Bowmanville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum used in the local schools was developed by the Ministry of Education and offers research-based standards of learning within all subjects. The standards of learning represent the essential knowledge within the subject that students need to comprehend in order to become proficient in that subject. Beyond the basic knowledge developed through the academic areas, there are also broader concepts and thinking skills that students will develop. Students will understand how major systems work, will understand scientific and mathematic processes and develop critical thinking and reasoning skills as they gain knowledge in their subjects.
We currently cover the following Bowmanville-area school districts: Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board and Peterborough Victoria Northumberland Clarington Catholic District School Board.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bowmanville District Curriculum
The elementary school English language arts curriculum focuses on developing foundational skills so students become effective readers and writers. Students work on recognizing parts of speech, including nouns, verbs, adjectives, and pronouns. Sentence structure is also examined, with students gaining an understanding of capitalization and punctuation procedures. Learners work on phonological awareness as well. Syllabic recognition and word recognition are perfected, as is phonemic awareness. Students are expected to learn to read both out loud and silently with fluency.
At the high school level, students will take courses in the core subjects, as well as technology, music, art, library, world languages, physical education, health, and participate in programs at the Outdoor Learning Centre. In the high school, students prepare for post-secondary education and work. Their course options are consistent with that of the middle school, with additions of business, a career exploration internship, work experience program, career and technical education, and Advanced Placement (AP) courses.

Chalk Talk: The Emergence of Culinary Arts Programs
As home economics courses have waned over the past few decades, many schools attempt to teach cooking to students through similar classes. Life skills, family and consumer science, and other types of curricula may involve simple kitchen-based tasks. As schools focus heavily on core academic instruction, it is important to remember the essential skills needed to survive. Cooking is one of them, and teaching it to children can benefit them in more ways than just eating. Culinary arts programs have also become a popular course of study and follows from the food revolution in the last couple decades. Not only do students learn techniques and about food, but they also learn about the chemistry of food and have to work with measurements in a very precise way. These programs also prepare students for higher education in this field, which can lead to a great many work opportunities.
