Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Granite City District Curriculum
One major curricular goal is that students are expected to be responsible individuals who treat themselves and others with respect, show ethical behavior, and make appropriate decisions for their own physical and emotional health. Because our world is becoming increasingly global, students must be able to compete on a global level, which means they must demonstrate respect for different individuals, cultures, and races.
In English Language Arts, students read nonfiction and complex texts for comprehension and synthesis. They collect, organize, analyze, and retain information in order to develop theses and support them with evidence. They also build vocabulary. Students become effective communicators who speak effectively and write clearly and expressively. In science classes, students are encouraged to use critical and analytic thinking to solve problems, to evaluate and refine strategies to solve problems, and to be able to apply this acquired knowledge.

Chalk Talk: Letters of Recommendation
Most colleges want one or two recommendations from applicants. Some don’t require any but recommend one or two. Some require three. These recommendations should come from current or recent teachers who’ve taught the student in 11th or 12th grade. Any additional recommendations should be considered carefully. If it was requested by the college, for example to fulfill a requirement for a scholarship application, then obviously it’s a good idea. But too many recommendations create extra work for students and admissions staff and may not serve much of a purpose. Getting a recommendation from a college alumna might sound like a good idea, but unless that alumna is connected to the college in a meaningful, active way, this recommendation won’t accomplish much. Likewise, a blanket, general recommendation from a “celebrity” or seemingly notable person who doesn’t actually know very much about the applicant will simply be “white noise” for the admissions committee.
