Science is a required area of study in Saskatchewan’s Curriculum. The aim of the curriculum is to help all Saskatchewan students to develop scientific literacy. The course provides learners with many opportunities to explore, analyze, evaluate, synthesize, appreciate and understand the interrelationships among science, technology, society, and the environment that will affect their personal lives, their careers, and their future. Lesson plans include written instruction, instructional videos, handouts, and assessment tools. Learners will inquire, explore, and experiment to complete lessons and projects.
Assessment will include ongoing home assessments and regular submissions to the DLC teacher. Submissions will include PDF documents, audio and video files, photos of projects. We are flexible, and through regular communication, we are willing to support families to fit the learner's voice and choice.
