Batavia District and Curriculum
The curriculum follows the Illinois Common Core Standards which establish a clear set of expectations for what students should know in English language arts and mathematics by the end of each grade level, and requires that all students meet similarly high standards. The Common Core is a rigorous curriculum that emphasizes skills that students need to succeed in post-secondary education and the professional world and is internationally competitive so that students will be well-equipped to compete in today’s global economy.
We currently cover the following Batavia-area school district: Batavia Unified School District 101.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Batavia District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, students become critical readers and persuasive writers by reading nonfiction and writing analytic essays in order to develop the ability to gather information and use evidence to support their claims while also expanding their vocabularies. They are taught to write using a process that includes brainstorming and outlining, writing, revising and editing, and presenting their work. With the increased use of technology, the presentation phase has allowed students more options to learn with and from.
In Mathematics, the curriculum emphasizes a smaller number of topics which are explored in depth, rather than a broad range of skimmed topics. The curriculum begins with basic, key ideas like numbers and order of operation, so students gain mastery of the foundations of mathematics before progressing to more advanced concepts in high school. Students are given opportunities to apply their math knowledge to real-world situations and challenges.

Chalk Talk: College Resumes
Many students are lost when it comes to creating a college resume because they don’t have very many, or any, work experiences, but it’s important to remember the purpose of a college resume, which is to create an easy to access fact sheet containing an applicant’s extra-curricular activities, as well as work and volunteer experiences. Resumes can be formatted in different ways, but the purpose is readability. The resume should be one page long and no longer. It should feature the applicant’s name, address and contact info, and GPA at the top, typically centered. The activities should be grouped according to major themes such as Work Experience, Volunteer Opportunities, Leadership, etc. A good rule of thumb is to only include activities that demonstrate more than one positive element or quality of the applicant. So sports are fine, but if space is an issue, only include sports that have played long-term, or that led to honors or leadership.
