I was looking online at the new and improved Ministry guidelines for public schools (grades K to 12 now that grade 13 has been abolished) and laughed outloud. This is what I read under Science,
The development of skills and knowledge in science and technology is often related to learning in other subject areas. When planning programs, teachers should emphasize this cross-curricular learning by:
- coordinating the teaching of related content in two or more subject areas
- providing opportunities for students to work towards expectations in two or more subjects within one lesson.
Isn't this what homeschoolers have been doing forever? If the "system" would like some help in diversifying, planning, writing curriculum and the like, why don't they just come and job shadow?
