Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Downers Grove District Curriculum

In Mathematics, the Common Core encourages a greater depth of instruction on fewer topics within a school year. Beginning at the elementary school level, basic concepts like numbers and operations are emphasized so that students master the foundations of mathematics before moving onto more advanced topics in middle school and high school. The hope is that students will be able to apply their math skills to real world problems.

The Science curriculum is based on the Next Generation Science Standards. Beginning in elementary school, the focus is on foundational concepts to begin an observation and study of the world around us. Once these elements have been established, students advance to science and engineering studies in high school. In English Language Arts, the emphasis is on reading nonfiction, writing analytical essays, and studying more complex texts which develop students’ ability to gather information and use evidence to back their claims.

Chalk Talk: Types of College Applications

There are four main types of college applications. Regular Decision is the most common. This is exactly what it sounds like; students apply normally. Often, the deadline is December 1st, but it can be later. The drawback for some applicants is that colleges won’t read the application until the deadline, so even if a student sends in an application much earlier, it won’t be read until that deadline. One of the most controversial types of application is the Early Decision (ED) application. With ED applications, students, parents, and college counselors all sign a contract saying that the student will attend this college if accepted. A third type is Early Action (EA). This is similar to ED but non-binding, so the student gets the benefit of an early application but without the binding contract. EA isn’t as helpful to borderline students as ED is because it doesn’t demonstrate interest as strongly as ED does. The fourth type is Rolling admissions. Rolling simply means that the college reads the application as soon as it is received, rather than waiting for the deadline to pass.
