Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Beaumont District Curriculum
Black Gold Regional Schools utilize the Alberta Program of Study curriculum, which sets standards organized by grade bands in the following content areas: Aboriginal Studies, Career and Life Management, Career and Technology Foundations, Career and Technology Studies, English as a Second Language, English Language Arts, Math, Environmental Education, Ethics, Fine Arts, French as a Second Language, Health and Life Skills, Information and Communication Technology, and International Languages.
Each set of standards begins with “general outcomes”—for example: “comprehend and respond personally and critically to oral, print, and other media texts.” More specific standards that explain exactly what students are expected to do branch off of each general outcome. For the general outcome example given, the standards include using strategies and cues, responding to texts, understanding forms and elements, and creating original texts. From there, there are even more specific anchor standards; examples include using prior knowledge, appreciating the artistry of texts, and generating new ideas.

Beaumont District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Having originally been a French farming community, Beaumont is one of the fastest-growing towns in Canada over the past decade. The Black Gold Regional School District was formed in 1995, as it combined three former school districts in the area. The district is home to approximately 10,000 students in 27 schools. Four elementary schools, a middle school, and a high school are situated in Beaumont. The curriculum is standards-based and there is a detailed explanation of each of these anchor standards for each grade level. The curriculum also establishes the scope and sequence of learning that students will undertake.
We currently cover the following Beaumont-area school district: Black Gold Regional School District.

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: The Short ‘O’ Sound
The short ‘O’ sound is one of the vowel sounds students are introduced to at the primary grade levels. Words such as Tom, pop, and log contain this sound. These words all follow a CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) pattern, which usually contain short vowels. In contrast, words that follow a CVCV (consonant-vowel-consonant-vowel) pattern and end in ‘E,’ generally have a long ‘O’ sound (e.g.: robe and code). Words that begin with an ‘O’ sometimes—but not always—have a short ‘O’ sound; examples are olive and odd. Interestingly, words that contain “all,” such as ball and small, make a short ‘O’ sound.
