A Look at BC’s new Draft Curriclum

In October 2013, The BC Ministry of Education introduced a Draft Curriculum for most Kindergarten to Grade Nine subjects.  While this curriculum is not in place, teachers have been examining it since last fall  This video is a quick look at four areas of BC’s new Draft Curriculum:

1. The BIG Ideas, also known as Enduring Understandings.
2. The Learning Standards, which are most identifiable in the current curriculum as the Prescribed Learning Outcomes related to the Skills, Processes and Knowledge students are expected to attain for each subject for each grade.
3. The Cross-Curricular Competencies
4. And Implementation Links which are still under development.
