What Difference Did Support for Implementation Make?
How do we know that implementation has occurred? The only real way to answer the question is to examine how the curriculum is lived out in schools and in classrooms across the province. In examining the results of the social studies survey it is clear that many teachers are self reporting that they are implementing key elements of the new curriculum in their classrooms. Below we offer some further “artifacts” that demonstrate how the curriculum is being implemented and what it looks like in the classrooms and schools of the region. These exemplars of implementation are shared by members of the Social Studies Advisory Committee, the ERLC Regional Team and by teachers from the region. They reflect the relationships and trust that have been developed within the region over the past six and a half years.
