Corner Brook District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Western School District uses the curriculum frameworks established by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development which guide student learning on its path from kindergarten to graduation. In addition to the English Program Curriculum Guides there is also a French Immersion Curriculum Guide, both of which detail the learning objectives that students are to meet. Subject areas are broken down according to their topics and the curriculum describes the general and specific learning outcomes for students. Both the general and specific learning outcomes are measured on the Common Assessments.
We currently cover the following Corner Brook-area school district: Western School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Corner Brook District Curriculum
The high school Science curriculum starts with students in grade 9 learning about Life Science, Earth and Space Science, and Physical Science. They study in-depth the Sustainability of Ecosystems, Weather Dynamics, Laws of Motion, and Chemical Reactions. During grades 10 through 12, students can take whole courses in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Environmental Science that allow them to explore their own hypotheses, design experiments and track their observations, and present their own scientific findings.
The high school Math curriculum is designed to introduce a number of key topics to students in the 9th grade and then expand on them during 10th through 12th grade. In grade 9, students learn about Square Roots and Surface Area, Powers and Exponent Laws, Rational Numbers, Polynomials, Linear Relations, Equations and Inequalities, Similarity and Transformations, Circle Geometry and Probability and Statistics. This establishes a depth of knowledge in Algebra, Geometry, and Data Analysis that guide the 10th-12th grade math options.

Chalk Talk: Readers and Writers Workshop
Many English language arts classrooms use the Readers and Writers Workshop model to teach students the skills involved with reading and writing. The reading workshop lets students gather in small groups to discuss shared reading and to discuss their analysis or opinions of the text. When a group has finished a book, they can make a presentation to their class about the text and their varying interpretations. In writer's workshop, students learn how to develop a piece of writing from brainstorming to presenting a final paper. They learn the techniques of outlining and generating ideas that support their purpose and the process of writing, editing, and revising. Once they feel that they have thoroughly worked through their paper, had the chance to receive feedback, they can prepare its final presentation.
