About the Session:

Target Audience: K-3 Teachers are encouraged to attend.

Are you wondering how you might approach the new curriculum?  If so, this session is for you. 

This session will provide opportunities to explore the changes within the English Language Arts and Literature Curriculum (ELAL) and Math K-3 curricula.   We will use Subject Introductions, Numeracy and Literacy Progression, Competencies and refer to the Ministerial Order as supporting documents that provide deeper information on the intent and the feel of the new curricula.   We will investigate key learning outcomes in the new ELAL and Math curricula through dedicated time to collaboratively dive into both.


 At the end of this session, educators will:

  • Improve familiarity of the architecture and layout of the 2022 ELAL and Math curriculum documents
  • Increase efficiency of planning time through intentional overlap of Math and ELAL KUSPS (Knowledge, Understanding, Skills and Procedures)
  • Increase understanding of how supporting documents such as the competencies, subject introductions, and progressions can enhance instruction of new learning outcomes
