Courtenay District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum used in Courtenay was designed by the Ministry of Education to provide a framework of standards of learning for each subject across the grade levels. This framework pinpoints the information that students need to learn in each subject to gain proficiency. These targeted standards of learning are referred to as Prescribed Learning Outcomes (PLOs) and the province-wide assessments that students take are aligned to the standards for learning that are laid out in the curriculum. In addition to this curriculum, specific curriculum for programs like Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB) and other locally developed courses are in use in the schools.
We currently cover the following Courtenay-area school districts: School District 71, Catholic Independence Schools Vancouver Archdiocese.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Courtenay District Curriculum
The social studies curriculum explores topics ranging from politics to socio-cultural studies and students have many opportunities to strengthen their research skills on projects that explore places, people and events. The government strand focuses students’ attention on developing a better understanding of what it means to be a citizen. Students learn about the importance of active participation in the community and the value of compromise as well. Cultural awareness is also a major part of the curriculum and students learn about traditions and cultural perspectives of others.
The international languages curriculum helps students develop complete fluency in a second language. Learning expectations include that students use their newfound language skills to communicate with diverse groups. This might include delivering a speech to classmates or instructing other language learners online. The interpretive level of language learning focuses on deriving meaning from messages.

Chalk Talk: Expectations for Information Literacy
All courses require that students become strong readers in the subject and have the ability to seek out and report on information. In terms of information literacy and problem solving, students are expected to clearly articulate a topic or problem, independently engage in pre-research and research strategies to investigate the topic, generate their own questions, formulate essential questions and a thesis, identify and use high quality sources and relevant information, create an original product and choose an appropriate presentation format. Listening involves listening responsibly (understanding multiple perspectives), following all parts of directions and seeking clarification when need be, extracting supporting details and basic information from listening sources, and analyzing information that is heard (for bias, tone, fact vs. opinion, inflection.). By focusing on these skills, a student’s ability to read for meaning and write with clarity are supported as well.
