Curriculum Fair and Q&A Roundtable Sessions Whether you are looking for innovative curriculum ideas or information related to district operations, you will have an opportunity on Thursday, October 27, at Workshop to speak to experts during the morning and afternoon sessions of the Curriculum Fair and Question and Answer Roundtable sessions.
During the Curriculum Fair sessions, administrators and teachers from districts around the state present their exemplary and innovative programs in an informal roundtable format. On the other side of the curtain, at the Q&A Roundtables, consultants, administrators, and NJSBA staff discuss matters of school operations, issues, programs and management.
Some of the Curriculum Fair topics scheduled for this year include project-based learning; English as a second language; linking science and social studies; character education; open-ended math questions; family literacy; how to beat the state tests; and environmental studies.
Some topics covered at the Q&A Roundtable sessions include money savings on telecommunications; apprenticeship programs; assessing security needs; school buildings of the future; negotiations and labor relations issues; inclusion; redistricting; video conferencing for homebound students; and bullying.
When you get to Atlantic City, check the Workshop program book for a complete description.
Workshop Housing Workshop is quickly approaching and NJSBA is pleased that registration is running ahead of last year. Our block of rooms through the Atlantic City Housing Bureau is again a sell-out. As you know processing your reservations through this approved system permits us to enjoy the benefits of a coordinated housing and transportation system. The hotels and the shuttle bus company rely on our anticipated registrants and exhibitors to establish the correct number of rooms in our block, hotel costs, shuttle bus capacity and service. Registrants that deal directly with hotels and do not use the Atlantic City Housing Bureau to reserve rooms severely impact the number of rooms set aside each year for Workshop and the Association’s purchasing power for room rates, shuttle bus costs, and other hotel services.
