It’s Here!

We’ve been hearing about the new curriculum for Social Studies (grades 1 – 6) and for History and Geography (grades 7 – 8).

It’s Here.

Goals of History

It’s Goal:

The social studies, history, geography, and Canadian and world studies programs will enable students to become responsible, active citizens within the diverse communities to which they belong. As well as becoming critically thoughtful and informed citizens who value an inclusive society, students will have the skills they need to solve problems and communicate ideas and decisions about significant developments, events, and issues. (p  6)

I just have to read it, learn it and then be ready to teach it to Teacher Candidates in September. Luckily, we don’t HAVE to implement it until September 2014.
