CLARK, NJ - In Kelly Williamson’s fifth grade class at Valley Road Elementary, students have been studying point of view in writing and in reading by participating in a variety of activities.  In one activity, students wrote a story from the point of view of a snowman that was melting on the first day of spring. In another, students rewrote Cinderella from the point of view of another character. 

 
The points of view are first person, second person, third person limited, and third person omniscient.
 
 
In a reading activity, students worked together to read several passages and acted like detectives to find clues that helped them determine the point of view. Ideas and answers were shared with the class as "evidence" was presented.

Politics IS Government in Union County

April 21, 2018

After Bruce Patrson of Garwood was stopped from speaking at the Union County freeholder meeting of March 22 regarding the politics behind refusing to give the party line to a sitting freeholder I thought this brazen suppression of free speech could not go unanswered.
