Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Winthrop Harbor District Curriculum

The Illinois Learning Standards provides objectives that state the skills and knowledge that students should learn each year. Language arts is taught so that students can use their literacy skills in all subjects. Math and Science have been organized so students are able to use manipulatives, investigate scientific phenomenon, and conduct experiential learning so that they have the frame of reference to analyze the related concepts. This is the basis by which students will later understand Algebra or Geometry.

Students are given clear expectations not only for how they should behave but for academic choices. They are given learning opportunities to succeed and build self-confidence. Students are expected to make healthy, positive life choices for their own benefit, which demonstrate respect for themselves and others. They learn how to collaborate with their peers and are taught to respect diversity and to be able to operate in group settings while remaining respectful to the opinions of others and being active listeners.

Winthrop Harbor District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The district uses the Illinois Learning Standards as the basis for its curriculum. Students have many choices for the academic path they want to take and will be able to use their core academic foundation to bridge the learning experience. Students also have many extracurricular activities as well including community service opportunities because the school believes that service to others teaches students valuable perspectives and will lead to students being engaged, active citizens and members of their own community. Active, engaged learners are also more likely to have success.

We currently cover the following Winthrop Harbor-area school districts: Beach Park School District #3 and Zion-Benton Township High School District 126.

Chalk Talk: College Applications

There are several types of college applications, but the biggest difference between them all is their deadlines. Early Decision is usually the earliest, due November 1. Early Action is usually due November 15. Regular Decision might be due December 1 or as late as February. Early Decision II is usually due in January or February. Rolling is an odd one; they don’t have a set due-date, exactly, more of a range. They open at a certain point, usually pretty early in the season, maybe even in late summer, and they end pretty late, maybe as late as March. All during that time, submissions are read as soon as they’re received, whereas with other application types, submissions aren’t necessarily read until the deadline passes.
