BC Curriculum – Learning Areas


Today we live in a state of constant change. It is a technology-rich world, where communication is instant and information is immediately accessible. The way we interact with each other personally, socially, and at work has changed forever. Knowledge is growing and information is changing extremely quickly, creating new possibilities. This is the world our students are entering.

British Columbia’s curriculum has been refreshed to reflect what we now know about these worldy changes, as well as current research into teaching and learning. To develop new curriculum, the Ministry consulted with education experts both locally and internationally. They agree that to prepare students for the future, the curriculum must be student-centred and flexible, and maintain a focus on literacy and math skills, while supporting deeper learning.
What and how we teach our students has been redesigned to provide greater flexibility for teachers, while allowing space and time for students to develop their skills and explore their passions and interests. The deep understanding and application of knowledge is at the centre of the new model, as opposed to the memory and recall of facts that shaped education around the globe for many decades.
Our new curriculum highlights student's understanding, knowing and doing across the curriculum, while emphasizing foundational literacy and math skills. 
Every student will continue to be connected to the basics of reading, writing and math. These critical skills are the foundation of B.C.’s education system, and are a key component of developing an educated citizen. Literacy today may involve thinking, reading, writing, sharing, synthesizing, brainstorming and much more. The idea of a "text" has broadened to include digital sources as well. 
B.C. students are at the centre of these changes. Ensuring students are successful, engaged learners continues to be our focus at CTS.
