Union County Public Schools is pleased to introduce Read with U, our new community-based reading initiative that pairs elementary students with community members like you.
Sign up to be a reading buddy this school year and spend 30 minutes per week reading with a first-grade student. If your business or organization would like to help students with reading, stay tuned for information about TutorMate, which will be introduced this fall at Title I elementary schools.
Read with U is easy as 1-2-3

When we first shifted away from traditional textbooks, to one-to-one laptops, it was a big adjustment for students, teachers, and parents. With the change, has come a positive outcome on student engagement. Traditionally, we followed the order of the textbook, the teacher taught and then that section of problems was assigned for HW. Now, the class Canvas page functions as the textbook and students are presented with various ways to interact with problems.
During the unit on Human/Civil Rights, students discovered the contributions of our Enlightenment philosophers to the idea of equality for all men. Students then were introduced to the infringements upon these Enlightenment ideas of equality and the atrocities men committed against men. Students studied the idea of genocide and discussed the eight stages of genocide through their knowledge of the Holocaust.
