Alberta Education Offering Virtual Curriculum Sessions

Jan. 27, 2022

Alberta Education is hosting virtual sessions from Jan. 31 to Feb. 28 to enable communities to share local insights and unique perspectives on the draft K-6 curriculum. Sessions will include focused, small group conversations facilitated by independent engagement specialists. During each session, the draft K-6 social studies design blueprint or one draft K-6 subject will be considered and discussed so Albertans can provide insightful feedback.

Albertans can sign up for notifications about upcoming engagements and register for sessions on the Alberta Education website.

This spring, Alberta’s government will carefully consider the feedback from all engagement opportunities and classroom piloting. This input will be used to finalize the social studies design blueprint, develop the corresponding draft social studies curriculum and further revise all subjects in the draft K-6 curriculum.
