Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Secaucus District Curriculum
The primary force behind the Secaucus curriculum is the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. These standards have been adopted state-wide and ensure that students in all districts receive similar instruction in the following seven areas: social studies, science, 21st Century life and careers, visual and performing arts, health and physical education, technology and world languages. The Common Core Standards also provide guidance for curriculum development.
In order to help students understand the complexities and inter-connectedness of life on Earth, the district has adopted a comprehensive life sciences curriculum. Students in elementary school study the essential functions the human body must undertake in order to survive, including respiration, digestion and circulatory functioning. The middle school curriculum focuses learning on how various systems in the human body, such as the central and peripheral nervous systems, are interrelated. High school students learn about the structure and function of cells and how they undertake the processes of growth.

Chalk Talk: How to Write a Better Essay
A well-written essay requires a lot of time and effort. But there are a few easy steps you can take to make the process easier on yourself and to ensure you get a better grade. First, try not to use the word “very.” It’s a dull and overused word that doesn’t really say much. Rather than saying, “Vietnam was a very long war,” just say, “Vietnam was a long war.” It’s cleaner and easier to read. Second, when writing your conclusion, never use the phrase “I hope you liked my essay.” Saying something like that gives the impression that you aren’t sure if you’ve made your point or been persuasive enough. The conclusion should instead end on a final, strong point that supports your argument. Finally, never use acronyms like LOL, OMG and IDK. Not only are they completely inappropriate in a formal essay, to many readers they are vague and meaningless. Keep your writing professional and save the LOLs for texting your friends!
