Expanding Our Roots
New Sustainable Resources 11/12 Call for Resources
Wael Afifi- Learning Initiatives Branch, Ministry of Education
The new Sustainable Resources grade 11 course is designed as a survey course combining Forestry, Agriculture, Fisheries, Mining, and Energy components. At the grade 12 level, there are four resource specific courses in the areas of Forestry, Agriculture, Fisheries, and Mining. Any of these five courses will satisfy the grade 11-12 Graduation Program Science requirement. The document will supersede the Resource Sciences 11 and 12: Forests IRP (1997) and the Agriculture Curriculum guide and Resource book (1993).
The ministry has recently issued a call to all publishers and educational suppliers to submit learning resources for Sustainable Resources 11 and 12. The link to the call and the draft curriculum correlation form can be found at: www.bced.gov.bc.ca/irp_resources/lr/supwhatsnew.htm
