Ramsey Review

January 11, 2019

Thank You Board of Education!

Ramsey's Board of Education plays an essential role in our students’ lives. They oversee our five public schools and provide educational services to nearly 2,800 children. They set the policies for our schools and make important decisions affecting curriculum, financing and staffing. Ramsey School Board members devote countless hours – with no compensation – to the oversight and advancement of our children’s education.

January 2019 is the 15th annual School Board Recognition Month in New Jersey, a time to raise public awareness of the role and responsibilities of local boards of education and to thank our community’s school board members for their efforts. Click here to view the resolution thanking them.

Teaching and Learning Column

By Andrew Matteo, Director of Curriculum

Teaching for Understanding in Elementary Math

Students in Ms. Bivona's 1st grade class at Hubbard using scales to explore subtraction and the meaning of the equal sign. This concrete modeling is the first of a three stage process, Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract (CPA), used to foster deep understanding of mathematical concepts.

Teaching for Understanding in Middle School Science

Ms. Jadamiec, 7th grade science teacher, was chosen to participate in a research study examining the use of lesson analysis to promote the three-dimensional teaching called for by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

Teaching for Understanding in High School Design Drawing

A senior in Mr. Manzo's Design Drawing class presenting his 1/4 scale model of his design. He was given feedback on the accuracy of the scale, his presentation skills, craftsmanship, overall appearance of device, and overall presentation. Students will then use this feedback in designing their full-scale model.
