Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cornwall District Curriculum
The Language curriculum helps students develop the literacy skills that will help them understand the world and themselves. In reading, they study multiple genre to see how authors use their craft to develop meaning for the readers. In their writings, students learn how to remain objective in their tone when the situation calls for non-opinion pieces. Students also work on the craft and structure of their writings. Learners devise methods to write impactful introductory paragraphs, with body paragraphs that support their ideas and a conclusion that sums up their main points.
The technology curriculum has increased in breadth and depth as the subject has become more of a mainstay in society. Students identify the ways in which technology can improve productivity in the workplace. To prepare for such productivity, students learn how utilize computers and software programs to create multimedia presentations, manipulate photographs and graphics, use spreadsheets and create databases.

With the development of a Curriculum that is used throughout the province, so too is there the creation of an assessment to measure that students are achieving the standards of learning. Students will take these assessments in literacy and math in grades 3, 6, 9 and 10.

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: Preparing for College as a Junior
Most juniors in high school begin to feel overwhelmed with the thoughts of what they need to do to prepare for college. This is the year to begin to narrow down the choices of colleges. Students in this year should begin to attend college fairs, financial aid workshops, and informational sessions. Throughout this year, students should save their best work for their academic portfolio and maintain their co-curricular activities. Students should also register for the PSAT, to be taken in October. This helps to qualify students for the National Merit Scholarship Competition and other programs. Searches for grants, scholarships and work-study should also begin. Students should also begin to make a list of colleges. Contact the schools to receive admission and financial aid information. Finally, in the summer, look for special programs to participate in and volunteer jobs or work.
