Clarence-Rockland District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The Ontario Curriculum is used by the local districts and it provides frameworks for subject-area learning that guide teaching and learning. The curriculum is broken down into an elementary and secondary section, however each subject relies on the same big picture strands of learning throughout the grades. The framework for each subject details the procedural abilities, content knowledge, and concept development that students are expected to learn in the various topics presented each year. Many advanced courses are offered by both districts to promote the development of these skills. High school credit is offered to middle school students, while high school students can participate in college-credit courses.

We currently cover the following Clarence-Rockland-area school districts: Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario and Upper Canada District School Board.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Clarence-Rockland District Curriculum

In Math, early learning focuses on developing numeracy, mathematic literacy, measurement and spatial awareness, and the ability to use manipulatives to represent shapes and data. In the later middle school and high school years, Math learning centers on Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Statistics. Students have options to take advanced courses in Math and to pursue pre-Engineering and Technology learning as well.

In English, the elementary curriculum focuses on the major strands of reading, writing, speaking and listening, and media studies. Students begin by learning the essential skills of phonemic awareness, writing, reading different text styles, vocabulary development, and strategies to decode meaning. As they move through middle school and into high school, the texts become more complex and students do more analytic response writing. Media viewing is also included in the curriculum and works like films, documentaries, and journalism are studied so that students understand their purpose and can comprehend the big picture within each work.

Chalk Talk: How Does the Writing Process Work?

The writing process consists of the following steps: brainstorming and pre-writing, writing, revising, and editing. When students learn how to develop written work, they are taught these steps because they provide the necessary stages to produce an effective piece of writing. The brainstorming part of the process is important so that time is given to generating connections, reasons, and supporting ideas for a topic. Writing is obviously central, and once there are words on the page, re-reading them is the next step. During the re-reads, which should occur more than once, students need to revise (reviewing sentence structure, adding to thoughts, removing unnecessary words) and edit (fixing mistakes and tightening up sentences to sound better). When all these steps occur, students are developing and communicating their ideas, enabled by the writing process.
