Creating Competency Rich Experiences in your Elementary Classroom
Presented by: Krystal Abrahamowicz
Located at: FFCA - Learning Centre
110 - 7000 Railway St. SE, Calgary, AB
About the Session


Competencies are combinations of knowledge, skills and attitudes that students develop and apply for successful learning, living, and working. They emphasize aspects of learning that apply within and across all subject areas.  Alberta Education has identified 8 competencies which teachers are to promote the development of within their classrooms. 

In school, competency rich experiences help students to develop and apply the skills they will require for future living and working. In every subject area, when we explore the relationship between Programs of Study and competencies, students develop strong skills and knowledge for learning, living, and their futures.

In this session, participants will:

  • Explore the relationship between the Programs of Study they currently teach and Alberta Education’s 8 competencies
  • Evaluate their current inclusion of competencies in learning designs, classrooms routines, and procedures
  • Create a personal plan of how they will use competency rich experiences in their programs

This learning opportunity is being offered through curriculum implementation funding from Alberta Education.
