"Our daily lives are interwoven with geography. Each of us lives in a unique place
and in constant interaction with our surroundings. Geographic knowledge and skills
are essential for us to understand the activities and patterns of our lives and the lives
of others. "

Gilbert M. Grosvenor Center for Geographic Education,
Why Geography Is Important (2007)

In Canadian and world studies, students develop skills, knowledge and understanding,
and attitudes that will serve them both inside and outside the classroom, including in the
world of work and as responsible citizens in the various communities to which they belong.
The focus of teaching and learning in the Canadian and world studies curriculum is the
development of ways of thinking and of transferable skills that students need in order
to acquire and apply knowledge and understanding. Students apply these concepts of
thinking and skills in a variety of contexts to examine information critically; to assess
the significance of events, developments, and processes; to develop an understanding
of and respect for different points of view; to reach supportable conclusions; and to
propose solutions to, and courses of actions to address, real problems.
