Acton District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The standards of learning that are used in the public schools of Acton are based on the design of the Ontario Curriculum. The curriculum organizes each subject area into major topics that have their own standards or objectives of learning. Each subject area has its range of topics that help students develop the thinking skills which they will use in their future academic and career pursuits. The core subjects also help students develop conceptual, critical and higher order thinking skills, and these are described in the curriculum in addition to the basic skills and knowledge.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Acton District Curriculum
The goal of the district is that critical thinking skills, including problem solving, abstract thinking, communication, and cooperation, are facilitated in and out of the classroom. Through the English Language Arts curriculum this is accomplished by helping students gain the strategies to be analytic readers such as understanding complex language and point of view. Students are assessed on this by their writing and class discussions, both of which are elements of the English Language Arts curriculum. Student writing assignments offer them the chance to learn how to write creatively, persuasively, and informatively, and the process of brainstorming, providing feedback, and revising are taught as well.
Problem-solving skills are developed through the Math curriculum where students develop their operational sense, ability to recognize mathematical patterns and relationships, and to recognize dimensionality in objects. Working with quantitative data, being able to generate and analyze statistics, is also emphasized. Students are encouraged to see how math works in the real world, as well, and work on projects that combine math and other fields like studying the census and seeing how it is created and used to make policies.

Chalk Talk: Surviving the College Application Process
Choosing colleges, filling out the answers to the questions honestly but also in a way to make the application stand out can be stressful for teens. Parents can help this process by talking with the teen before the process begins and ask how to help them relax and the role they want the parent to take. They may need someone that only jumps in when asked or they may need organizational and deadline help. Parents also need to remain calm during the process. Finally, remember light moments can also help to ease the stress. Parents can point out something funny during the process, without laughing at the teen. If the stress becomes too much, talking to a professional may be the next step.
