Though they have some flexibility in differentiating their lesson plans to suit the specific needs of students, the focus is on establishing a base of knowledge and growing it.

Chalk Talk: Resume Do's and Don'ts
When it comes to a resume, many students are in uncharted territory. It can seem like a daunting task to distill ones activities and experience down to one page, but it’s not as difficult as it seems. Here are a few key ideas to remember about resumes: 1) It should be one page only, 2) The student’s name, contact information, and GPA should be at the top, usually centered, 3) Activities should be grouped under various themes such as “Community Service” and “Leadership” 4) Think about the content of each section you add. What will each item tell the admissions committee about you as a person and student? Students will often add activities that don’t serve much of a purpose. If an activity can demonstrate multiple qualities you have, then it’s probably much more useful to add, 5) Don’t pad it. Adding every club or sport you’ve ever been a part of might seem impressive, but awards, etc. in those clubs or athletics might be more useful.
