Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lisle District Curriculum
In Language Arts, the curriculum emphasizes reading nonfiction, writing analytic essays, and working with complex texts. The purpose of this is to enable students to gather information and use evidence to back their claims while also increasing their vocabularies. The curriculum assigns importance to nonfiction reading and analytic writing in order to teach students how to be critical readers and persuasive writers, though some creative writing is incorporated.
In Mathematics, the curriculum focuses on a greater depth of instruction on fewer topics within a school year. At the elementary school level, the emphasis is on basic concepts like numbers and operations to ensure that students master the foundations of mathematics before moving on to more advanced topics in middle and high school. The intent is for students to apply their math skills to real world problems and challenges. The curriculum ensures that students are given the foundations they need to ensure mastery of complex ideas later in their education.

Chalk Talk: Choosing a College
It might be a surprise to some college applicants to learn that the most important things to consider when applying to a college aren’t the school’s colors or if a boyfriend/girlfriend is attending that college. The majors offered, and the strengths of those majors, as well as internships and opportunities with those majors, are much more important. Even if a student doesn’t know what s/he wants to major in, the type of education offered matters, such as class size, whether professors are available to answer students’ questions, graduation rates, and the like. Location can be important, especially when considering cost of living and ease of travel to and from the campus back to the student’s home. Location can also have a lot to do with availability of internships and opportunities; many colleges offer internships all over the country, but travel and cost of living for these might be prohibitive. All of these things, and more, should be considered before things like whether a friend is attending the college, or the schools’ colors.
