Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Peru District Curriculum

The Illinois Learning Standards recently updated their curriculum in Science, Math, and English Language Arts so that students are receiving the highest quality education in these core subjects. The new expectations introduce a higher degree of critical thinking skills and offer students more opportunities to do project-based learning. They also provide educators with more ways to integrate these subjects so that students recognize how the skills they develop in each subject lend to their understanding of other material.

The English Language Arts curriculum integrates reading, writing, verbal communication and listening, and research skills with the recognition that students will use these skills in all subjects. Students read complex texts, both fiction and informational texts, for comprehension and author intent. They write analytical essays, using evidence they have gathered from the text to support their claims. Mathematics classes focus on a greater depth of learning, so that students understand mathematical concepts, rather than just memorizing formulas.

Peru District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The elementary and secondary school districts which students from Peru attend both follow the Illinois Learning Standards (ILS). The Illinois Learning Standards are rigorous and intended to prepare all students for college and career. One goal of the statewide curriculum is to ensure that if students move between districts they will still be on the same path of learning. The curriculum is intended to provide an equal education for all students, regardless of location, different learning styles, or any other perceived difference. The curriculum focuses on critical thinking skills, analytical writing and effective communication skills, science literacy and problem solving skills, as well as mathematics.

We currently cover the following Peru-area school districts: Peru Elementary District 124 and LaSalle-Peru Township High School District 120.

Chalk Talk: Universities vs. Colleges

The primary difference between a college and a university is how they’re organized. Universities are grouped according to departments, such as humanities or sciences, whereas colleges aren’t organized as strictly. At a college, multiple departments might share the same building, whereas at a university, different departments are usually in their own buildings. Colleges tend to be smaller, though some universities are as small as colleges. Private higher education establishments tend to be colleges, though some are universities, and public ones are usually universities. Because colleges tend to be smaller than universities, class sizes are usually smaller. Because colleges tend to be private and many universities are public, there exists an impression that colleges are more selective than universities. This can be true and it also might not be the case.
