This document describes the expectations for student learning in Alberta, Canada, through the levels of elementary education. The content of the program of studies described focuses on what students are expected to know and be able to do across all the subject areas of early childhood and elementary education. Although the material is organized by subject and by grade levels, integration across content areas and awareness of individual differences within groups are encouraged. Each subject area is discussed in terms of program rationale and philosophy, and general and specific expectations of learners. The discussion of expectations for each subject area concerns topics, objectives, grade level, and basic learning resources. Subject areas covered are: (1) computer literacy; (2) the fine arts; (3) health; (4) language learning (divided into language arts, French language arts, French as a Second Language, Ukrainian Language Arts, the native languages, including Blackfoot language and culture programs, and Cree language and culture program); (5) mathematics; (6) physical education; (7) science; and (8) social studies.
