Session Location:
Star Catholic Board Office 4906 50 Avenue, Leduc, AB
About the Session:

This series will look at unpacking the understanding surrounding Concept Based Curriculums and learning through 3 sessions designed to step participants through the understanding a little at a time. The sessions are well designed for administrators and/or school learning teams who would like to engage their staffs in the same process but would be valuable to teachers interested in the subject as well.

All powerpoints and handouts will be designed and provided so schools have time to work through the process with their own staff.
