The Woodmont faculty mentors our children for the challenges of the 21st Century. We prepare them for the rigors of the New Jersey Student Learning Standards and the New Jersey Model Curriculum. We utilize feedback provided by PARCC results to revise and drive instruction. We plan lessons which address a variety of learning modalities and interests. We incorporate technology to enhance the curriculum and challenge all learners. Faculty administer i-Ready assessments four times a year. The data gleaned from our assessments drive instruction and provide faculty with information to best meet their students’ needs. Teachers differentiate instruction and provide each student with what they require to succeed. Primary and Intermediate teachers base instruction on thematic and integrated units of study. The successful utilization of cooperative learning strategies, a literature based reading program, Lucy Calkins writing units of study and learning centers provide an exciting educational environment. Teachers construct lessons that promote analytical, problem-solving skills, writing across the content areas, and learning how to apply the scientific method when conducting experiments. A guided math model drives instruction. Faculty challenge students at their level of understanding and promote best practices to drive students upwards. Students integrate technology via Google Chromebooks and IPADS to improve research skills and learning. Students participate in video streaming, web quests, document sharing via Google drive, and faculty employs SMART Boards as part of daily practice.
