Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Thunder Bay District Curriculum

The Math curriculum introduces students to topics in Number Sense, Measurement, Geometry and Spatial Sense, Patterning and Algebra, and Data Management and Probability. By the end of 8th grade, students will be able to work with exponential notation, solve multi-step problems, apply the order of operations to problem-solving, figure out the surface area of an object and understand the different measurement functions applied to different shapes. Students are also introduced to algebraic expressions and relationships.

In high school, students can choose between taking Academic or Applied Math. For students who plan to study math, science, engineering or medicine at college, Academic Math is advised. The Applied Math courses focus on the same topics but introduce less theoretical math. Areas of higher-order thinking like problem-solving, computational thought, reasoning and critical thinking are developed throughout the subject area learning; these too are laid out within the curriculum in conjunction with the subjects that foster such modes of thinking.

Thunder Bay District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The curriculum used in Thunder Bay was developed at the provincial level so that all students have opportunities to get a rigorous education and have access to programs designed for post-secondary readiness. The Ontario Curriculum is a framework for the subject areas that describes what essential knowledge is required within each subject throughout the grade levels. The curriculum is an instructional tool to help teachers plan units that incorporate standards of learning which will promote student mastery of the subject. In addition to the basic skills and knowledge that a student should gain in the content areas, the Ontario Curriculum also describes the major concepts associated with the subject.

We currently cover the following Thunder Bay-area school districts: Lakehead Public Schools and Thunder Bay Catholic District School Board.

Chalk Talk: Graduation Blues

Graduation can be an emotional time for the parent and the teen. Both can see this time as an ending or as a beginning. Parents and teens may face this time with different emotions which can lead to arguments. To help prevent this parents should open up a conversation with the graduate and allow them to talk about what they see as their plans are. Try to not force the issue or the grad may rebel. Parents should keep in mind that the teen may also see that they are now instantly adults. Parents should try to keep offering help when it comes time for the teen to make decisions. Remember, that this graduate has had a life time of hearing how proud you are and how much you love them, so if they shrug this off at this time, hold onto these memories and remember that anxiety and sadness are common feelings at this time but so is celebration.
