Nova Scotia Learning Outcomes Framework

The learning outcomes framework comprises a series of curriculum outcomes statements describing what knowledge, skills, and attitudes students are expected to demonstrate as a result of their cumulative learning experiences in the primary–graduation continuum. Through an ongoing process, the Department of Education is developing a learning outcomes framework for each area of the public school program.

This document provides an overview of the learning outcomes framework organized by grade level and subject area. It is intended to serve as a brief survey of expected learning outcomes and as a tool to assist teachers in program planning. The connections among learning outcomes reflect natural affinities among subject areas and facilitate the design of a balanced, integrated program.
