Intended for parents as a companion to the Alberta Curriculum Guides, this summary, in English- and French-language versions, uses an "at a glance" schematic to list the curricular goals for Grade 9 in Alberta. In addition to English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies, goals cover health and life skills, physical education, optional subject areas (ethics, fine and performing arts, languages other than English, career and technology studies, environmental and outdoor education), and supports for learning, such as distance learning and an Integrated Occupational Program. The summary includes parent information on accessing additional information about the curriculum and learning resources, other languages that may be available at a child's school, and Web sites for additional information on education in Alberta.
