K-9 Curricum Redesign

The Ministry of Education is redesigning the K-9 curriculum and has released drafts for English language arts, math and social studies, with others to follow.

A review of the drafts is now underway and is expected to continue throughout the 2013-14 school year, prior to implementation. Details can be found here.

The ministry says the proposed new curriculum is intended to be “flexible, competency-driven, concept-based and inclusive,” with a focus on big ideas rather than facts.
