Laurentian Valley District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The curriculum used in the area schools has been developed to provide a comprehensive educational plan by which all students are able to master fundamental knowledge, essential concepts, and develop the means to become independent learners and critical thinkers. The curriculum offers both choice as well as rigorous requirements for traditional subject learning. In Math, the elementary curriculum prepares students with ways of understanding numbers, operations, functions, and quantitative data. This moves students toward their secondary school years where math learning centers on algebraic operations, geometric functions and spatial sense, and introductions to trigonometry and statistical analysis.

We currently cover the following Laurentian Valley-area school districts: Renfrew County Catholic District School Board, Renfrew County District School Board.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Laurentian Valley District Curriculum

The academic subjects provide critical learning skills which students will use in all range of academic and professional pursuits. Provincial assessments have been designed in conjunction with the curriculum to measure that students have been able to achieve the curricular standards established. This information ensures that students are prepared to specialize and advance their education successfully.

The English curriculum is planned so that students develop their abilities to be critical readers and writers, conduct research, speak and listen analytically, and understand media. Learning is centered around texts that allow students the chance to analytically respond in writing and discussion and provides ideas for their own creative expression. The writing which students do not only gives them the chance to express their own ideas, but also to develop analytic responses to texts and critical thought. Formal language conventions and grammar are a part of the curriculum, as is the development of personal voice.

Chalk Talk: Timed Tests in Math

Timed tests are often used in math to assess students on their basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division facts. They simply involve students solving a set amount of problems in a certain amount of time. Once the timer goes off, pencils must be down. The goal is for students to be able to mentally solve these problems as quickly as possible. Although students should not usually strictly be timed when taking tests, it is important that they be able to quickly solve their basic facts in order to have success in more advanced mathematical concepts. It is up to teachers how often they want to incorporate these tests (perhaps once a week) and how they would like to include them in students' overall grades. Even if students have moved beyond learning a specific operation, such as addition, it is a good idea to still incorporate timed tests in order to give students practice.
