Districts around the province are currently either looking at how to implement to new curriculum or are in the process of following some sort of process. The revised curriculum has changed the content we teach, the way we assess that content, the way we report student learning, and the inclusion of Core Competencies: Critical and Creative Thinking, Personal and Cultural Identity, and Communication. With all this patchwork of implementation (with the timeline being that the K-9 is in the classrooms by September, 2016 and the 10-12 curriculum by September 2017), there needs to be some way to share our work and processes.
#BCEdChat is currently going through a great series on the new curriculum, with the last one (moderated by Ian Landry and me) being implementation. To support the collaboration of the great work being done around the province on the implementation, I would like to open up the comments for this blog for those that have ideas around the implementation: what processes you are using, who is involved, what is the financial support, and other questions that I feel need to be answered to help educators understand the immensity of this change.
Please comment and include your name, school district (if you wish). Collaboration and sharing is one of the 21st Skills we keep talking about, let’s model this!
