Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kentville District Curriculum
Each of the content areas contains a collection of curriculum-related documents, such as detailed information on each specific course, including program design and components (assessment), outcomes, and contexts for learning and teaching. The English language arts part of the curriculum consists of a wide range of resources, including information on students at each age range (including adolescents) becoming active readers, creating balanced assessments, qualities of effective essays, and reading workshops.
Many of these documents are extremely detailed—hundreds of pages in length. The curriculum documents are available for the content areas of the arts, business, cross-curricular areas, English language arts, entrepreneurship, French Immersion, Core French, Integrated French, Gaelic, health education, languages, math, Personal Development and Career Education, physical education, science, social studies, and technology education.

Keeping Informed: Recent Kentville Educational News
- Kings County Students Create Colorful Birds, Learn About Art - Artist Terry Drahos, who leads the Uncommon Art Project, visited Kings County Academy to give an art lesson to the students in grades 2-5. The students learned all about the birds in Nova Scotia and then traced outlines of birds onto heavy-duty mylar paper, colored their birds, and cut them out for hanging. The mylar stencil of the flying bird was also used to create flocks of tempera-paint birds on concrete areas around the school, which slowly disappeared as the fall progressed—just as the real-life birds did as they slowly migrated south.
- Aldershot Elementary Gets Donation for Breakfast Program - Aldershot Elementary received a generous donation of $2,200 to give the school’s breakfast program a boost. The donation was presented by two pastors from the New Hope Wesleyan Church and represented half of the proceeds from a charity golf tournament.
- Kings County Academy Drop Pumpkins to Learn - Kings County Academy students combined fun and learning around Halloween time, as they built vessels to protect pumpkins, which were dropped from a boom truck supplied by Atlantic Arborists onto the basketball court. Each class built a vessel made from materials such as boxes, garbage cans, deflated balls, popcorn, etc. Bryan Turner’s 4/5 class had the winning vessel—as its pumpkin withstood the impact and landed closest to the target—and classes were also recognized for having the least environmental impact and for the appearance of their vessel.
Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy 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 very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
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: Creating Anticipation Guides
Anticipation guides are effective resources to use to monitor students’ knowledge before, during, and after reading. They are particularly beneficial to use with students at the middle and high school levels. Teachers of all content areas should be responsible for developing students’ reading skills, and anticipation guides are simple to create in conjunction with textbooks in social studies, science, and other subjects. It is widely known that is essential that students be actively engaged during all phases of reading, and anticipation guides provide a way for this to occur. The first section of the anticipation guide is the “before reading,” or pre-reading , section. This section should primarily be used to gauge students’ prior knowledge of the material. Teachers may include true-or-false or multiple-choice questions to see what students know before they read. Teachers may also decide to include KWL charts in the prewriting sections, with students being asked to fill out what they already know (K) about the content, what they want to learn (W), and ultimately what they learn.
