For Saskatchewan, curriculum refers to a set of planned and purposeful learning experiences, based on intended learning outcomes and organized around the developmental levels of students. This definition recognizes that learning is a process that requires the active participation of the learner and that children learn in a variety of ways and at different rates.
In 1984, the Directions report set the strategy for the implementation of Saskatchewan’s CORE Curriculum. Saskatchewan Education and boards of education began a process of developing and implementing a common CORE Curriculum.
