students are provided instruction in the Chamorro language. Chamorro is part of the daily instructional schedule.
Chief Brodie Memorial Elementary School provides special instruction for identified youngsters. We provide resource room assistance for children with special needs and challenging, higher level instruction for children who are identified with exceptional talents and abilities. Teachers provide our ESL (English as a Second Language) students with modified instruction to assist with English language proficiency.
