Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oakville District Curriculum
In elementary science, the scientific method is tied in to a variety of scientific activities. Simple pattern recognition and the development of scientific questions are approached with hands-on methods. Science communication skills are also promoted. In upper grades, and the basic frameworks of matter and energy, earth science, ecological interactions, and organism morphology are expanded upon with courses such as chemistry, biology, anatomy, and physics.
English Language Arts curricula begin in early grades with basic word recognition and strong vocabulary skills. Reading and writing skills are reinforced with regular practice, and student interest is promoted through the use of imaginative and creative writing. Evidence-based argumentation and thesis construction is continuously bolstered in high school grades, allowing students to develop the skills they need to create cogent and clearly written papers. Creative writing is again explored and enhanced through elective topics, including journalism.

Chalk Talk: Dinosaurs: Feathered or Unfeathered?
Since the 19th century, the connection between birds and dinosaurs has been recognized. Such an example includes the late 19th century British anatomist Thomas Huxley, who dissected his chicken dinner and marveled to find that the structure of the avian wishbone greatly resembled the furcula, or wishbone, of a small carnivorous dinosaur he had been studying. The earliest bird, Archaeopteryx, is in fact considered to be a dinosaur because of its skeletal features. However, in spite of the vocal scientific support of Huxley and others, as the 20th century dawned many paleontologists considered birds to be descended from another group of reptiles called thecodonts. These reptiles, not closely related to dinosaurs, share some basic skeletal characteristics with birds. It was not until the 1960s and 1970s when a “dinosaur renaissance” occurred, with the discovery of fossils such as the “raptor” dinosaur Deinonychus and other bird-like carnivores, and the image of slow, dim-witted dinosaurs began to fall by the wayside.
