CURRICULUM MODEL GRADES 10-12
All areas of learning are based on a “Know-Do-Understand” model to support a concept-based competency-driven approach to learning.
Three elements, the Content (Know), Curricular Competencies (Do), and Big Ideas (Understand) all work together to support deeper learning.
• Curriculum for the graduation years will be developed within domains. A domain is a broad category under which one or more subject areas fit. It is proposed that the provincial graduation years curriculum be drawn from the domains shown here.
• For example, the Social Sciences domain includes both the provincial common required learning standards for Social Studies and a variety of provincial elective options (e.g., History, Geography, Civics) and/or locally developed programs.
