Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Chestermere District Curriculum
The curriculum allows students to explore and come up with solutions for complex real-world questions and problems, have some choices in their learning, have access to a wide range of collaborative learning tools, clearly understand what is expected of them, and learn about themselves as learners and how to assess their own learning. The district emphasizes student-centered classrooms (students working actively, with teachers acting as mentors, coaches, and guides) and blended learning (students seamlessly moving back and forth from face-to-face to digital learning environments).

- Chestermere High Music Program Receives Large Gift from Calgary Family - Calgary’s Herb Vandernet spent two years building his basement around an enormous organ with 300 pipes, but when he passed away, his family wanted to donate the instrument—made 80 years ago—to someone or someplace that would give it a good home. The family received many requests from far and wide but ultimately decided to keep the organ close to home and donate it to Chestermere High School. Music teacher Lael Johnston had planned to have the students play the organ—“a wonderful gift”—during their first band concert of the 2015-16 school year.

Chalk Talk: The Four Foundations in the Design of Learning
Rocky View Schools uses the Four Foundations in the Design of Learning: constructivism (students construct new knowledge by incorporating it into their existing learning), the development of metacognition (the ability for students to think about their own thinking and learning), the mastery of learner competencies (what students are expected to be able to do and learn), and inclusion (allowing for students of all abilities and learning styles to learn). In terms of learning competencies, Rocky View expects the 21st century learner to be a self-directed learner, an innovator, information and media literate, a collaborator, a critical thinker, a problem solver, globally aware, etc. With the help of their teachers, students develop learning goals for themselves and put together digital Learner Portfolios that follow their journeys as they become 21st century learners.
