Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Shelburne District Curriculum

English is a subject which helps students learn how to read across the subject span and to express themselves clearly and creatively. The general appreciation of literature is one of the goals of the curriculum as is an anticipation that students will develop cultural awareness and understanding through their reading. The ability to analyze also applies to student writing, and they need to develop processes for writing that include reflective analysis of their words and ideas.

Once students are in high school, the Math courses begin with a solid groundwork in algebra and geometry and offers a chance to opt for the Academic or Applied tracks of these courses. Both tracks maintain the same standards, the difference is that in Academic courses students are taught about theoretical uses for this math while in the Applied courses students are taught about the practical uses of math. This same framework is used as students are introduced to Science and consider which courses they want to pursue during high school.

Shelburne District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The Ontario Curriculum was designed to specify the learning goals at both the elementary and secondary levels encompassing the broad range of academic and enrichment subjects as well as the career-oriented learning options. The curriculum is intended to support student’s curiosity and interest in innovative topics and more subjects can be brought into the curriculum structure. Students have options to take on courses in International Language or Immersion if they are interested in enriching their linguistic background. There are opportunities for students to take many technology courses, communication and media design courses, and extend their learning into extracurricular projects.

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

Keeping Informed: Recent Shelburne Educational News

  • Dual Credits/High Skills Majors - Students in high school are able to advance their academic work through two options. The Dual Credit Programs provides students with a chance to pursue college coursework while earning credits for both high school and college. The High Skills Majors offer students advanced courses in high-demand, technical careers and experiential learning opportunities.
  • Regional Programs - The Dufferin-Peel District offers a way for parents to understand which programs are offered at which schools. This helps parents plan for the educational needs of multiple children in a family and to understand the course of options available for students to pursue.

Chalk Talk: Understanding Reading Level

It’s important to understand what reading level a child is at so that they can experience reading for pleasure and be able to push on to a higher level. Similarly, advanced students need to be challenged and should be given books at an appropriate level as well. Even when teachers have a class made up of students who are at a similar level, there will still be some variance. Students should be reading at their instructional level, which means that they can read a book independently with roughly 90 to 94 percent accuracy (anything below that is too difficult and anything above too easy). Teachers should work with reading specialists and librarians and utilize web-based book finders to locate books at appropriate levels for their readers.
