Saturday Curriculum Meeting- May 10

The Curriculum Committee met for 6 hours today at Hoboken High School (9AM-3PM). The primary goal was to formulate a final version of the K-12 Curriculum Mapping for the new District Curriculum. For the first time this year we worked in content specific groups to address vertical alignment of the curriculum. Edits were made to previous drafts and some areas received significant reformulations. Content specific groups included Mathematics, Science, Language, Social Studies, and English. This leaves the areas of Music, Art, Physical Education and Career Education yet to be finalized. While we were all expecting to have this past us by this point, the involvement of many teachers across many grade levels is proving to be a major strength and deserves the time allocated. We are anticipating all mapping to be finished by the middle of May.
