Toronto Catholic District School Board

Academics

Using the gospel values as the anchor for all learning, we are committed to assisting students to become confident, reflective and critical thinkers who apply Catholic values to life's opportunities, challenges and choices.

The development of literacy and numeracy capacity is embedded in all curricular areas.

Comprehensive Literacy

Comprehensive literacy is rooted in policy mandated in the Ministry of Education curriculum documents:  The Kindergarten Program and the Ontario Curriculum Grades 1-8 Language.  Comprehensive Literacy addresses all four strands of the Language Arts curriculum including reading, writing, oral language and media literacy.  Comprehensive literacy includes a balance of instructional approaches and authentic and ongoing assessment.  Instruction is planned and delivered to meet the needs of all students.  Time is set aside each day for whole group, small group and individualized instruction. 

Numeracy

In today's data driven world, the need for school graduates to understand mathematical concepts and be able to use reasoning strategies to make decisions has never been more important. Students learn math best through activities that encourage them to explore, think about what they are exploring, solve problems using information they have gathered themselves, and explain how they reached their solutions. Students learn more easily when they connect mathematical concepts and procedures with their own experience. Through problem solving that involves the application and communication of concepts in Mathematics, students will gain a deeper knowledge of mathematical concepts and will develop a positive attitude towards the study of Mathematics.
