Introducing the Essential Citizenship Competencies

Grades K – 4, 5 – 12

The Essential Citizenship Competencies provide a framework to explore questions of citizenship. The Essential Citizenship Competencies Wrap is a thinking strategy that presents questions to support reading, thinking, and learning about a text, an experience, or an issue using a structured process. Students are invited to place the situation or issue in the centre and wrap it in Essential Citizenship Competencies  questions. As they collaborate to answer these questions, teachers have seen student understanding slowly and steadily broaden and deepen. These questions can be included in your planning, learning, and assessment to deepen students’ justice orientation. Use the suggested grade level option that works best for your students.
