Hamilton District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The public schools in Hamilton use the Ontario Curriculum as a guideline for organizing the delivery of subject area knowledge. The Ontario Curriculum describes what specific skills and knowledge students need to learn in each subject area. In addition to the knowledge base there are also broader concepts and higher level thinking skills that students will develop. Thinking skills like planning, choosing computational tools, reasoning, analysis, problem-solving, communicating, and critical thinking are learned through the subjects and the Curriculum provides a clear framework for instructional planning. The Curriculum does not proscribe instructional materials or lesson plans, it is a broader reaching tool that ensures students across the province are taught to the same high standards.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hamilton District Curriculum
Students take part in learning experiences that help them develop long-term skills, such as communication, collaboration, and respect for diversity. The framework for English is based on the areas of reading, writing, oral communication, and media studies. These topics work in conjunction with each other and analytic responses to text are expressed in writing or through classroom discussions. This build students analytic and critical thinking skills, which is one of the broad goals for the English curriculum.
Students also have the opportunity to become bilingual through traditional or immersion classes. Students acquire the ability to utilize the context of the conversation to derive meaning of unknown words and phrases. At the high school level, students use listening, viewing, and reading strategies to understand complex utterances and written passages. Students can be prepared to be fully bilingual and bi-literate by college through these courses and will have an additional skill that is often called for in the competitive, global economy.

Chalk Talk: High School Students Benefit from Late Start
Recent research supports the notion that high school students benefit from a later start to the school day. Typically, high schools begin classes between 7:00 am and 8:00 am, but a study by the University of Minnesota found that students do better in school when the start time is closer to 9:00 am. This late start is more in tune with teenagers’ natural sleep and wake cycles, which keep them up later at night and in bed later in the morning. By moving school back by an hour, students demonstrate higher achievement in class, with higher grades across the board. Additionally, students also perform better on standardized measures. School attendance is improved at late start schools as well, and tardiness and behavioral issues in class decrease. The study also notes that students exhibit less irritability and fewer signs of depression, all because of a later start to their school day.
