Lanark Highlands District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The local schools use the Ontario Curriculum to provide the overview for teaching and learning in all subjects and programs offered by the districts. The curriculum is based in clear standards for learning and also student-centered in its adaptability in adding relevant new subjects to the course offerings. The Ontario Curriculum is comprehensive in that it provides all academic and elective offerings and is designed with multiple end-goals. Students are expected to develop a strong academic foundation of content knowledge and problem-solving strategies and they are expected to develop critical thinking skills. Students are also offered the opportunity to determine their career goals although they may also choose an academic path with the intention of determining future pursuits once in college.

We currently cover the following Lanark Highlands-area school districts: Upper Canada District School Board, Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lanark Highlands District Curriculum

In core academic subjects, students begin to develop the higher-order, critical thinking skills which are essential in successful college and career pursuits. The Math framework helps develop decision-making, logic, abstract and proportional reasoning, and an understanding of the importance of precision. In Science, students develop process thinking skills that value information in weighing theories.

The framework for English is designed to teach literature, writing, media analysis, and communication skills but also has been focused to provide these abilities across the curriculum. Students are expected to become scientifically literate, financially literate, and be able to communicate information in a variety of formats. The curriculum is demanding, but the framework is laid out so that from kindergarten to graduation, students build skills which enable their learning about more complex subjects.

Chalk Talk: Multiplication Madness

Multiplication Madness is a great activity that mimics college basketball's March Madness. It can be difficult and tedious for students to learn their basic multiplication facts, so having a little tournament in the classroom can motivate students to do so. This activity would involve each pair of students having access to a computer. Teachers can locate a website that allows students to solve basic multiplication problems, times them, and scores them. Teachers can determine that each student take, say, two minutes, to solve as many problems as he/she can. Teachers can use a round-robin schedule maker and input each student's name to pit every student against each other in the class (if there is an odd number of students, each student will likely have to sit out one round). Students record their scores and note which student won each match-up (whoever answered more problems correctly). Students who have the most wins at the end of the "tournament" can win prizes.
