Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Vernon Township District Curriculum
The Vernon Township School District uses the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards to guide their curriculum development. In order to advance to the next grade level, students must demonstrate proficiency in science, social studies, world languages, technology, visual and performing arts, health and physical education, and 21st Century life and careers. Standards for math and language arts are governed by the Common Core Standards.
The language arts curriculum prepares students for post-secondary education and careers through the use of evidence-based standards aligned with the expectations of college and the workplace. Students learn to read, write, speak and listen in their language arts classes, and acquire the tools they need to apply that learning in other content areas. By providing students the skills to synthesize information from various sources and identify key details, they will graduate with an excellent foundation to be effective communicators.

Chalk Talk: Phrases to Never Use in Essays
Writing essays can be a tough task for most students. In times of desperation they might resort to clichéd terms that make their teacher’s lip curl. Phrases like, “Since the beginning of time” are incredibly vague and extremely difficult to prove. Words like “things” and “stuff” should never be used – there are much more specific and powerful words to use in their place. Beginning an essay with the term, “My paper is going to be about” is perhaps the most grave of all phrase-related mistakes. The paper should speak for itself! Don’t let your child tell the reader what they will be telling the reader in the essay. Lastly, shorthand phrases like “LOL,” “OMG” and “IDK” should never, ever be allowed in an essay. They are fine for texting, but for academic writing stick to actual words.
