Education - Teaching the Core Competencies

A guide to resources held by UVic Libraries on teaching the Core Competencies of the BC Curriculum

Welcome to UVic Libraries!  My name is Pia Russell, and I'm UVic's Education Librarian.  Throughout this guide I've outlined resources held by UVic Libraries on the teaching of the Core Competencies in the British Columbia's K-12 curriculum.  Thanks for taking a peek at this library guide; let me know if it was helpful.  

This guide was developed by Langara Library Technician Practicum Student, Shannon Hayes.  Shannon completed two successful practicum terms with UVic Libraries in 2018 and 2019.  Thanks for all your great work Shannon!

Your course instructors are the best sources of information for the teaching of these Core Competencies. Ask them for their recommendations for useful introductory resources.

Let me know if you have recommendations for additional resources to be listed on this guide, I am always looking for great new resources.

Since 2013 British Columbia's curriculum has undergone a considerable redesign. For additional information about BC's new K-12 Curriculum, visit the Ministry of Education website or UVic Libraries' guide on BC's curriculum.

The redesigned curriculum focuses on the following three themes (more info here):
