Oak Lawn District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum in these districts follows the Illinois Common Core standards which emphasize real-world applications of material in a fostering, non-exclusionary environment.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oak Lawn District Curriculum
In Mathematics, the Common Core focuses on a greater depth of instruction on fewer topics within a school year. Beginning 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 applications.
In Language Arts, the Common Core standards emphasize the reading of nonfiction over novels. It also emphasizes writing analytic essays and working with more 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 Common Core assigns importance to nonfiction reading and analytic writing in order to teach students how to be critical readers and persuasive writers, though some fiction and creative writing is incorporated.

Chalk Talk: How to Choose a College
There are many things to consider when choosing a college which can help determine whether a student will succeed at that institution. Some people look at name recognition, rankings, sports teams, and the like, but the most important thing to consider is whether that college is a good fit for the student, regardless of name or rank. Rankings come and go and are often based on things that might not really affect a student. What matters is whether a student will truly thrive at a college. To determine this, students need to consider their own learning and lifestyle needs and then try to match this with an appropriate college. Things like class size, internship opportunities for undergraduates, and graduation rates are important to consider because they can tell a student a lot more about a college than a ranking in a magazine.
