The BC Teachers' Federation closed its call today to select 16 representatives in order to begin work on re-writing the curriculum for American Sign Language, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Punjabi and Spanish as second languages.
BCTF invited BCATML to help nominate candidate representatives to the second languages curriculum team. The BCTF will appoint a total of 16 active BCTF members to the curriculum team; 2 representatives for each language. Where possible, a candidate was selected to represent the elementary voice and another candidate for secondary. It is expected, the Ministry will select representatives from independent schools as well as members from administration to assist. Work is slated to begin over the summer months, or early fall.
