Educating Our Parents: Understanding the East Windsor Township District Curriculum
The East Windsor Regional School District has developed a set of standards-based curricula that govern what students learn at each grade level.

The New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards govern what is taught in the following subjects: science, social studies, world languages, technology, visual and performing arts, health and physical education, and 21st Century life and careers. Math and science curricula are developed using the Common Core State Standards as a guideline.

In elementary school, students learn about the social, emotional and physical benefits of regular physical activity. Kids also work on fine and gross motor skills through games and fitness exercises.

Chalk Talk: Students’ Technology Can Help Them Learn
Faculty and administration at many schools worry that the abundance of student cell phones, iPods and the like will interfere with their ability to learn. However, some schools have embraced their students’ technological prowess as a tool to help them learn. An excellent way to put students’ cell phones to good use is to have students use their phones as clickers. Rather than shelling out thousands of dollars for a classroom student response system, teachers can have students download an app that allows them to send multiple choice and true/false answers from their phone to their teacher’s computer. Another beneficial function of student cell phones is the onboard camera. A photo scavenger hunt is a great way to use this technology to help reinforce information from classroom learning by finding real-world examples. While student use of technology needs to be managed, there are benefits to having an abundance of technologies readily available.
