Essential Learning Outcomes for the KTCEA Common, Consistent Curriculum
In 2020, our curriculum specialists worked with Elders and other specialists from KTCEA and other northern school authorities to identify Essential Learning Outcomes (ELOs) from the provincial programs of study for Grades 1 to 9 (Language Arts, Social Studies, Math and Science).
Our K-12 programs and services support the vision, mission and values of the five KTCEA First Nations, and are grounded in Nîhiyaw Pimâtisiwin/Cree ways of knowing and being, in a land-based learning environment.
- We reviewed curriculum through the local context of land-based learning, nîhiyâwîwin (Cree ways of knowing and being) and the learning needs of students in KTCEA schools, across four core subjects.
- We also matched the essential learning outcomes with each season of the school year: Fall, Winter and Spring>
