The Blue Mountains District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum provides the framework for the instructional process for Bluewater and Bruce-Grey Districts. Additional curricular models like the Catholic Curriculum, Advanced Placement, or Outdoor Education are also used for their course offerings. These curriculum provide educators with a common understanding of what students are expected to learn at each grade level and offer families a chance to understand the progression that students make through their subjects. During the elementary years, the classes in English, Math, Science and other core and elective subjects lay a foundation of knowledge from which a deeper conceptual understanding can grow.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the The Blue Mountains District Curriculum
In secondary school, English instruction focuses on literary and non-fiction analysis, writing development, communication, and media. Students are able to move on into classes based in literature and its analysis, media communications, or business writing. In Math, students start with a year-long course in concepts of algebra, geometry, and data analysis. In Science, the foundational focus is on the concepts in earth and environmental science, biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering.
Students will have many options in career-related courses that recognize emerging trends and skills that students need to graduate into a highly globalized and technology-driven world. From graphic design to building information systems, students can take courses which will call upon them to use the foundation of knowledge and strategies developed in their core subjects. The choices are designed to allow students to determine their own developing interests and opportunities for independent study.

Chalk Talk: Science Classes for College Success
When looking at classes for a teen that will help them as they prepare for college admissions, science can help grab the attention of those that make admission decisions. It is recommended that a student take three years of laboratory science classes, but four will help make a transcript even more attractive. Students need to take biology, chemistry, physics and then an advanced class in one of these is recommended. If it is possible, without bringing the student’s grades down, they should take the highest level that is available, possible advanced placement courses or even college level, for credit. With an eye towards this section of the transcript, the student will be well on their way to being accepted at the college of their choice.
