Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pembroke District Curriculum
The curriculum that is used in Pembroke was developed at the provincial level to provide a framework for the academic subjects so that all students are being taught to equal standards of learning. The Ontario Curriculum organizes the subjects into the various skills and knowledge components that bring about proficiency in the subject. The subjects also support the development of critical thinking and conceptual understanding. Core academics is a central feature of the educational experience.
The literacy standards involve students being able to read different genres and write several forms of text, using comprehension and writing strategies that demonstrate appropriate or strong achievement. The different areas of students’ writing - content, organization, word choice, voice, sentence structure, and conventions - reflect appropriate or strong achievement. Students who display strong achievement are at a more advanced level which ensures they are prepared for college level reading and writing expectations.

Chalk Talk: Multiple Intelligences
The theory of Multiple Intelligences was developed by Howard Gardner to address the different areas in which people are intelligent. Students may excel at a mixture of domains. The main implication for multiple intelligences is that teachers cannot use a “one size fits all” approach and must find ways to differentiate instruction to meet the diverse learning needs of each student. Intelligence areas include verbal, spatial, visual, kinesthetic, musical, among others. Ideas for visual-kinesthetic learners are having students complete hands-on science experiments, performing a dance to learn body parts in a foreign language, and building 3-D models. Although building a 3-D model sounds like it is mostly related to the sciences, this is not necessarily the case; for example, students can build a 3-D diorama to display an important scene from a book as part of a book report.
