Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Scotch Plains District Curriculum
In the district, curriculum development is guided by two documents. First, the Common Core State Standards outline the knowledge and skills students should acquire at each grade level in math and language arts classes. Second, the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards provide benchmarks for learning at all grade levels in science, social studies, 21st Century life and careers, the arts, health and physical education, technology, and world languages.
A primary component of the 21st Century life and careers strand is career awareness and exploration. Throughout their schooling, students are given opportunities to learn more about the workforce in general, and more specifically about individual careers. In the elementary grades, students acquire an understanding of what general skills and knowledge are important for the world of work for both traditional and nontraditional jobs. In middle school, students explore 21st Century careers specifically, learning about how advanced knowledge of technology is a must-have for 21st Century workers.

Chalk Talk: How to Choose a College Major
Deciding what to study in college can be an incredibly daunting task, especially given how expensive college has become. Many students fear that waiting too long to choose a major will mean taking many unnecessary classes that add to the expense of a college education. However, choosing a major too soon can be just as detrimental as choosing one too late. Experts agree that spending the first year or two of college taking general education courses is a good way to get a feel for what you’d like to major in. Taking a variety of courses will help you identify your strengths and weaknesses, and will give you a chance to find the subject about which you are most passionate.
