Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Saskatoon District Curriculum
Public schools in Saskatoon use the curriculum developed by the province, which is now called the Renewed Curriculum. This curriculum was crafted by researching curriculum used across Canada and in other nations. The Renewed Curriculum provides a framework for the subject areas and details the standards of learning for each grade level in the subject matter. It describes what a child should know or be able to do in the process of becoming proficient in a subject.
The Curriculum additionally describes the conceptual foundations within the different subjects and also provides Broad Areas of Learning that are expected outcomes for students. Standardized assessments that students take on a provincial-wide basis are aligned to the standards of learning within the Renewed Curriculum.

Chalk Talk: Deciding On Your Career
High school students are very pressured into choosing the field to get into with post secondary education. There is a lot of time and effort students must put in when making drastic life decisions. In order to feel less anxious about the choices to make, students should know exactly (or most of) what they want. Research is integral in this choice as you must know what opportunities are open for you. You must research on what the world is looking for at the moment and how you can make a change in this world. For example, if you are interested in technology, it would be very helpful to become an engineer or a technician as it coincides with your interests and we are getting through the digital revolution. Try to learn more about the field you are getting into. By borrowing library books about topics you may learn about in the future that relate to the field, you will realize if you find the information interesting or not. This will help you decide if you can get through the years of additional schooling learning about those topics while also getting a head start.
