Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Quesnel District Curriculum
Quesnel School District No. 28—along with all schools in the province—is in the process of implementing a new college and career preparatory curriculum. The curriculum is changing to reflect trends in learning and help students to focus on learning in greater depth. The curriculum will also emphasize proficiency in the foundational skills students learn in each subject area as well as develop critical thinking and communication skills. The assessment will be updated so it is relevant for the new curriculum.
While the new curriculum will ensure that essential elements of learning are applied consistently, individual teachers will have freedom and will have the ability to personalize learning and differentiate instruction to meet the diverse needs of each their students. Each content area will have a set of core competencies, and Aboriginal content—important learning for students in BC and all of Canada—will continue to be embedded. The new curriculum will be fully and officially implemented in grades K-9 by the 2016-17 school year and in grades 10-12 by 2017-18.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy 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 very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
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: The Long ‘E’ Sound
The long ‘E’ sound is one of the vowel sounds students are introduced to at the primary grade levels. Students can distinguish this from the short ‘E’ by learning that the long ‘E’ sounds exactly like how they would say the name of the letter “E.” The long ‘E’ sound is usually formed by a combination of two vowels together. Words with “ee,” such as bee and queen make this sound. Many words with “ie,” such as chief and field, also make this sound. This is because, with certain vowel combinations, the first vowel remains silent. When an ‘E’ occurs at the end of a syllable, such as in me and area, it is a long vowel. When ‘Y’ acts as a vowel, as in baby, it can sometimes sound like a long ‘E.’ The digraph “ea” is an interesting case because it sometimes makes a short ‘E’ sound and sometimes makes a long ‘E’ sound. Words such as bead, leak, and treat contain a long ‘E’ sound.
