Curriculum is comprised of four interrelated commonplaces: educators, learners, milieus and subject matter. Curriculum-making is an intentional act of designing, actualizing, and assessing instruction and learning to align with required Ministry of Education outcomes in all subject areas. This course will focus on lesson and unit planning in ELA and support teaching literacy across the curriculum. Specific attention will be given to Indigenous knowledges and perspectives as well as the adaptive dimension of curriculum. This advanced ELA course addresses three of the six semester hours required by the Saskatchewan Professional Teachers Regulatory Board (SPTRB) related to reading and language methodology content for elementary teacher candidates.
