Beardstown District and Curriculum
Beardstown Community Unit School District uses a rigorous curriculum for all students and offers enhancements and supports to fit individual needs. In high school, career-preparatory courses are also available and students are encouraged to explore the electives. Students also have many extracurricular opportunities including community service. Service to others teaches students valuable perspectives and will lead to them being engaged, active citizens and members of their own community. Active, engaged learners who take control of their own learning are also more likely to have success later in life.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Beardstown District Curriculum
Beardstown Community Unit School District follows the Illinois Common Core Standards. It’s a competitive, rigorous curriculum intended to ensure that students receive a viable, strong education that will prepare them for life after high school, whether they pursue post-secondary education, enter the military, or directly enter the workforce. The learning objectives build in a progressive, scaffolded manner that allows students to use what they have previously learned to master new concepts.
In math classes, students memorize formulas but also study how and why the math works to ensure that they have a thorough understanding of mathematical principles on which to build. This means that they study fewer topics but study those topics in depth. In science classes, students study the world around them and advance to engineering problems. They use scientific processes to experiment in real-world situations and learn to evaluate their observations. In humanities classes, students read for understanding and to learn how to structure their opinions and thinking. They evaluate a variety of types of reading and learn to be effective communicators.

Chalk Talk: Updates to Textbooks
A recent change with textbooks is that they're not being used as frequently because learning has become more about exploring and being hands-on, not listening to the teacher lecture. Students still sit on the carpet together and work as groups, but they also collaborate on online Wikis and discussion boards from outside of school. Poster boards and dioramas have transformed into PowerPoint presentations, student-made videos, and digital stories. Libraries are not just about exploring books, but also discovering all the different digital media that exists and how to use it to locate information effectively. Chalkboards turned into white boards and then became SMART Boards. Today’s classrooms still have pencils, paper, physical textbooks, and lectures, but technology has added a completely new dynamic to education that has and will change it forever.
