Note: The Course Guide is approved annually by the Board of Education.
  3. 3. PURPOSE . . . The purpose of the Course Guide is to provide information important for choosing an appropriate learning pathway and selecting courses needed to achieve educational and career goals. DESCRIPTION . . . The Course Guide is in two parts. The first part, the Introduction, includes general information about graduation requirements, selecting a learning pathway, "building" a schedule of classes, as well as additional important information. The second part, beginning on page 1, lists the various courses offered by department. USING THE GUIDE . . . Please take a few minutes to "leaf through" the guide to get an idea of the contents and layout. After you have looked through the guide, follow the outline below to help you prepare for registration. 1. Turn to page i and read about "Preparing a Four-Year Instructional Program." In order to plan your program, it is necessary to understand the "learning pathways" and the placement process. 2. See pages ii and iii for a description of each pathway. As you read about what is expected, seriously consider (a) which pathway will best help you fulfill your goals, and (b) whether you can meet the requirements for entrance to the pathway and courses as well as the demands for keeping up with the work. Selecting a pathway should not be a status or social decision. 3. See page iv on "Choosing Electives." Select the "elective" course(s) which will help you toward your personal and career goals. Do not choose electives as "filler" courses. Read about the electives offered in each department. 4. See page iv on "Building a Class Schedule." With the help of your parents, advisor, and counselor choose your courses for next year. Your next step is registration. 5. Students will complete the registration forms during their advisory period. Your careful attention and advance planning will pay off in making sound decisions rather than last minute choices. 6. The school reserves the right to cancel or eliminate courses for any given school year. Inclusion of a course in this handbook does not assure it will be offered at a future date.

  5. 5. INTRODUCTION This section provides students and their families the necessary information for meeting the requirements for graduation, preparing a four-year program of studies and choosing the instructional learning pathway and electives to help you achieve your goals. Additional information is provided on credits, grade point average, rank in class, class standing, fees, homework, early graduation, alternatives to high school attendance and courses.

PREPARING A FOUR-YEAR INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM Each student is required to plan a four-year program of courses to achieve the desired educational and career goals (see page vi). Selecting and following the sequences of courses for that pathway will meet graduation and learning pathway requirements. Read and study carefully the explanation of each pathway and the requirements for the courses in that pathway. Pay attention to course prerequisites and when semester and year courses are offered. Planning a four-year program reduces the chance of missing courses and electives needed. We know that students’ plans do change, and we encourage them to seek the advice of their parents, advisor and counselor throughout their high school career so as to maintain an updated relevant plan. SELECTING A LEARNING PATHWAY The Board of Education provides a comprehensive instructional program organized into Learning Pathways. For incoming freshman, placement test scores determine the level of the student’s core academic courses. Teacher recommendations and prerequisites determine student placement for those currently enrolled. Instructional departments offer courses to meet students' needs in completing a chosen learning pathway. The pathway you choose should help you toward achieving your goals after graduation. All pathways meet or exceed the minimum graduation requirements. However, students planning to attend college should pay particular attention to the entrance requirements of the colleges they are considering and be certain they are taking the right courses. Students will enroll in one of the following pathways: LIFE; Integrated; College Preparatory; Accelerated; Technology Academy Pathways _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Introduction i Selecting a Pathway
  6. 6. L E A R N I N G The Learning for Independence, Family and Employment (LIFE), or standard, LIFE (STANDARD) pathway is designed for students entering the work force on completion of high PATHWAY school. It starts the student on the goal of LIFE long learning, whether it is to pursue Learning for Independence, Family and a two year degree at a junior or community college, a certification program at a Employment trade/technical school, preparation for the military, or planning for a job right after high school. The ultimate purpose of LIFE is making the most of the high school years to help prepare for further schooling, employment and family life. Students have a wide option of opportunities available by combining courses from across the curriculum, which may include "CP" or "AC" classes plus technical or applied academics. Course offerings allow students to select classes that are appropriate for their interests and abilities. Beginning in the freshman year, it is imperative that students plan a four-year sequence of courses that will lead to future success. Careers of today and tomorrow expect students to master the basic skills in order to compete in a very global, technical work environment. The LIFE or standard curriculum will prepare students for a productive life. The Integrated Pathway is for those students who would benefit from working with a team of teachers who collaborate on lessons and allow flexibility for the students to INTEGRATED complete their assignments. In the Integrated Pathway, some courses are blocked PATHWAY together so that the teachers and students can study their subjects with greater depth thus encouraging maximum success. The program is designed to allow those students who have motivation but need additional direction to achieve academically. The courses are aligned with the Illinois State Learning Standards and designed to allow students the opportunity to meet those standards by the completion of junior year. The courses that are thematically integrated at each grade level are: freshman year - English and social studies, sophomore year – English and biology; and junior year – English and United States History (American Studies). Each quarter, students in the Integrated Pathway produce a project that allows them to exhibit many of the skills learned in each class. Technology is a major component of the Integrated Pathway with at least one project at each of the three grade levels designed to utilize computer knowledge and the Internet. This pathway is for students contemplating post high school education and those who are still unsure. The College Preparatory Pathway is for the student who seeks a demanding academic COLLEGE PREPARATORY load with emphasis on the development of analytical, critical thinking and communication skills. This pathway provides the knowledge and skills required to PATHWAY successfully compete a four-year college or university program. All students who are contemplating post high school education are encouraged to participate in this level. The school tries to accommodate as many students in this pathway as possible. If a student has a low grade point average but expresses a strong desire to begin pursuing academics seriously, that desire will be given serious consideration. No single item is ever the sole criterion for selecting the college preparatory student. Answers to the following three questions are basic in considering a student for admission: a. Does the student have sufficient general ability? b. Does the student have adequate academic preparation? c. Does the student have sufficient motivation and maturity? Guidelines for courses in this pathway include: 1. A commitment to academic achievement. 4. A teacher recommendation may be needed with some 2. A grade point average of C or better. courses. 3.

  8. 8. P A T H W A Y S The Technology Academy is a four-year school-within-a-school opportunity. Students enter the Academy their freshman year following an application and TECHNOLOGY interview process. The program places emphasis on the utilization of technology in ACADEMY the classroom through the daily use of a student-purchased laptop computer. The Academy will offer a specified curriculum parallel to the College Preparatory Pathway, which will be presented by a team of teachers specially trained in incorporating technology into teaching. Students will participate in theme-based, student-centered projects that blend two or more subjects and utilize their laptops for research, production, and presentation of their projects. Graduates of the Academy will be well prepared for numerous opportunities, including: four-year colleges and universities, junior colleges, technical schools, special apprentice programs, or direct entry into the world of work. Students interested in the Technology Academy must minimally: 1. Apply for enrollment, complete the required screening process, and be accepted into the program. 2. Purchase/possess a laptop computer that meets the minimum requirements for the program. 3. Be concurrently enrolled in Algebra or have successfully completed Algebra previously. 4. Be committed to maintaining a record of excellent attendance and a minimum grade point average of “C”. 5. Be respectful of equipment, software, and other related materials. 6. Work well with peers, in groups, and with staff. The Accelerated Learning Pathway seeks to challenge and stimulate the most able ACCELERATED and ambitious students. It is designed to provide excellent academic preparation for college and to offer students the opportunity to do college level work and receive PATHWAY college credit while still in high school. This pathway is for self -motivated students who have demonstrated academic ability and a willingness to work. Students electing courses in this pathway will be expected to think, read, write and perform at higher cognitive and creative levels. This pathway requires students to commit additional time to studies including regular homework. Guidelines for admission to courses in this pathway include: 1. A commitment to academic achievement.

THE ADVISORY PROGRAM Advisory is a “small school within a large school” that provides the more intimate relationship of a small school community during the four years of high school. The advisory system strives to provide each student with an advisor/advocate in order to nurture, inform, protect, and promote each advisee’s best interest. At the heart of the system is the relationship between advisor and advisee—where students have a person who: knows them, cares about them, assists them, and will help them fulfill their educational and personal potential. The advisor, a certified teacher, is paired with 30 students, and they meet each school day for 20 minutes during an “advisory period.” Advisors serve several important functions for their advisees. These include being a mentor, acting as a coach, and as an advocate. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Building a Class Schedule vi Introduction

  17. 17. BUSINESS EDUCATION The Business Education Department has the opportunity to provide specialized training as the job market and student needs dictate. We see these needs as the following: All students should learn the essential skills of keyboarding and computer use taught in the Computer Tech and Computer Applications classes. We feel that this is a must for every ZB graduate. Students should be exposed to the different areas of Business Education. Over 40% of college students are business majors. (Note: Business Education courses meet the State of Illinois college requirements for admission.) Students should also take advantage of the Business Education training offered in: secretarial, accounting, marketing, and clerical fields -- all of which provide quality employment and career opportunities. Our goal is to equip our students with essential business and computer skills and knowledge, thereby enhancing their ability to compete successfully in this technological era.

  21. 21. ENGLISH AND READING As adults, today's students will encounter tremendous change during their lifetimes. Our goal in English is to help students learn skills that will allow them to meet and adapt to an American culture that science, technology, business and the media reshape daily. Therefore, we believe that students must think, read, and write at more than a functional level; they must do so at a creative and critical one that will give them an independence of mind. Michelle Standridge, Division Chair 847-731-9370 - standrim@zbths.org SEVERAL NOTES 1) Students must be aware that some colleges require English at a level of College Prep or higher in order to meet the rigor of their admissions requirements. Many colleges are now requiring that those students whom they admit have completed a four-year College Prep Program. As a general rule, students should begin their study of English by choosing the highest pathway for which they are suited so as to maintain their opportunities. 2) All English courses may require the purchase of a computer storage device. 3) All required core courses require a summer reading. criticism, communication skills, vocabulary study, ENGLISH 2A EN105 preparation for the College Board and A.C.T. exams, and a All Year - 1 Credit - 10 wider range of reading and writing with an expectancy of commitment and quality.
