Engineering – Today I had a district Collaborative Inquiry day with some other STEM teachers. We talked and shared several thoughts and ideas. One of the more valuable parts of the day was when we discussed each of our program’s Mission Statements. A Mission Statement is the driving force behind the curriculum, learning objectives, assessments and performances in your educational program. Surprisingly, what we came up with in our Mission Statements starts to look a lot like Core Competencies in the new BC Curriculum.
