Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Carneys Point District Curriculum
The district uses the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards, which clearly describe what students are expected to learn and do at the end of each grade level and content area in order to be college- and career-ready; they are revised every five years. The state standards integrate the national standards, research-based practices in education, and student needs. The standards have been developed for all core content areas as well as 21st Century Life and Careers, the arts, and world languages.
The 21st Century Life and Careers standards spell out the skills and knowledge students must have in order to someday achieve success in the workforce in a global society. They focus on many communication, interpersonal, and self-directed learning traits. These standards include practices that students need to engage in to become career-ready (such as being adaptable and reflective), financial literacy, awareness and exploration of careers related to personal interests, and career and technical education.

Instead of students sitting in their desks with pencils and paper in whole-group lessons, they rotate through learning centers, where they receive small-group instruction, more individualized attention, and more opportunities to collaborate with peers.

Chalk Talk: Students’ Use of Individual School-Supplied Resources
Since technology is extremely necessary in today’s classrooms, many schools—particularly middle and high schools—supply each student with his/her own laptop, tablet, or other technological device for use for educational purposes for the school year. It is important to have strict and clear rules for how students use their devices and to remind them that, although the devices are theirs to use for the year, they are still owned by the school. Guidelines for one-to-one technology initiatives—as these are often called—can be modeled after the policies for the use of in-school technology, but since students have possession of them all the time, including at home, these guidelines must go a step farther. Of course, students must respect and take care of the devices as school property and must know that they will have to pay fines for any damage to hardware or software or any lost items.
