AB draft K-6 social studies curriculum containing more Indigenous content ready to pilot

The Government of Alberta’s new draft curriculum for grade K-6 social studies will be ready to pilot this Fall following a variety of adjustments. Changes include providing students with more consistent education about Canada’s diversity and First Nations, Métis, and Inuit contributions and perspectives. The draft curriculum will have kindergarten students learning about community and belonging. First Nations, Métis, and Inuit content has been added to the curriculum in grades 1, 2, and 3; and content on discrimination and racism has been added to Grades 3 and 6. CBC reports that residential schools are not mentioned in the draft social studies curriculum.
