Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Passaic District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, the curriculum focuses on the major areas of Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking and Language. The elementary program is strongly based in phonics and students read a variety of materials including poetry, fiction, non-fiction and drama. Middle school students learn to see literature as a doorway to learning about the human condition and are encouraged to develop their own style and opinions through writing. High school students learn to analyze literature as well as their own writing and have the opportunity to take classes in drama, journalism and creative writing.
With Math, the elementary schools work from the Everyday Mathematics curriculum which stresses differentiated instruction and the use of multiple materials. Students learn basic math operations plus fractions, measurement and geometry. The middle schools use the Connected Mathematics curriculum where pre-algebra and algebra is a major focus.

Chalk Talk: The Benefits of the Peer Tutoring Model
When students are allowed to tutor each other in the classroom, several positive outcomes are the result. When a student assumes a teaching role, they are building their own understanding of the material. The students receiving assistance from their peers often respond favorably to the instruction of a person who is more like them and the instruction is usually likely to be more “on their level” of understanding. Also, those students put in the instructor role very often gets a boost to their self-esteem. In addition, social relationships among the students were seen to improve. The peer-tutoring method is a useful and beneficial way to differentiate instruction in the classroom and can be used with students of any age.
