Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Chicago District Curriculum
The Common Core Standards offer a clear set of expectations for what students should know in English Language Arts and Mathematics so that all students are able to meet rigorous standards that call for critical thought, original scholarship, and increasing independence in a student's ability to learn. The curriculum emphasizes skills that students need to succeed in college and the professional world.
In Mathematics, the curriculum focuses on core topics, such as numbers and operations at the elementary level. These topics are delved deeply and thoroughly to ensure that students master them before moving onto more advanced topics in middle and high school. In English Language Arts, students read nonfiction and other complex texts and write about them analytically. Students are expected to develop topics, find and research those topics, build arguments, and support them through analytic reading and information gathering.

Chalk Talk: What ACT Score Do I Really Need?
The national average ACT score is in the low 20s, but national averages don’t necessarily mean that much to an individual student. Most moderately selective colleges, those that accept more than half their applicants, that require standardized test scores will require students to make at least in the very high teens or low 20s, or they’ll ask the student to retake the test, or simply reject the student. A score of a 21 or 22 isn’t going to greatly impress a moderately selective college, but it should be high enough so that the score won’t be a detriment to the student. The mid-20s is a much more attractive range to colleges, but still isn’t going to impress. A score in the high 20s might be high enough so that a student can be accepted into a fairly selective college, one that accepts less than half of applicants, but if a student is applying to very selective colleges, the score really needs to be in the 30s.
