Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Melrose Park District Curriculum
In English language arts and history classes, the curriculum promotes the reading of complex texts, mostly nonfiction. Students write critical response essays and focus on gathering information, analyzing it, and applying it to support their theses in analytic essays. Students also work on vocabulary expansion. Novels, poetry, short fiction, and creative writing are stressed less but still taught. The purpose of the curriculum is to teach students the skills to be critical readers and writers.
In mathematics and science classes, students master basic concepts and use that foundation to prepare them to move on to more complex topics. The hope it to allow students the opportunity to apply their math and science skills to real-world situations and challenges. Overall, the curriculum is intended to ensure that students get a solid education by establishing clear expectations for what they should know at the end of each grade level and requiring all students to meet high standards.

Chalk Talk: College Visits
Many students put off college visits until the absolute last opportunity. Even worse, some don’t visit at all until they’ve been accepted, committed, and sometimes even when they are moving in! They intend to spend the next four years in a place they haven’t even visited. Each college has its own distinct feel and tone, and the only way to really discern this is to visit. Even colleges with similar profiles or programs can have drastically different feels. Visits are easy to do. On each college’s website, on the Admissions page, most colleges have a link to a calendar that reads something along the lines of “Visit Us.” Some colleges require that students sign up for a specific date and time, but many simply offer regular tours and information sessions, usually on weekdays. Some colleges even let students schedule interviews online. Not every college offers tours and information sessions. Both of these can be useful. Tours, of course, let you get a feel for the aesthetics of a school, whereas information sessions give info on the schools.
