Educating Our Parents: Understanding the St. Charles District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum begins with a comprehensive scope, teaching young students to recognize letters, develop an eye for sentence structure, and practice basic text analysis. Reading, writing and listening skills are given top priority in early grades, paving the way for higher grade tasks. SAT and ACT test skills are practiced along with an application of that vocabulary to text analysis. Rhetorical devices and argumentative writing allow students to develop college-ready thinking, while expanding their own informed opinions.
Mathematics curricula in the district starts students out in the earliest grades with pattern recognition, number characteristic description, basic math operations. Algebra, geometry, statistics and calculus are among the upper level courses that the district offers, helping students view math as relevant to a wide array of disciplines. Vocational and creative electives such as art, music, technology and consumer sciences bring relevant skills to our students, while promoting individual interests.

Chalk Talk: What’s Hip?: A Short Lesson in Dinosaur Classification
What makes a dinosaur a dinosaur? These ancient creatures are classified by their skeletal characteristics, as their bones are the majority of what scientists have access to study. In dinosaurs, there are two major classes based on the special shape of their hips. It’s true! One hip group is known as the Saurischians (sore-ISK-ee-ans), or “reptile hips.” In these dinosaurs, hip bones angle toward the front and back in a triangular shape, providing attachment sites for big leg muscles. This group includes the long-necked, plant-eating sauropods (SORE-oh-pods) and the meat-eating theropods (THER-oh-pods). The second hip group is known as the Ornithischians (or-nith-ISK-ee-ans), or “bird hips.” These dinosaurs angle their hip bones backward to support big tails and make room for big plant-eating bellies. This group includes the duck-billed hadrosaurs (HAD-row-sores), horned ceratopsians (ser-ah-TOP-see-ans) and armored ankylosaurs (an-KYE-low-sores). Interestingly, the group of dinosaurs most closely related to birds is the “reptile hip” group; some Saurischian hips reverted to a backward-pointing, birdlike direction in special groups, like the family that includes meat-eater Velociraptor.
