Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lively District Curriculum

Each subject aids in the development of critical thinking skills which are necessary for college and career. The core courses all have ways of thinking which are promoted through their study. In Math, student learning brings about logical and proportional reasoning and methods of analysis. In Science, students develop their process of inquiry and learn to seek data to prove theories. English and other humanities provide the background for interpretative and reflective thinking as well as verbal reasoning.

The curriculum also provides for course options designed to move students toward their fields of study in college or their interests in career pursuits. At the high school level, one such program is the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program which has been designed to give students a global understanding of the world and honed analytic skills developed through rigorous academics and project-based learning experiences.

Lively District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The local districts use the Ontario Curriculum as the roadmap to student achievement. The curriculum lays out the plan by which students will become proficient in the academic subjects by providing clear expectations for learning at each stage of a student’s education. The curriculum also explains the broader rationales in subject area teaching such as the concepts and learning skills students are expected to master within their courses. During all levels of school, students will be able to join enrichment programs that integrate subjects, offer project and inquiry-based learning opportunities, and give students a chance to connect knowledge.

We currently cover the following Lively-area school districts: Rainbow District School Board, Sudbury Catholic School District Board.

Chalk Talk: Pop Quizzes

Pop quizzes are known to terrify students, but are not given too frequently these days. Pop quizzes are "surprise" quizzes given on content recently learned in class. It is not generally recommended that teachers give their students assessments that students did not prepare for. A teacher may want to give out pop quizzes when it obvious that most students are not completing nightly readings. Sometimes, students will wait until a test is on the horizon and read all of the material at once, but this is not beneficial for them. Therefore, throwing in an occasional pop quiz on a night's reading may motivate students to do their readings every night. However, this tactic should not be used alone; students need to be intrinsically motivated to complete the readings because of the learning that will occur. If a teacher plans to give a pop quiz, he/she may want to announce on Monday that a surprise quiz will be given "sometime this week" to give students a bit of a warning.
