We want to give all students the best possible start in life so that they can meet the demands of living in the 21st century. This evening’s conversations will provide you with some of the foundational information regarding this exciting work and lead you to your participation in the Online Survey.
Alberta Education is moving forward in the development of new Kindergarten to Grade 12 provincial curriculum in all grades across the subject areas of Language Arts (English, Français, French), Math, Social Studies, Sciences, Arts and Wellness education.
During the course of this work, we are exploring opportunities to gather valued and meaningful feedback from Albertans in every corner of the province. The broad based engagement is an opportunity for the many voices of Albertans and stakeholders across the province to provide valued input into the curriculum development process. The Fall 2016 online provincial curriculum survey is the first of many opportunities to gather feedback. The survey can be accessed at: http://curriculumsurvey.alberta.ca.
There are two parts of the survey. Part A gives Albertans an opportunity to share their thoughts about the Government of Alberta’s general direction for the development of all new curriculum. It will likely take you about seven minutes to complete this first part of the survey. Everyone wanting to participate in the survey will need to complete Part A.
Once you have completed Part A, you have the option to move to Part B where you will answer questions about what you see as the strengths and gaps in our current curriculum. You will create your ‘own journey’ through Part B based on subject areas of interest. You will be asked to select the specific grade levels and subject areas that you would like to provide feedback on. Part B may take you between 15 minutes and one hour to complete depending on the number of subjects and grade-specific questions you choose to answer.
Albertans without technology are encouraged to stop by their local libraries or learning commons to complete the survey.
