Your input is valued and plays an important role in helping the Ministry make final decisions in developing the final version of the Curriculum. Opportunities for district in-depth curriculum reviews, or piloting a specific, new or revised curriculum may be available for certain subject areas.
UPDATE September 2013 - As BC moves forward with curriculum redesign for all areas of learning, the prior plan for French curriculum will need to be reviewed to ensure there is alignment with the overall curriculum redesign effort. As with other curricular areas, the task will be to ensure/design a concept-based curriculum with a focus on enduring understandings (big ideas) and curricular competencies. The starting point of this will be to review the work done to date on the 2011 draft French curriculum material and consider how to utilize the work in the context of the curriculum redesign directions.
September – December 1st 2011
