Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Humboldt District Curriculum
The schools emphasize experimental learning which is student-centered, activity-based, and hands-on; it involves experiencing, sharing or publishing, analyzing and processing, inferring or generalizing, and applying to new situations. Independent study allows students to become autonomous learners and be responsible for the planning and pacing of their own learning. Interactive instruction requires heavy discussion and sharing of ideas and thoughts among groups of students.
The curriculum provides many opportunities for indirect instruction, which is student-centered, and instead of the teacher being the lecturer, he/she acts as a facilitator and supporter. Students are engaging in inquiry, problem solving, reflective discussion, drawing inferences, and investigation and discovery. Indirect instruction may require teachers to pre-teach some skills and processes, but it can typically be effectively used in any lesson.

Humboldt District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Horizon School Division No. 205 is located within the rural area of East Central Saskatchewan and is headquartered in Humboldt, is divided into 14 subdivisions. Humboldt Collegiate Institute and the Humboldt Public School are the two schools located in Humboldt. The district uses the Saskatchewan Curriculum which was designed to instill a broad base of knowledge and the critical thinking skills necessary to grasp advanced concepts. Horizon School Division No. 205 incorporates several instructional approaches in its classrooms. Direction instruction, which includes explicit teaching, practice and drill, and demonstrations, is an effective strategy for providing information and developing step-by-step skills.
We currently cover the following Humboldt-area school district: Horizon School Division No. 205.
Keeping Informed: Recent Humboldt Educational News
- Students Hone Their Journalism Skills During Conference - Students from Horizon School Division were able to participate on an e-journalism team during the National Congress on Rural Education. The students were able to interview notable speakers, create videos, write articles, and post on their work on social media.
- Junior Achievement, Horizon Have Unique Partnership - The recent partnership between Junior Achievement Saskatchewan and the Humboldt and District Chamber of Commerce will allow students in the Horizon School Division to be exposed to lessons from experts in areas such as workplace readiness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship. The goal is to encourage students to think about business and entrepreneurship as a potential career pathway.
- Humboldt Students “Vote” - Thanks to Student Vote, which provides a student-centered election curriculum complete with tools for the students’ very own voting booths, students from across Humboldt were able to vote in a mock election. A third and fourth grade teacher at the Viscount School said her students have been able to think at a high level— understanding the importance of being informed before voting—and were surprised to hear how long it took women, Aboriginals, and individuals of Asian descent to be permitted to vote in Canada.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
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: Reading Repetition Miscues
When assessing students’ reading, teachers are often tasked with keeping a running record of not only the errors students make while reading aloud but the types of errors. These reading errors are called miscues. The process of identifying the errors and keeping a running record is called miscue analysis. One type of miscue is a repetition, or regression, miscue, which occurs when a reader repeats a word or portion of the text. If repetition is happening frequently, this may indicate that the text is too difficult for the child. If a student is repeating words very often, especially in a text that is too challenging, the flow in the reading will be disrupted, and it will be difficult for him/her to comprehend the text. This shows why it is so important to understand students’ reading abilities and provide them with texts that are at an appropriate level for them.
