Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New Glasgow District Curriculum
The English curriculum includes the studying of literature throughout history. It helps students learn more about the world, different eras and cultures, and how to discern an author's intent. Students learn about different literary techniques and how to recognize them. They also learn how to discuss, summarize and analyze material in written and oral forms. Students also continue on to discover how to carry out research on a topic and then to translate it into a form that would interest an audience.
The mathematics curriculum helps students become proficient in using number and equations, algebraic relations, geometry and measurement, and data analysis. They learn how each of these topics is used in the real world and it is a goal that they be able to understand the best way of solving different problems. In more advanced classes, students learn about trigonometric functions, basic identities, and the laws of tines and cosines and more. All of which helps the students become better problem-solvers.

New Glasgow District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Chignecto-Central Regional School Board Instructional Framework guides instruction in the school district and provides clear expectations for students to meet each year. The curriculum is aligned to the assessments all students take in the province. The curriculum emphasizes core academics in English, Math, Science, Languages, and History and then develop frameworks that help students branch off into more advanced or focused studies. With the fundamentals established through mathematical problem-solving, scientific literacy, and the ability to communicate students have the foundation to master all subjects they pursue.
We currently cover the following New Glasgow-area school district: Chignecto-Central Regional School Board.
Keeping Informed: Recent New Glasgow Educational News
- NGA Asks “What’s In Your Backpack?” to Promote Social Justice - New Glasgow Academy used CCRSB’s “Stand Up. Speak Out” anti-bullying day to shift its focus on social justice and recognizing the things that make everyone unique, different, and the same. Students were asked to portray “what’s in [their] backpack”—things that demonstrate their abilities, hobbies, gender, race, class, etc.—and try to understand and accept what is in everyone else’s backpacks. Students could draw pictures, take photo, create short videos, etc. to show what was in their backpacks; their submissions were used at a regional event.
- NGA Uses “Restorative Approach” - New Glasgow Academy utilizes the Restorative Approach, which involves “using supportive relationships in order to create a safe and healthy environment where students succeed.” When curriculum is presented, students engage in circle discussions and participate in sharing discussions in class. Communicating in these circle discussions helps build a strong school community; establish, maintain, and repair relationships; and—when needed—resolve conflicts. This process allows the students to be exposed to a highly effective learning experience in a collaborative and respectful environment.
- One Student From North Glasgow, Seven Others Advance to Canada-Wide Science Fair - Over 230 CCRSD students recently participated in two regional science fairs. Eight of those students advanced to compete in the Canada-Wide Science Fair. One of these students attends North Nova Education Centre in New Glasgow. Her project is entitled “Breathe In/Breathe Out.”
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.

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: Calculating Error Rate and Accuracy in Reading
As teachers are assessing students’ reading on an individual basis, they should record the number and types of errors students make when they are reading. They can then calculate their error rate, which is the ratio of the number of words the student read inaccurately (errors made) to the number of words read. Perhaps the student made five errors on 50 words. To calculate a simplified ratio, the teacher would divide the total number of words read (50) by the number of errors made (5). The solution is ten, meaning that the child made one error for every 10 words read. In order to determine a child’s instructional reading level, the teacher needs to determine his/her accuracy. He/she would calculate the number of words read correctly by the total number of words the student read. From the previous example, this would be 45/50, which would equate to 90 percent accuracy.
