Saskatchewan Arts Education Curriculum

The arts education curriculum is designed to address the learning needs of all students. The curriculum allows for both disciplinary and interdisciplinary studies.  To achieve deep understanding of the arts, and fully appreciate the arts throughout life, students need to study content and processes that reside at the core of each of the four strands: dance drama, music and visual arts.

Teaching and Learning Materials

There are several ways to access core and additional resources recommended by the Ministy as well as the many resources RPS has purchased to support Arts Education instruction in schools.

1. Division Resources

  • Media Scheduling (Media Kits, DVDs and Videos, Aboriginal Kits, etc.)
  • Music Loft (Choral Music, Musicals, Recorder Music, etc.)

Bringing Métis Children’s Literature to Life is a guidebook for teachers to support the
children’s literature published by Gabriel Dumont Institute (GDI). Not only will teachers be
able to teach about the Métis but they will also utilize strategies that foster and promote
literacy development (listening, speaking, reading, writing, viewing, and representing).
