Making Connections Curriculum Workshop

New BC Curriculum Model of “Know-Do-Understand”

A great collaborative and informative day was spent with several educators from around the district on our recent Curriculum NID in January.  “Making Connections” was focussed on the new BC Curriculum to further understand the relationship between core and curricular competencies and how these fit within the model of “Know-Do-Understand”.  More follow up sessions coming from the Curriculum team in the future.  Check out our district professional development websites for updates:


Sample Language Arts units/lessons highlighting the connection between core and curricular competencies
Educators hard at work with meaningful discussions and collaboration around core competency student self-assessments
Importance of language used with students to establish clear understanding of the core competencies. Use of a word wall in the classroom to promote the development of core competency student-friendly language is an essential tool.
