Queens District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The South Shore Regional School Board uses the provincial curriculum. The curriculum starts out by introducing students to key topics in each subject and then deepening and expanding the focus based on that foundation. In English, students learn the fundamentals of reading and writing which allows them to begin understanding themes and the craft of writing. In Math, students learn how to conduct precise measurements, understand and evaluate data, and solve problems using a variety of methods. In Science, students are given the chance to be young scientists and are taught the methods of investigation alongside content in earth and life science or energy and matter.

We currently cover the following Queens-area school district: South Shore Regional School Board.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Queens District Curriculum

The curriculum in Math begins with foundational knowledge in number operations, measurement and quantities, and ways of understanding the relationship between pieces of data such as with probabilities. In high school, the focus is on concepts of algebra, geometry, and data analysis which prepares students for their secondary and post-secondary learning in all math-related subjects. The curriculum designed secondary math courses to fall into either theoretical or practical modes from which students may choose.

The English Language Arts curriculum focuses on critical reading of both fiction and non-fiction, language development, speaking and listening, and writing in a variety of formats. Many schools use the Readers and Writers Workshop approach which is an interactive way of developing literacy skills. Students are expected to write reflective and analytic responses, persuasive essays, and technical writing. These opportunities for thinking and expressing oneself critically brings about the analytic and evaluative thinking skills which students use in all subjects.

Chalk Talk: Reading Miscues: Hesitation and Non-Response

When assessing students’ reading—particularly when using the Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA)—teachers are often tasked with keeping a running record of not only the errors students make while reading aloud but the types of errors. These reading errors are called miscues. The process of identifying the errors and keeping a running record is called miscue analysis. Sometimes, students will hesitate or pause in the middle of reading or not even attempt to try to pronounce an unknown word. If there is an extended pause in the middle of a sentence, this may sometimes be considered a miscue. Hesitations may indicate weak visual tracking, or students may simply take long pauses before difficult words. Students who do not try to sound out words may have weak decoding and word attack skills and rely mostly on their ability to recognize sight words. They also are not using context clues to try to figure out the word. Students who pause or do not respond may lack confidence in their reading abilities.
