Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Libertyville District Curriculum
In English language arts, the curriculum standards emphasize reading nonfiction, writing reflective or persuasive essays, and working with complex texts in order to develop students’ ability to gather information. The development of vocabulary is a strand focused on throughout a student’s language arts coursework and they are taught different ways to break down words and find context clues to help determine the meaning of unfamiliar words.
In mathematics, beginning at the elementary school level, concepts including numbers, shapes operations and patterns, and are taught so that students have mastery of the foundations of mathematics before moving on to more advanced topics in middle school and high school. The lessons learned form the basis to solve more complex algebraic equations or work with geometric proofs at a more advanced level or in courses in statistics and pre-calculus.

Chalk Talk: Managing Free Time
When students first arrive at college, they encounter a new level of freedom with their personal time. Classes are scheduled differently than in high school, and it may seem that the schedule offers them more free time than when they were younger. Of course, many students also work and so the scheduling between work, classes, studying, and free time must be planned and balanced out. When planning free time, it is important to know what projects, papers or exams are coming up so that time may be given over to studying for them. It's also important to put in place activities that are enjoyable or stress-relieving because students should enjoy their college experience. Time management requires a good deal of planning and foresight; best time to begin is at the start of each new semester.
