Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Galesburg District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, students read nonfiction and complex texts for comprehension and synthesis of ideas. They collect and organize information, analyze ideas and present specific examples to support their arguments. Students should be effective communicators, both in the written and spoken word. In mathematics, students are expected to be critical thinkers, as well, to use critical and analytical thinking to solve problems as well as evaluating and refining strategies for solving these problems.
In a larger sense, students are taught to be responsible individuals who demonstrate ethical behavior, accept responsibility for their actions, and make good choice for physical and emotional health. Students are expected to become socially responsible members of the larger, global community who show respect for individuals, culture, races, and genders other than their own in addition to exercising the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.

Chalk Talk: The College Resume
A common cry of college students, when asked to create a resume, is “I don’t have any work experience!” The reality is that the college resume isn’t quite the same as a career resume. College resumes should be populated with activities, accomplishments, examples of community service, and information that reflects a student’s extra-curricular activities. College resumes are a page long, no longer. They are a basic fact sheet for college admissions counselors to refer to when considering a student’s application. The format of these resumes varies, but certain themes should always remain. The name, address, and GPA should be at the top of the resume, usually centered. Below that, activities are grouped according to various topics such as “Leadership Activities” and “Community Service.” Some students will attempt to add hobbies or travel experiences, but these might not be worth putting on a resume. A good rule of thumb is that if an activity can do “double-duty” for a student, include it; this means that the activity can demonstrate at least two strong, positive qualities that colleges are interested in.
