BCATML will host another Twitter chat on Monday, April 24th at 6:00 pm. We invite teachers to give their insight and views on the draft curricula for second languages (other than French).
This hour-long chat will be moderated by BCATML Secretary and Curriculum Team Writer Antonella Garcia (@msagarcia314) and BCATML President Rome Lavrencic (@RLavrencic). The chat will use a Question1 / Answer1 format with five pre-generated questions to help the Curriculum Team Writing members with revising the draft curricula. The five questions that will be asked during the chat are:
Q1 In what ways do the curriculum elements (big ideas, curricular competencies, content) work well together? How do they not?
Q2 Do the curriculum elements in your language area reflect what is important for all students to learn at each grade level?
Q3 Which curriculum elements require greater clarity or more elaborations? Please specify.
Q4 How can L2 teachers incorporate Aboriginal perspectives and knowledge into the redesigned curricula? What resources are needed?
Q5 What questions, concerns or additional feedback do you have on the second languages draft curricula?
