Welcome to our UBC Teacher Education Practicum resource site to support planning using the redesigned British Columbia Curriculum. This site provides a guide to some resources for planning and preparing learning experiences for your practicum and once you enter the profession. You will also likely encounter alternatives in your coursework in the program.
The BC curriculum envisages a shift from planning a single subject unit with learning objectives and prescribed learning outcomes to a more connected approach specific to your students’ learning needs. Planning occurs using the curriculum model—Content, Curricular Competencies and Big Ideas. Used alone or in any combination, they are what students are expected to know, do, and understand.
