Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glencoe District Curriculum
The English language arts curriculum helps children develop the foundational skills they need to be effective readers. Students learn about consonants and vowels, and how to correctly assign sounds to each letter of the alphabet. Children also learn to associate long and short sounds associated with vowels. Common words are introduced as well, with learners gaining the ability to read words such as ‘the,’ ‘is,’ ‘he,’ and ‘she’ by sight. Decoding one-syllable words is a skill acquired at this level as well.
Glencoe’s elementary social studies curriculum helps students explore various elements related to the study of people, places, and time. Learners find examples in history of an individual making a significant impact on the people of his or her time period, such as Galileo, Joan of Arc, Martin Luther King, and George Washington. The interaction between humans and the environment is explored as well. Students identify areas that were ideal for human settlements, such as areas along rivers, and compare how ancient river civilizations were similar and different in terms of their structure and function.

Chalk Talk: Preparing For College in Sophomore Year
As a student enters his sophomore year in high school, their thoughts turn more and more to college. To help keep them on track, here are some dates to keep in mind. Before beginning classes in the fall, the student needs to make sure that the classes they are taking, and the activities they participate, are challenging enough to help set them apart, while allowing success. If there are doubts, the teen should talk with parents and guidance counselors about any changes that may need to be made. The PSAT should be scheduled early in October. This would be considered a practice test. The ACT Plan, if offered can also be taken at this time. Both of these tests can be used as a baseline for national tests. In the second semester, students should begin planning the classes for their junior year, keeping in mind that, if comfortable with the choice, an AP class would be beneficial. SAT Subject Tests should be taken in May and June. Each of these items will help the student be prepared for the next step toward the college they desire.
