Why is Canadian education so important nowadays?
The Canadian education system values pedagogy and the benefits of adapting teaching strategies to best meet student needs. Students play an active role in their learning by setting learning goals and understanding the success criteria in any subject and for any task. Teachers therefore use a differentiated approach to reach all students based on individual learning styles. A variety of activities and even assessments are presented to students so they best learn to apply what they are leaning in the classroom to real life situations.
What is the Canadian curriculum all about in a nutshell?
Each province in Canada has it’s own curriculum but they all share important similarities. They work on teaching the whole child/student by integrating teaching strategies into their planning that meet social, emotional, physical and cognitive needs. The Canadian curriculum invites students to develop 21st century skills such as critical and creative thinking, collaboration, communication and problem solving.
How the teachers are trained in the curriculum?
Teachers need a Bachelor’s degree followed by a Bachelor of Education. The Bachelor of Education has a practical component where future teacher candidates will be required to complete work placements in more than one learning cycle (Primary, Junior, Intermediate or Secondary).
How are students evaluated under the Canadian curriculum?
Students are active participants in the assessment process. They demonstrate an understanding of success by co-construction success criteria with their teacher. They participate in self assessments and peer assessments to further understand what it means to meet the learning outcomes and expectations of the curriculum
What are the benefits of the Canadian curriculum (the "5Cs")?
Critical Thinking & Problem Solving, Communication, Collaboration, Citizenship (global and local) and Creativity & Innovation allow students to become global citizens that can have a positive impact on the world around them.
