“Curricular Competencies are the skills, strategies, and processes that students develop over time. They reflect the ‘Do’ in the Know-Do-Understand model of curriculum. The Curricular Competencies are built on the Thinking, Communicating, and Personal and Social competencies relevant to disciplines that make up an area of learning.”
