International Benchmarks: Alberta

I guess I'll just go through these in order. I doesn't take long.


There are two basic aims of senior high school English language arts. One aim is to encourage, in students, an understanding an appreciation of the significance and artistry of literature. A second aim is to enable each student to understand and appreciate language and to use it confidently and competently for a variety of purposes, with a variety of audiences and in a variety of situations for communication, personal satisfaction and learning.

The Common Core omits the first aim entirely. Also, "personal satisfaction."
