Seals of Biliteracy Awarded To Class of 2019

Egg Harbor Township High School is proud to announce that the Class of 2019 is graduating with 92 Seals of Biliteracy. The Seal of Biliteracy is awarded by the NJDOE to graduating seniors who are proficient in both English and another language. New Jersey is one of 36 states to award the Seal of Biliteracy to graduating seniors. The seniors at EHTHS have demonstrated Intermediate-Mid or higher proficiency in 6 languages: Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Latin, and Spanish. Literacy for all is a district goal in Egg Harbor Township and so the World Languages curricula are designed to develop students’ literacy skills. This focus on literacy enabled 2/3 of the seniors graduating with the Seal of Biliteracy to be able to read and comprehend text in the language they’ve studied at the Advanced proficiency level, which is the highest they could possibly score on the proficiency assessment. Three of the seniors are graduating with two Seals of Biliteracy for having demonstrated proficiency in English and two additional languages. Congratulations to all!

Congratulations to seniors Sam Liang (Chinese & Spanish), Jarod Wille (German & Spanish), and Enmanuel Peña (Spanish & French) for graduating with two Seals of Biliteracy. All three seniors demonstrated proficiency in English and two additional languages.

AP Government Visits Somers Point to Teach Civics!

From Mr. Martirone


On Tuesday, June 11, 2019 students from the EHTHS’s AP Government & Politics classed teamed up with Megan Weimer’s ELL students at Jordan Road school. AP Government & Politics students are required by the College Board to complete a project that communicates their findings and experiences from class in a way that conveys or demonstrates their understanding of course content. The AP Students designed a 45-minute lessons ranging from civic duty to checks and balances. The AP students were required to develop a pre and post assessment of student understanding just like a real teacher.

The second part of the day included student groups playing a series of games via iCivics to more fully demonstrate their understanding of the morning’s lessons. iCivics is an organized founded by retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor to bring civics education alive for students of all ages and abilities. As a member of the iCivics teacher network I am given access to test out new games before they are launched to the general public. The AP students played with and competed against the Jordan Road students in games such as Responsibility Launcher, Power Play and Race to the White House. Civically engaged students now, will be civically active students later and our Civics Day was a first step at creating better citizens for the future.
