For the past two years, the Ministry of Education has been consulting with stakeholders on revising BC’s K-12 curriculum. Much of what is being suggested aligns with what you’ve said on this engagement site as well – things like:
- Emphasize important 21st competencies but don’t forget the essential elements.
- Reduce the number of learning outcomes to give teachers and students more time and freedom to explore areas of interest.
- Focus on key concepts and higher level thinking skills.
- Maximize opportunities for personalized learning yet still maintain strong and consistent assessment standards.
