Provide Your Feedback on the New Draft K-6 Social Studies Curriculum

Mar. 15, 2024

​​​​​Albertans are invited to provide feedback by April 2, 2024 on key learnings in the new draft social studies curriculum. As part of this phase of public engagement, Alberta Education has released two new documents:

The Draft K-12 Social Studies Subject Overview provides a summary of what students learn in each grade and shows how learning progresses as students transition through grades. This is to help parents see the full scope of their child’s learning from K-12. 

The new Draft K-6 Social Studies Curriculum is a document used by teachers to guide student learning, for what they are expected to know, understand and be able to do at the end of each grade level. The draft K-6 curriculum was drafted using the Draft K-12 Social Studies Subject Overview as a guide. 

Note | Draft curriculum for grades 7-12 is not included as part of this process. It will be included in the future. 

An online feedback form is being used to collect Albertans’ feedback on the proposed key learnings outlined in the Draft K-12 Social Studies Subject Overview. Alberta Education will consider all feedback to further refine the new draft K-6 social studies curriculum before it is release for optional classroom piloting during the 2024-25 school year. 

Feedback Form​

The feedback form is open until April 2, 2024, at midnight
