Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lumberton Township District Curriculum
Students in Lumberton Township are held to the same rigorous standards of learning regardless of what district they attend. All three local districts have developed curricula according to the recommendations of the Common Core State Standards and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. As such, learning experiences at the elementary and middle school levels are aligned with those offered at the high school level and prepare younger students for continued academic success in high school.
The math curriculum focuses on more than just the ability to solve math problems. It also focuses on development of problem solving, critical thinking and analytical skills required to solve all kinds of problems, not just those in math class. In elementary school, students acquire problem-solving skills by using measurement and estimation to determine the size and volume of objects. The middle school curriculum helps students learn to use numerical and algebraic expressions to solve real-life mathematical problems. Meanwhile, the high school curriculum provides opportunities for students to develop reasoning skills that help them solve equations.

Chalk Talk: Writing a Better Essay
When students aren’t sure what to say in an essay or are unsure how to transition from one idea to the next, they often use filler words that detract from the overall quality of their essay. The popular phrase, “Since the beginning of time” is often found in historical essays. However, this phrase should never be used because it is extremely vague and impossible to prove. Another overused phrase is, “In my opinion.” Young writers, especially, seem to feel the need to qualify what they write with a statement that it’s their opinion. However, this is unnecessary and timid and should therefore be avoided. Lastly, the phrase, “I hope you liked my essay” should be eliminated. It is another timid statement that really says nothing, other than the writer isn’t confident in what they’ve written. Eliminating these overused phrases will make for a more powerful essay whose focus is on the content and not on the filler words.
