The Media Program in the Braintree Public Schools supports students to develop a love of reading. Students and faculty have access to a variety of print and digital resources.

Elementary School

In the elementary schools, students have media class once a week. During this time students can check out a book to take home and participate in a lesson. Media teachers help students select a book that is “just right” for them based on topic and level. They also help students interact with books and lead discussions about what students are reading or do read alouds. Curriculum includes some topics from the Massachusetts Digital Literacy and Computer Science Framework and also connects to what students are learning in their other academics. Students learn safe and appropriate use of the library space and technology. They are introduced to many aspects of the Google Suite to help complete technology-based assignments in classes. Internet safety and best practices for technology are emphasized throughout.

Middle School & Braintree High School

Students do not have a specific media class at the secondary level. At times classes visit the media center or students are able to go during a study hall. Media specialists support teachers and students in research, both digitally and with print resources.
