Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Burlington District Curriculum

The academic subjects that students take are overseen by the Ontario Curriculum which has been designed as a means to guide the whole instructional process. The curriculum explains what the major goals of subject learning are, what skills and knowledge should be taught at each grade level, and what students are expected to be able to do and show on performance assessments. The assessments occur during students elementary and intermediate years and culminate with a grade 9 math assessment and grade 10 literacy assessment that are requirements of graduation.

In Math, measurement and data analysis are critical features of the math curriculum. Learners solve problems that involve measurement and conversion, including measurements of larger units to smaller units. Students learn how to solve problems involving the surface area and volume of objects, and then gain practice through relevant uses for these techniques. Students acquire the ability to represent and interpret data as well. Students also learn how to interpret data and draw conclusions from primary and secondary data sources.

Burlington District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The curriculum in Burlington is developed at the provincial-level to ensure that all students are able to meet college and career readiness standards. The Ontario Curriculum provides an organized framework for the academic subjects. It describes the knowledge that is essential to the subject and also makes connections to the broader concepts and thinking skills that students will develop. The Ontario Curriculum provides a broad scope for local teachers to plan instruction while also making sure that students are taught to the highest possible standards of learning.

We currently cover the following Burlington-area school districts: Halton District School Board and Halton Catholic District School Board.

Chalk Talk: Assertiveness and Self-Esteem

A child that has strong self-esteem is more able to stick up for themselves and are able to avoid peer pressure. Parents can help with this in several ways, but first of all is to model the behavior that is desired. Children can also be aided by having someone listen to them and helping them to think for themselves. By listening, parents can see if the child is being bullied. Parents can also role-play everyday activities with the child, such as pretending to be a bully and allowing the child to stand up for themselves. These children also need to be taught “I” statements like "I don’t like it when...". Parents need to show how making eye contact and speaking in a clear, strong voice also helps. Finally help the child become aware of times when even friends need to be told no, such as when they are offered drugs, or alcohol or if someone tried to do something that they are uncomfortable with.
