Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Chicago District Curriculum

Another popular curricular choice for many Chicago Public School children is the magnet program. This involves parents and children selecting to attend a school that specializes in a particular educational style. Right now, Chicago Public Schools offers a Montessori program, Paideia program, and an Agricultural Sciences center. The Montessori classroom is multi-age and is for students who thrive in a creative environment. The Paideia program is best for students who learn well by a Socratic method.

Chicago Public Schools also places priority on students learning rigorous math and science while combining that technical work with arts and creativity to best meet the needs of their students. The Chicago Math curriculum that has been adopted by districts around the country was created by the educators in the Chicago Public Schools.

Chicago District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

Chicago Public Schools are involved in several curriculum programs in the elementary, middle, and high school levels. One of the newest programs is the IB Wall to Wall program that is organized by the International Baccalaureate group in Switzerland. This program provides a rigorous globally focused education for children in elementary school through high school. The program culminates with an intense diploma program focusing on a student-selected cultural diverse study that involves community volunteering and an intense portfolio of work.

We currently cover the following Chicago-area school district: Chicago Public Schools.

Chalk Talk: How to Ask for a Letter of Recommendation

As high school seniors prepare for college, they find that they need letters of recommendations from their teachers. Unfortunately, many of them do not know how to ask for a letter of recommendation. Students should only ask teachers that they know well and have an establish relationship with. Students should be prepared with a resume of accomplishments so the teacher knows specifically what to include in the letter. If possible, students should also provide the teacher with documents from the colleges with requirements for the letter. If the college documents require the student to fill out information, those sections should be completed by the student before the documents are given to the teacher. It is also very important to ask nicely while giving the teacher plenty of time and a few friendly reminders, too.
