Naturalization Ceremony- Marlton Elementary School fourth graders witness a naturalization ceremony as part of a social studies lesson on immigration. Five years ago a student's father who works for Homeland Security offered to conduct the event at the school so the students could witness it. Because it was such a powerful ceremony, it has become an annual event. This story includes social justice issues.
Seats Matter - Using an alternative seating approach, sixth and seventh graders at Jersey City’s Mahatma K. Gandhi School (PS 23) are allowed to select a seat that works best for their learning style. Students can choose from over 20 different seating options, including couches, soft chairs, bean bag chairs, yoga mats, standing desks, crate seats and stools.
Flipped Over Math - See a flipped classroom in action at Sandshore Road Elementary School in Mount Olive. A fourth and a fifth grade teacher flip their classes by recording lectures that the students watch at home and then help the students do their homework during class.
