Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Perth District Curriculum

In English, the development of literacy and communication skills is critical to student learning. These broad topics are taught so that they reach across content areas and students read non-fiction alongside their literary texts. The writing portion of the curriculum emphasizes the development of clear expression, proper use of language, a range in voice and purpose, and thoughtful analysis of topics. One element of the English curriculum which has developed in past years is the Media Studies strand.

Students are offered many unique learning opportunities through programs like International Baccalaureate (IB), Outdoor Education, Fine Arts programs, Music Education, and in the skill and technology-oriented classes that are becoming increasingly available. Students are able to connect knowledge from core classes into the electives through projects and independent study.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Perth 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.

Perth District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The instructional process in Perth’s schools is guided by the Ontario Curriculum which is a comprehensive plan consisting of clear expectations, broad learning objectives, and a combination of academic and enrichment subjects for students to explore. The curriculum is designed to provide foundational skills and knowledge during the elementary years and to deepen subject area focus during middle and secondary school. Throughout these years, students are also able to integrate subject areas that they are particularly interested in exploring into their curricular experience.

We currently cover the following Perth-area school districts: Upper Canada District School Board and Huron-Perth Catholic District School Board.

Chalk Talk: The Theory of Constructivism

In constructivist classrooms, students are learning actively—by doing and having the opportunity to take academic risks—and are provided with authentic experiences that are relevant to their lives. A schema, or scheme, refers to the cognitive structure that helps students organize knowledge they have gained. Two important components of Piaget’s theory are assimilation and accommodation. The assimilation of knowledge requires that a student take a new idea and fit it into what he/she already knows, or the existing schema. Accommodation is more complex, however, as it is occurs when a new idea doesn't fit into a student’s existing knowledge and he/she must rework, or change, the schema. When a child first sees a tiger cub, he/she may think of it is as a cat—this is assimilating. When the child realizes that a tiger grows up to be much larger than a house cat and is orange and has stripes, he/she accommodates this information.
