Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Tecumseh District Curriculum
Tecumseh High School’s curriculum is rigorous and defines clear expectations for each grade level. The school also offers support for English language learners and students with special needs. Teachers are able to refine their lessons to students’ individual needs and to include advanced work to keep those students engaged, even when moving beyond the curriculum. Students who fall below the grade level, also, are offered interventions to help them succeed.
The goal of this curriculum is to prepare all students for college and/or career with competitive skills and a readiness to enter our increasingly global economy. Students are also encouraged to participate in their communities so that they will be engaged citizens as well as engaged learners.
Through the projects that students engage in, within and outside the classroom, they also learn valuable lessons about their strengths in areas such as project planning and time management.

Chalk Talk: What Is a Personal Statement?
One of the most exasperating essay prompts colleges give applicants is the personal statement. Many colleges ask for them but very few explain what they are, just assuming the applicant will know. Because they are such vague prompts, they can be difficult to write meaningfully. In a basic sense, a personal statement is exactly that: some sort of statement that gives insight into the student’s personality, interests, etc. Some students will respond to this by essentially providing a list of interests and qualities, but this isn’t very readable. It can also get complicated, since most of us have many interests and qualities. It’s better to focus on a smaller number of subjects, maybe even just one. Telling a story helps, since stories are innately more interesting to human beings, preferably a story that does the work of demonstrating multiple qualities and at least one solid interest.
