Mr. Daniel McMahon
Mr. McMahon is a graduate of Montclair State University and believes in the Manville Language Arts Curriculum. The curriculum and his classroom is designed so all students are given the opportunity to reach his/her educational potential. The program is based on the Balanced Literacy approach that enables students to think logically, creatively, and critically while expressing ideas in spoken, written and non-verbal forms of communication. Through the use of this program students will be able to organize, evaluate and apply information. Students will be actively engaged through differentiated instruction in meaningful and purposeful reading and writing experiences on a daily basis. Students’ progress will be monitored using state recommended rubrics, portfolios, and authentic assessment. Our program is intended to support the learning of all students through challenging activities that bring students to higher levels of performance.
