Ajax District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum provides a framework for the instructional process used in the schools in Ajax. This curriculum is designed to cover the core academic subjects and electives. There are curricular frameworks developed for and used in programs that have a specific approach or method, such as International Baccalaureate or Outdoor Education, which specify program objectives and serves as a roadmap to the expected outcomes. The curriculum frameworks for each subject or program serve to guide the goals of teaching, the outcomes of learning, and provide a fair basis for creating assessments.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ajax District Curriculum
The curriculum for Language gives an overview of the types of literacy, communication, and thinking skills students will develop from elementary to high school. The early grades provide students with time to read for pleasure and also focus on basic phonemic and grammatical topics. These build the skills students need for literary analysis and to evaluate non-fiction and informational texts. Students write literary responses and structured papers which are expected to show awareness of language conventions, the ability to develop a topic, and an awareness of purpose and audience.
Math, Science, and Technology are areas in which there are a number more course offerings than in the past. Technology has increased the possibilities for instruction and classes taught, and students are able to take a full complement of courses to develop technological ability that would prepare them for a successful career. Productivity tools are introduced as well, so kids learn how to harness the power of technology to conduct research, complete assignments, and collaborate with other learners.

Chalk Talk: Building a Good Study Environment
Creating a space that a child is able to study and complete homework is important to helping them succeed at school. The area should be away from things that may distract the child. This should have good lighting, supplies that will be needed and a computer, along with a table or desk. To help the child’s subconscious realize the child’s potential place some well-placed, colorful, positive affirmation phrases placed around the area. A calendar is also useful so the child can keep an eye on potential due dates and the progress they have made. These few items will help the child realize that when they enter this area, serious work is going to be completed.
