Charleston District and Curriculum
The curriculum is based on the Illinois Common Core standards. The mission of District 1 is to ensure that students receive a quality, rigorous education regardless of where they live, how they learn, their economic background, race, or gender. The curriculum establishes a clear set of expectations for what students should know in English language arts and mathematics at the end of each grade level and requires that all students meet similarly high standards. The curriculum also emphasizes skills that students need to succeed in college and the professional world and is benchmarked with international standards, so that students will be well-prepared to compete in today’s global economy, whether they pursue post-secondary education or immediately enter the workforce.
We currently cover the following Charleston-area school district: Charleston School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Charleston District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, the curriculum emphasizes reading nonfiction, writing analytical essays, and
working with complex texts in order to develop students’ information gathering ability and their ability to use evidence to back their claims while also expanding their vocabularies. Students do read fiction and write creatively, but the curriculum emphasizes nonfiction and analytic writing in order to teach students how to be critical readers and persuasive writers.
In Mathematics, the curriculum encourages a greater depth of instruction on fewer topics within a school year. Beginning at the elementary school level, concepts like numbers and operations are taught so that students master the foundations of mathematics before moving on to more advanced topics in high school. The hope is that students will be able to apply their math skills to real world problems and challenges and draw upon their mathematic reasoning skills.

Chalk Talk: Time Management
One of the challenges college students face is time management. For some new college students, adjusting to the freedom of a college setting can be difficult. The problem isn’t always a lack of study time, but an overabundance of unstructured time. High school students are used to a more heavily structured day in which as many as seven classes meet, along with activities, sports, and other commitments. At college, they might have three or four classes in a day and few, if any, other commitments. Granted, the classes often last as much as twice as long as high school classes, but the lack of structured time is still an issue for many students. Being aware of this is the first step towards preventing problems. Students must structure their own time, seek out help with assignments as needed, and seek out clubs and activities to help ease their transition to college.
