Hampshire District and Curriculum
Community Unit School District 300 curriculum follows the Illinois Learning Standards, which are rigorous and comprehensive standards that establish what students need to learn in classes, but don’t tell teachers how to teach those classes. The Illinois Learning Standards also include age-appropriate expectations for Social Emotional Learning and College and Career Readiness. Teachers are free to craft lesson plans to meet the unique needs of their students. Using the Illinois Learning Standards, teachers are also able to offer interventions and help struggling students catch up as well as helping high-performing students stay engaged.
We currently cover the following Hampshire-area school district: Community Unit School District 300.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hampshire District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards are clearly defined so that students know what’s expected of them. Also, students aren’t just meant to achieve a certain point and then stop and forget everything until they start over next year; students are meant to achieve certain benchmarks while retaining their knowledge for successive classes. The curriculum encourages active learning opportunities in the classroom with less emphasis on scripted instruction and multiple choice tests.
The writing curriculum has been revamped so that students are asked to write for analytic, informational, and creative purposes. One reason for the emphasis on writing is because it helps students as they learn grammar and vocabulary to be able to apply it. Another focus of the writing curriculum is the writing of well-supported essays and demonstration of analytic thinking. This allows them to be able to write effectively for a range of purposes as they may need when they complete high school.

Chalk Talk: School Profile
One complaint students have is that colleges will unfairly compare them with students from other schools. Colleges, on the other hand, will uniformly say this isn’t how it works. This is because—as the students argue—it wouldn’t be fair to compare two students from different schools because different schools offer different opportunities. How do colleges know what opportunities each school offers? The school profile tells them. This is a document that describes which advanced classes, if any, are offered, how students tend to do on standardized tests, the tone of the school, and generally gives insight into the academic atmosphere and rigor of a particular school. This helps colleges gain insight into the student’s college readiness.
