Amherstburg District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum describes the series of progressive learning objectives that guide students progress in mastering each subject. It describes the types of analytic strategies that students should apply to their reading, the problem-solving procedures associated with different fields of math, or the content and procedural skills that students should be gaining in science. Teachers and staff members dedicate themselves to fostering each student’s unique talents and aptitudes. Doing so also makes education more fun and relevant because students are able to pursue some of their individual interests within the larger scope of the district’s curriculum.

Within the schools goals of educating the whole student, offering diverse academic opportunities, and preparing students for their college and career goals, the curriculum serves as a guideline for essential skills, knowledge, and concepts students need to learn about.
The goal for students in their Language classes is to teach the literacy means for understanding, communicating, connecting, and thinking critically about texts. Students are taught to recognize points of view, and be able to discuss and respond in writing. Student instruction in writing is a significant part of this curriculum and proper usage of language is expected.
In Math, the curriculum ranges from basic numerical operations and measurements of quantities, through methods to analyze such data and use it to make models and to construct mathematic arguments. In each different course like Geometry, Algebra or Statistics, students gain different procedures for problem-solving.

Chalk Talk: Building Reading Comprehension
Parents can help their children become stronger readers by helping them comprehend what they read. To do this, parents need to model how they go about understanding the written word. First of all, when a descriptive phrase pops up out of the reading, parents can talk with the child about the picture that comes to their mind and then ask the child to share. Also, when reading with the child, stop from time to time to see if the child can pick out some of the main points in the reading, then ask them the important details that the author used to support the main ideas. Parents can also ask the child for predictions of what will happen on the next page and even at the end of the story. Each of these steps will help make the child a reader that will make connections in the reading.
