Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bridgewater District Curriculum
The provincial curriculum is designed to introduce the major topics within each subject and give students time to explore the concepts to their fullest. The Science curriculum include the subjects of biology, chemistry, physics, ecology and environmental science. There is a focus on project-based learning so that students can go through all stages of scientific inquiry when learning about a topic. The Math curriculum focuses on the topics of numbers, patterns and relations, measurement, geometry, and Statistics and Probability.
The Programs & Student Services team oversees the implementation of curriculum programs in all schools. It is made up of the Director of Programs and Student Services, the Assistive Technology Specialist and Facilitator, the Consultant for Autism & Learning Centers, the Coordinator for Student Success Planning, the Coordinator for French Second Language (FSL) Programs, the Coordinator of Programs (Curriculum), the Literacy Mentor, the Coordinator of Technology Integration & Data Management, and many other individuals.

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: Prompting Students for Comprehension
Quality reading assessments not only evaluate students’ fluency and accuracy but also their comprehension of the text. Students are often asked to “retell” a story in their own words, but sometimes—especially for younger or struggling readers—teachers need to prompt students in order to gauge their comprehension. When prompting a student to retell a story, a teacher may ask him/her to explain the story—in his/her own words—to a friend or family member or to someone who has not read it. A teacher may ask a student about key ideas in a text, asking what the author is telling the readers, to describe the main points or most important parts, etc. Sequence may be focused on to ask the student what he/she learned first, next, and after that. If vocabulary is important, a student may be asked about any important or special words the author uses. In a text that uses textual features, such as charts, graphs, pictures, maps, a teacher may prompt students to ask why these are important to the story, what information they tell the reader, and what they learned.
