Oshawa District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum used in Durham District School Board and Catholic School Board is based on the Ontario Curriculum which is comprehensive and provides a clear scope and sequence for learning. Each subject is organized according to its major topics and then students are introduced each year to increasingly complex skills and knowledge in each area. Students also are taught to find areas where their learning connects so they can understand who learning in one subject benefits other subject-area learning as well. Critical thinking skills are incorporated into the expectations of each subject, and students learn how to do scientific and logical reasoning as well as analyze texts from all subjects.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oshawa District Curriculum
The framework for learning that is used in Oshawa's schools is the Ontario Curriculum. This curriculum has been developed at the provincial level to provide all students with standards of learning that will prepare them for the 21st century. The curriculum provides the general skills and basic knowledge inherent to each academic subject and then describes the concepts and thinking skills that students will gain through their course work. It also introduces students to Outdoor Education and Environmental Studies, and has a number of language learning programs.
Local teachers will develop their own lesson plans using the resources of the school and their own teaching library. The Ontario Curriculum is a standards-based framework to help organize the delivery of knowledge so that learning is cohesive. Standardized assessments are aligned to the teaching standards in the Ontario Curriculum. Students are expected to demonstrate mastery in literacy and communication in order to graduate. There are also community service requirements for all students to meet.

Chalk Talk: Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development
The Zone of Proximal Development theory suggests that students who work with students and teachers who have more learning than they do will succeed in engaging in more learning themselves. There are many ways to accomplish this from paired work to appropriate instructional methods like scaffolding. Examples of scaffolding include providing visual aids such as graphic organizers and charts that can help organize students’ thinking, asking structured questions that allow teachers to gauge students’ prior knowledge and check for understanding during a lesson, or giving lessons on vocabulary before reading a text. An example that illustrates ZPD is that students should read books at their instructional level (within their ZPD)—not too difficult or easy—meaning that they can read the book independently with about 90 to 95 percent accuracy.
