Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Victoria District Curriculum

The math curriculum seeks to develop a range of mathematical thinking skills in students. By the time students begin high school, they will have been introduced to proportional reasoning, operations using whole numbers, fractions and integers, linear relations and the quantitative connections they represent, the ability to make sense of 3D objects, and data collection and representation. When students are in high school, they will be able to apply these to lessons in statistics and their practical uses, geometry and its use in design, and the math that underlies technological innovation.

The English language arts curriculum helps students master the language and develop an appreciation for literature. Word study is important throughout the school years, and students go from mastering words to being able to grasp the nuances in language and works of literature. Through reading, students are expected to broaden their ability to think critically, make connections, and express ideas that emerge from the text through discussion or presentation. Another goal of the English language arts curriculum is to develop inquiry and reflection skills while deepening students understanding of self and society.

Victoria District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

In Victoria, the public schools use the curriculum that was developed by the British Columbia Ministry of Education. This curriculum describes what children should know and what skills they should develop in order to be proficient in the academic subjects. There is also a focus on core competencies beyond literacy, numeracy, and core content knowledge. The Ministry of Education defines the core competencies, which are developed in all subject matter, as communication, thinking, and social and personal development. These are considered intellectual and personal proficiencies that students need to have upon graduation.

We currently cover the following Victoria-area school districts: Greater Victoria School District, Island Catholic School Board.

Chalk Talk: Do Colleges Read Resumes?

College admissions offices receive a lot of mail, and they don’t have a ton of time to spend reading it all, so adding more paperwork might seem like a risk. A college resume is designed with this in mind, though. Resumes are one page long and formatted in bulleted, succinct paragraphs so that they’re easy to scan. The student’s name, contact information, and grade point average are centered at the top for easy reference, and below that, the student’s extracurricular involvement, ranked from most to least important, arranged in groups with central themes, are laid out across the rest of the page, with brief descriptions of each activity and the dates the student was involved. They are meant to be read quickly, and the only style guide to keep in mind is brevity and coherence. Considering how chock-full of useful information they are, the resume is one of the most important parts of a college application.
