The Formative Years. Circular P1J1. Provincial Curriculum Policy for the Primary and Junior Divisions of the Public and Separate Schools of Ontario.
Ontario Dept. of Education, Toronto.
As a statement of Provincial goals and curriculum objectives for primary and junior divisions of Ontario elementary schools, this circular is intended to stimulate school self-evaluation, particularly in the basic skills area. The major responsibility for curricular planning however, rests with the school and the individual teacher. Province goals specify that the curriculum allow each child to acquire basic skills, develop self worth, patriotism, and moral responsibility. Aims related to communications (language and mathematics) are outlined separately for primary and junior divisions according to the following curricular areas: arithmetic, measurement, geometry, listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Aims related to the arts and environmental studies are combined for primary and junior divisions. They include perception and expression, drama, music, visual arts, physical education, health, values, decision-making, social relationships, science and geography, and Canadian studies. Specific skills and learning activities contributing to each of these objectives are also listed. (CP)
