Guelph District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum is a comprehensive framework for teaching and learning which incorporates both core academics with innovative programs in non-traditional subjects. The curriculum has overseen the development of the language immersion programs, the outdoor education programs, and the high skills majors, all of which provide students with the drive to achieve. These programs integrate both core academics with other topics of focus so that students are able to gain knowledge in all subject areas.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Guelph District Curriculum
In Guelph, the public schools use the Ontario Curriculum as a framework that lays out the objectives and standards of learning in each subject area. The main core subjects all have discrete skills that a student needs to develop, and the Curriculum describes what all students should be learning. There are some assessments which are given across the province and serve to measure student proficiency in their subjects. Other assessments will be given in the classroom and enable students to work on projects individually or in groups.
To achieve the goal of developing and promoting critical thinking, the English curriculum describes what abilities a student should have in analyzing fiction and informational texts or the Math curriculum describes the skills in Algebra that a student needs to develop to reason out math problems. In science, the steps that students take to investigate scientific phenomenon are instilled. All these areas help students develop higher order and analytic thinking skills.

Chalk Talk: Helping Children Cope with Stress
Some children may exhibit few symptoms of stress yet may be suffering. Changes in personality, physical appearance, and relationships are always strong indicators that something is wrong. If you recognize negative behaviors, talk to the child immediately. Try to encourage him or her to discuss feelings; regular conversations are best. For more reluctant kids, providing access to movies, shows, or literature about dealing with difficult issues may be beneficial. For dangerous problems, it may be necessary to find help. Contact a pediatrician and/or mental health professional for more guidance. Whether exhibiting minor or major behavioral issues, all children deserve support to maintain their wellbeing.
