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.

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.

- Artist Vists Terry Fox - PSSC headed an initiative that allowed an artist in residence to visit Terry Fox Elementary in Bathurst. The students received a visit from Hatem Baly, who was born in Egypt but currently lives in Bathurst. The school will collaborate with Mr. Baly, whose illustrations have been featured on TV and in children’s books—one of which was nominated for an award in 2013.
- 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. After the novels were read, students created individual projects to depict their interpretation of their book, which they presented in front of parents, peers, teachers, and community members during the Student Project Fair.
Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

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.
