Markham District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum is used by the public schools in Markham as the backbone for organizing instruction. The Curriculum describes the general areas of knowledge that a student needs to master in order to solidify their understanding and skills in major academic subjects. There are both specific skills and broader concepts that a student needs to understand in order to be proficient in the subject. The Ontario Curriculum describes what these are so that teachers may use the Curriculum to structure their lesson plans. Students participate in regular curricular activities that are supplemented by field-based learning and experiential learning that bring education to life.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Markham District Curriculum
In Science, students learn in-depth topics of biology, earth and environmental science, chemistry and physics. In physics, energy and waves are a critical component of the curriculum. Students learn how to quantify kinetic energy as well as gravitational potential energy. Radiant energy and Doppler shift are topics of discussion as well. Students also learn about electricity, including current, the movement of electrons, and voltage. Learning through hands-on lab experiences is emphasized so that students understand how scientists conduct research.
Students learn about the various purposes of music and gain the ability to explain why it is such an integral component of society. Performance skills are also introduced. Elementary school students learn how to follow the lead of their instructor, use appropriate singing voice and posture, and integrate movements into their performance. Students develop the ability to perform music as well, learning about stage presence, responding appropriately to the conductor, and singing or playing their instrument according to the direction of the music.

Chalk Talk: Topics to Discuss with Teens
Parents should not badger their teens about their social lives but should be aware of their relationships (friendships) and the clothes they wear, which can affect their learning. If teens want to be treated as adults, they need to be held accountable for their performance, preparedness, and work ethic in school. Another discussion topic that may need to be handled is the availability of transportation. If the teen already has a reliable friend in the neighborhood or a sibling who drives him/her to school, it may not make sense for that student to drive him/herself. If the school does not have buses and requires students to walk, parents may allow their teen to drive. If students have after-school jobs, they may need to drive themselves to these jobs in order to get to work on time.
