Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hamilton Township District Curriculum
The Common Core State Standards, which have been adopted by districts across the nation, outline student learning at each grade level in math and language arts. The New Jersey state standards provide similar guidance for curriculum development in seven core areas: the arts, technology, 21st Century life and careers, world languages, health and physical education, social studies and science.
The world languages curriculum is designed to provide students with the understanding of a foreign language, but also seeks to provide learners with an appreciation of different cultures and perspectives. Students begin studying Spanish in the second grade, where they learn how to speak and read basic classroom commands, greetings and names of friends and family. In middle school, students advance their understanding of Spanish by acquiring the skills necessary to analyze the parts of speech, evaluate the components of a sentence and infer the meaning of unfamiliar words using their context in Spanish.

Chalk Talk: Peer Mediation Improves School Environment
With a recent rise in bullying and other negative behaviors in schools, some districts are turning to the students themselves for help. Peer mediation programs get students who are positive role models involved in the process of addressing the negative behavior of their peers. After undergoing training in mediation, peer mediators work in pairs (and always with an adult present) to address any negative behaviors they see. During times when bullying and fighting usually occur - passing periods, at lunch and at recess – student mediators patrol the area to make themselves available for conflict resolution. Mediators make every effort to calm their peers down, discuss alternatives and offer non-violent solutions to their problems. The result? Schools with peer mediation programs have seen a drastic reduction in bullying, fighting and other negative behaviors.
