Curriculum Committee- Saturday October 11

Today marked the first Saturday meeting for the Hoboken Curriculum Project. The Committee reformed in groups that were developed this past summer and picked up where things were left off in late August. Committees on the Language Arts, Science, Technology, Mathematics, Social Studies, and "specials" met in Brandt on a beautiful fall day from 9AM to 3PM. Among the many new activites ondertaken today included initial work on the Holocaust curriculum for the first grade. The team is utilizing the developed curriculum mapping to integrate children's literature as well as other activities across the curriculum for each month. The guides provided to the group by the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education have proven to be very helpful and interesting.
