Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Newmarket District Curriculum
The subject areas are organized so that students build knowledge with each new school year. The curriculum relies on students use of prior knowledge to build a deeper level of understanding. It is by doing this that higher-order thinking skills such as reflection, problem-solving, and reasoning are developed. Critical thinking goals are developed through all subjects by giving students a different frame of reference by which they can develop verbal, mathematic and scientific reasoning abilities.
For instance, with the math curriculum one priority to help students understand mathematical concepts as integrated and relatable to other disciplines and real-life situations. Additionally, students should be able to analyze real-world problems and construct mathematical models to help solve them. This over-arching goal is achieved by ensuring that students know how to solve problems in algebra, geometry, and data analysis and have the necessary prior knowledge to be able to construct problem-solving models and reason effectively with them.

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: How are Assessments Used by Teachers?
Throughout a school year, a teacher will give many different formal and informal assessments, or tests, which are designed for different purposes. Tests that are given at the beginning of the school year provide information about what students know and do not know and a teacher can use that information to plan their teaching goals. Project-based assessments are used all year and support learning through inquiry and the development of project planning and independent work skills. Summative assessments, or end-of-year exams, provide information as to how students did at achieving the learning expectations established in the curriculum.
