2009 Summer Curriculum Committee Day 8
Day 8 of the 2009 Summer Curriculum Committee marked the end of the second week of meetings for the group. Today
Technology continued it's identification of technology integration in the subject areas.
Supervisors Kate Kermarsky and Howard McKenzie reviewed district assessments and linking of "Big Ideas" and Essential Question in mathematics and social studies.
The group also took time to celebrate the end of the week with a pizza lunch and refreshments (at no expense to the taxpayers of Hoboken).
The 2009 Summer Curriculum Committee is currently ahead of schedule and below budget. Details will follow in an upcoming post. -Dr. Petrosino
Disclaimer: The 2009 Summer Curriculum Committee is roughly 50% the size of the 2008 Summer Curriculum Committee (29 teachers vs 60 teachers) and the budget allocated is approximately 2/3 less than the allocation for Summer 2008. Dr. Petrosino has explained numerous times that this represents a significant reduction in both expenditures and faculty involved with the curriculum project.
