Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ottawa District Curriculum

Students in Ottawa are taught based on the standards of learning laid out in the Ontario Curriculum. This is the framework for the academic subjects; it describes the knowledge that is essential to each subject. Beyond that, the bigger picture concept and higher level thinking skills that students will gain through their education are also detailed so that a logical scope and sequence is established for learning in each subject. The curriculum ensures that teachers have freedom and opportunities to personalize learning.

In the 21st century, the expectations of students and professionals require critical thinking, problem solving and reasoning abilities. These thinking skills are developed through the knowledge base provided by the subjects in areas like algebra or life science or poetry, among many others. Students learn how to follow procedures in a precise manner, develop observational and analytic skills. Each topic relates to its overarching subject and helps build a student's ability to thinking in conceptual and abstract ways.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Ottawa students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.

Ottawa District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The districts that serve Ottawa’s students follow the frameworks established in the Ontario Curriculum. The curriculum reflects the expectations students will face in the global economy and help students be able to use resources and find information, and to place more emphasis on concepts and processes, and to focus on learning less material but in greater depth. The curriculum also establishes many program options so that students can develop mastery in languages, high skills specialist areas and a wide variety of scientific fields. There is also an option for students to enroll in the International Baccalaureate Programme which is an intensive, college-preparatory curriculum.

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

Chalk Talk: What Is the OSSLT?

The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) is a standardized assessment given to students in grade 10 covering all range of literacy, writing and language-based skills. The goal of the assessment is to ensure that students have proficient literacy skills with which to complete the advanced coursework of high school and be prepared for college and career. The assessment is a requirement for graduation and students can re-take the assessment if they do not succeed on it the first time. The test can help show students the areas where they need to have instruction increased so that all students are able to develop a full range of literacy skills.
