Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Orangeville District Curriculum

The schools in Orangeville use the Ontario Curriculum as the framework for teaching and learning across the subject areas. The curriculum framework describes the basic knowledge that students develop within their subjects at each grade. These expected outcomes prepare students for the next steps in their education. Literacy goals are essential in each subject area and students are taught how to read and analyze texts differently depending on whether they are fiction or informational texts.

The Ontario Curriculum goes beyond describing the basic skills and knowledge and also ties those skills to the higher level thinking that develops in tandem with the basic learning. For example, when a student learns the basic of the scientific process they also develop process-oriented thinking, or when a student learns way to revise their writing they are developing self-reflective thinking. It is the combination of basic and advanced skills that thoroughly prepare students for their future pursuits.

Contact our Academic Directors Today at 1-877-545-7737 to Discuss your Child's Strengths and Areas for Improvement.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Orangeville students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.

Orangeville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The Ontario Curriculum is used to guide the learning objectives that students are expected to meet in their courses as well as the scope and sequence for learning. The curriculum focuses on the fundamental concepts that motivate teaching that students need to understand with the foundational skills they learn as well as develop learning and comprehension strategies. Each content area will have a set of core competencies and Aboriginal content—important learning for students in all of Canada—will continue to be embedded. This model establishes standards for learning at each grade-level and each subject emphasizes key critical thinking skills which students should develop.

We currently cover the following Orangeville-area school districts: Upper Grand District School Board and Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board.

Chalk Talk: Behaviorism and Reinforcement

One way teachers can use positive reinforcement is to reward good behavior with tangible rewards, such as homework passes, stickers, candy, etc. It is important that rewards be used sparingly because if they are overused, students’ motivation will be misdirected—they will be motivated to behave and perform certain ways in order to receive a tangible reward, not because they are intrinsically motivated. Meanwhile, negative reinforcement can help strengthen desired behaviors by removing negative stimuli. For example, when a student completes his/her homework (the wanted behavior), the teacher removes the bad grade (the negative stimulus). It is important to note that negative reinforcement is very different from punishment. While the goal of negative reinforcement is to increase a positive behavior by removing something negative, punishment involves decreasing a negative behavior by applying a negative consequence.
