Bathurst District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Bathurst is bilingual, as the amount of the population who speaks primarily French and English, respectively, is nearly split down the middle (50/50). Therefore, some of the students from Bathurst attend the English-speaking Anglophone North School District, while some go to the French-Speaking Francophone Nord-Est School District. Anglophone North School District uses a common curriculum, which outlines the goals and objectives of instruction and learning, along with all the anglophone school districts in New Brunswick. The provincial curriculum is implemented in the following content areas: art education/visual arts, French Second Language/Immersion, health education, English language arts, guidance, mathematics, music education, physical education, science, and social studies.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bathurst District Curriculum
At the high school level, the curriculum is drawn up for each specific course. The English language arts curricula are separated into achievement standards for reading and for writing for each grade level. The reading standards involve text complexity, the use of both fiction and informational texts, ways in which students demonstrate strong achievement of reading skills, how students use reading strategies and behaviors to show appropriate achievement or strong achievement, and how students’ comprehension responses show appropriate achievement or strong achievement.
The writing standards involve students being able to write several forms of text, using writing strategies and behaviors and how they show appropriate or strong achievement, and how different areas of students’ writing (content, organization, word choice, voice, sentence structure, and conventions) reflect appropriate or strong achievement. Students who display strong achievement are at a more advanced level.

- Students Learn about Students of Other Cultures Through Books - Each grade level at Lewisville Middle School read a different novel that helped show the students a new perspective and see the challenges that children around the world face: Iqbal (sixth grade), which is about child labor in Pakistan; A Long Walk to Water (seventh grade), which tells the story of a child’s trek through war-torn Africa; and I Am Malala (eighth grade), which highlights Malala’s struggle to gain equal access to education under the Taliban rule.

Chalk Talk: Behaviorism and Reinforcement
There are many facets of psychologist B.F. Skinner’s theory of behaviorism. One component is how teachers (and parents) can get the behaviors they want from students by disciplining them a certain way. This involves operant conditioning—providing positive and negative reinforcement in response to student behaviors. Skinner argued that behaviors that are reinforced tend to be repeated, or strengthened. When students behave a desired way, they should receive positive reinforcement in the form of specific praise or a reward (less often). For example, a teacher may say, “I like the way Avery is sitting in her seat quietly.” This praise tells Avery exactly what she is doing correctly and, in theory, should result in her repeating this behavior of sitting in her seat quietly in the future. Not only is Avery’s behavior reinforced, but the other students in the class—some of whom may not be sitting in their seats quietly—see that, if they behave this way, they can be praised this way as well.
