Curriculum-making is an intentional act of designing, actualizing, and assessing instruction and learning to align with required Ministry of Education outcomes/objectives in all subject areas. Curriculum is created through the interaction of educators, learners, milieus and subject matter, including ELA, Social Studies, Mathematics, PAA, Sciences, Fine Arts and Physical Education. Considerations for planning, intellectual practice, assessment and building learning experiences will be aspects of this course, including connections to Indigenous knowledge and a focus on lesson and unit planning for literacy across the curriculum (with specific attention to technological literacy and the classroom actualization of key resources that support language and literacy development). This course addresses three of six semester hours related to reading and language methodology content for secondary teacher candidates.
