Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kankakee District Curriculum
The English Language Arts curriculum focuses on reading complex texts as well as building vocabulary. Students write analytical essays, using strong research skills to gather and evaluate information and use evidence to support their claims. Many students will also have opportunities to use journals for writing and to develop self-reflective skills. Students focus on reading nonfiction, rather than novels or poetry, and write analytically rather than creatively. The development of vocabulary, from the earliest grades through high school, is also emphasized in Language Arts classes.
In Mathematics, the curriculum focuses on a greater depth of instruction on fewer topics, so that students are able to master key topics before moving on. At the elementary level, students learn basic concepts like numbers and operations before moving onto more advanced topics in middle and high school once they have a firm foundation. The intent is for students to apply their math skills to real-world problems.

Chalk Talk: To Call or Not To Call
Parents want to be involved in the college application and search process, which is fine, but over-involvement can jeopardize an applicant’s chances of being accepted at a college by making the student appear incapable of doing things for him/herself. Some parents will call colleges to talk about applications, for example; communicating with admissions representatives might be necessary, but this communication should always be from the applicant him/herself. Likewise, emails should come from the applicant. Some parents will go so far as to help the student fill out his/her application, but it’s imperative that the student do this him/herself. The student should also take a key role in selecting which schools to apply to; guidelines for this, such as cost ranges, are fine, but when it comes to researching and applying to schools, the onus should be on the student. This way, the student is genuinely invested in the college and is more likely to thrive there.
