The Primary Program: A Framework for Teaching

The Primary Program is a guide to effective practices for primary educators it provides a comprehensive, general overview for primary educators.  It does not duplicate in detail material available elsewhere (for example, in the performance standards).  Cross-references appearing within this document will indicate sources of further information about topics that are discussed here in broad terms.  The Primary Program describes and exemplifies the first four years of The Kindergarten to Grade 12 Education Plan (B.C. Ministry of Education 1994). Building on the philosophy introduced in the 1990 document, it incorporates information on how policies and provincially prescribed curriculum can be interpreted and implemented.

The Primary Program integrates current knowledge and research on learning and teaching.
