‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚ÄčCore Competencies: The Foundation of Learning at Riverside

‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚ÄčWhat are CC's and Why are they Important?

Core Competencies are the foundation of BC Curriculum (Big Ideas, Curricular Competencies and Content) and learning at Riverside. CC's focus on the development and acquisition of intellectual, personal, and social and emotional proficiencies that will enhance the learning process and life-long learning. They are woven into the curriculum and are already naturally embedded in how we learn each and every day. Through mindful self-reflection and self-assessment, and capturing evidence of learning, students will be able to have a deeper understanding of how they learn most effectively and develop stronger learning skill sets.

What do Core Competencies Look Like at Riverside?

All students in grade 9-12 are required to complete one self-reflection on one of the core competencies for every class. Student self-reflection will be posted on their ‚Äčpersonal Edublogs, where they can be made private or public. There are a variety of templates and learning resources provided below. 

Things to Consider:

  • ‚ÄčSelf-reflection can take a variety of forms. 
  • Self-reflection should include student strengths, stretches and goals in relation and connection to Core Competencies, in a variety of learning areas. 
  • Students should take ownership of the their learning and reflective process throughout the year.
  • Provide specific evidence of your learning and examples in your Edublogs post and/or connected with your reflection. 
  • Focus on "I can" statements, and what a student is able to do.
