Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kapuskasing District Curriculum
Literacy is a cornerstone of all subject area learning and the curriculum places emphasis on the literacy skills that students will use in each subject. In their English classes, students will read fiction, poetry and drama and learn more about the world, the way people and cultures are, and themselves.They will read non-fiction in Social Studies and Science, and are expected to be able to analyze the information found in non-fiction texts.
There are an increasing number of specialized programs that allow students to focus on developing their abilities in a High Skills area, preparing for college, or preparing for a technical career. These allow students more and more chances to show innovative and creative thinking, and a goal of the core subjects is to raise that ability for each child. Student achievement in core subjects is based upon demonstrating knowledge, creative and critical thinking, meaningful communication, and application of knowledge. This can be accomplished and honed in areas that students are interested in pursuing academically or as a career.

Kapuskasing District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum provides the teaching and learning guidelines for each subject that a student takes. There are many subjects available to students to help them determine where their talents and interests lie, and for each a detailed plan and expectations for learning goals are laid out. Core academic subjects serve to prepare students for all learning challenges. They provide the basic communication, problem-solving and reasoning, and process-oriented approaches needed to master a diverse array of subjects. The lay out of the curriculum keeps this in the mind, and emphasizes these end-goals throughout the years of education in each subject. The processes, means for communication, analytic and interpretative skills are all brought out through the experiments, challenges, and projects students work on.

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: School and Safekeeping
Particularly when students become older, they should make sure they keep their important items secure when they are at school. Students should avoid carrying valuables such as expensive jewelry and a lot of money. However, they may have items such as car keys, phones, MP3 players, and some cash, which they should keep protected. Most high school lockers have locks, but it is probably a good idea for students to keep these items with them in their bag or backpack. When students attend gym class, they will need to stow away their belongings. Students can either keep their things in their main locker or bring a combination lock to use on a locker room gym locker. They should avoid keeping items of value in a locker without a lock. It is important to teach teens that they must be responsible for the items they bring to school.
