Kirkland Lake District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The learning and achievement expectations for core academic subjects are designated by the Ontario Curriculum. Programs that students may enter like an International Language Program or a Pathway Program also have curriculum designed that specify the intended learning outcomes for students. In Language, students are instructed in the major topics of reading, writing, oral communication, and media literacy. They are expected to develop means for comprehension, communicate understanding and new ideas, connect thoughts and texts, recognize different points of view and cultural attitudes, and to understand how the language serves to accomplish all this. Students write extensively and are expected to employ the formalities of language in most writing tasks.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kirkland Lake District Curriculum
In Science, the instructional focus requires a lot of hands-on learning experiences which offer students a chance to interact with the concepts they are learning about. The foundation covers biology, earth and life science, and concepts in chemistry and physics. In high school, students will also be able to take many advanced technology courses and programs in ecology and the environmental sciences.
In Math, students are expected to develop a basic sense of numbers, quantities, measurement tools and methods, and how to read mathematical information. As students move along in their school years, they will be asked to do more complex tasks of analyzing data, making conjectures and using models for estimating, and understanding geometric functions and algebraic operations. The goal is that students have all the tools to understand how to solve problems in practical and abstract terms.

Chalk Talk: Using Syntax to Identify Unfamiliar Words
It is important for students to be able to determine a meaning for a word they are unsure about because it is inevitable that they will come across unfamiliar words in their reading. Students need to be taught strategies as to how to come up with meanings for unknown words. One such strategy involves students using their knowledge of syntax. One activity teachers can try is to give students a sentence and delete a word from that sentence, displaying only the first letter in the missing word. Students can then talk about what words would make sense in that sentence. Another idea is for students to arrange words cut out from sentence strips into the correct order. Lastly, the cloze procedure involves students predicting random words that are purposefully left out of a paragraph or passage.
