Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Braidwood District Curriculum
Primary goals of the curriculum include that every student will learn to read well, read often, and enjoy reading through a partnership of family support and meaningful classroom instruction. The district understands that reading isn’t just a pastime or an antiquated idea; it teaches students how to think critically and gives them knowledge they will need to succeed in life. Students read a variety of types of things, from novels to nonfiction in print and digital formats. They also learn the different ways to approach analyzing various genre.
Another goal of the curriculum is for every student to become a self-directed, independent learner through teaching study skills, homework practices that build study habits, and by supporting parental involvement in their child’s education. Students who take control of their own learning are more likely to achieve success later in their post-secondary pursuits. The third goal is for every student to develop a sense of responsibility and respect for themselves and others through consistent direction and support from the family and the school.

Chalk Talk: Community Colleges
Community colleges are a great alternative path for many students with the goal of attending a four year college. They tend to be smaller than universities, which means that they offer smaller class sizes, specifically in the areas that tend to have the largest class sizes at 4-year universities. This can be of great use to a struggling student. They are also very affordable, often costing a tenth of what even a public university costs. Most community colleges offer reciprocity with various 4-year colleges, which means students can transfer easily. The curricula of community college classes are also rigorous and often follow 4-year classes, so this is rarely an issue, also.
