With respect to the diversity in learning throughout Canada, the TREE program attempts to ask broad questions that can be adapted to fit curricular outcomes in each province and territory. Starting at a Grade 8 focus, teachers are encouraged to apply and adapt the content of the TREE program to meet any grade level and curricular outcomes fit for their jurisdiction. Please provide the CLS Education team with feedback regarding curricular outcomes you met in your engagement with the TREE program. Such feedback will serve as testimony to the range of this program and enable us to deepen the base of future editions of TREE!
