Homework hotline

Students from University of Illinois at Chicago, in conjunction with NBC5/Telemundo, provide free homework assistance to Chicago area students via Homework Hotline. Whether it's fractions, word problems or calculus, there is math help at the other end of the phone at the Homework Hotline. Subjects for which help is available also include history, science, reading, social studies, language arts, biology, chemistry, and civics. Volunteers who handle the phones do not give the answers -- they work with students to help them arrive at the answers on their own.
If you need help with your homework, please call NBC Homework hotline at 312-645-5555 Monday to Thursday through 5:00pm-8:00pm.


COUNTDOWN is a challenging interactive television math program which has engaged tens of thousands of students through broadcasts on cable television in Chicago. Capitalizing on the one on one relationship a student viewer has with television, COUNTDOWN makes math “work”. Each week the program introduces a different math concept through direct instruction and reinforces lessons with literature, manipulatives, activities and related computer instruction. Student viewers are encouraged to call a televised phone number to participate in the show by responding to challenges presented by the on-air educators.

Give a Shout Out To!

Teacher of the month

It has been a great privilege working at Jahn World Language School this year. It has been a pleasure working with our talented and motivated students, as well as our excellent, creative, and supportive staff and administration. While our music program is still developing, I am very proud of what our students have achieved so far. With the help of their teachers, they put on a fantastic Holiday Season Assembly and a terrific Black History assembly. I am amazed at the great progress that our band and choir students have made singing, and learning guitar, bass, keyboard, and drums.

Students of the Month

Every month teachers select a student who has exhibited good behavior, good work habits, and good citizenship to be the positive action students of the month. We celebrate with an ice cream party and students’ pictures are placed on our positive action bulletin board for all to see.
