Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Urbana District Curriculum
The goals for Social Studies are to help students understand how society works by understanding geography, civics, cultural matters and as they advance, politics, economics and other concepts. In Social Studies, students also gain in research skills and are able to self-direct their learning by choosing projects to work on about different parts of the world or different cultures. These courses are important in laying a foundation that is drawn upon in many college courses, and in real life.
The curriculum in Language Arts builds students reading, writing, communication and research skills, in such a way as to make these applicable to all areas of learning. Students are taught comprehension and interpretation strategies for both fiction and non-fiction, and they focus on building vocabulary each year. Writing is an integral part of the curriculum and students are expected to learn different modes of writing such as persuasive or informational. Students also learn research skills that help them to discern and evaluate quality information. view all Urbana tutors

Chalk Talk: Art School’s Easy, Right?
One of the biggest misconceptions about college is that art colleges are less rigorous than other programs. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Art colleges are highly competitive, rigorous schools that push students to work tremendous amounts. Instead of the more familiar hour-long classes in other degrees, art classes may last many hours, allowing students to explore and produce more quantity. Students then, often, offer up their work for critique, which can be a harrowing experience. Most art colleges focus on internships, showings, and career guidance, so that students are kept aware of “life after college” and guided towards professional careers, often using art in more mainstream settings. Even getting into these colleges involves providing an accomplished portfolio which might take many months for a student to produce. Of course, not every school is as rigorous as others, but the reality is that many are. The payoff is that students get to work hard at something they love and learn how to make a career from it, and to many students, this is worth the hard work and dedication.
