Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Westwood District Curriculum
Two sets of standards guide curriculum development in the Westwood Regional and Bergen County school districts. The Common Core State Standards outline what students should learn and know in math and language arts classes. The New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards provide similar guidance for seven core subject areas: world languages, technology, visual and performing arts, 21st Century life and careers, health and physical education, science and social studies.
Students at all grade levels take part in the 21st Century life and career curriculum. The media and communication strand gives students insight into the use of media and tools for communication in the modern world. Students identify ways in which technology can be used for communication, and examine the ways in which media can be used in unethical ways. Students analyze the role of digital communications in facilitating cultural, social and political change. Government censorship and regulation is examined, and students identify ways in which these efforts protect citizens from danger when using digital communications devices.

Chalk Talk: Three Tips for Writing a College Essay
Getting into the college of choice is an important milestone for your child. But before they are admitted, they must impress the admissions counselor. A great way to do that is by writing a well-written and interesting college essay. In order to make that happen, your child needs to bear three things in mind. First, they need to be smart, without coming off as a know-it-all. Encourage your child to discuss the subjects and topics they find most interesting and why, rather than focusing on the grades and awards they’ve gotten. Second, your child should insert a little bit of humor into their essay, but not overdo it. Poking fun at themselves is a great way to show some humility and personality. Lastly, your child’s essay should tell a story about who they are. Recommend language that is vivid and conveys emotion. Essays that exhibit these personal touches will leave a good impression upon admissions counselors.
