Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rochelle District Curriculum
The districts provides a safe atmosphere for students, with clear expectations for what students should learn each year. The Illinois Learning Standards curriculum is competitive and offers challenges while maintaining support. Teachers strive to individualize educational experiences while also intervening when necessary to ensure success for all students. Students are encouraged to take control of their own learning and develop an appreciation for learning even after graduation.
The curriculum promotes critical thinking and reading, analytical writing skills and encourages science literacy and problem solving skills. Students read difficult texts, both hard copy and digital. They read for understanding but also to examine how the piece was assembled, to discuss the fallibility of the author, and to develop their own ideas on the topic. Students come up with theses based on their reading and gather evidence to support these ideas in well-reasoned essays and oral presentations.

Chalk Talk: Demonstrated Interest
Demonstrated Interest is a powerful and useful thing. What it means is that a student is engaged and interested in a particular college and has shown that in a tangible way. Think of it like this: if you’re picking a sports team from a group of people, who do you want to pick? Maybe one person appears athletic, but also appears bored and disinterested. Another appears less athletic but is very enthusiastic. All things being equal, which are you going to pick? The enthusiastic one, of course, because that person is more likely to push him/herself to succeed. That person is more likely to be a team player and to participate. College, and really, everything, follows the same principle. So you have to demonstrate that you are the enthusiastic one so you’ll get picked to play.
