Review Process

For Parents

How are learning resources selected for Manitoba classrooms?

Manitoba Education and Training invites teams of teachers nominated by school divisions to examine new books, digital media, and other types of learning resources to provide students and teachers with materials that support the curriculum. Evaluation criteria include how a resource fits the curriculum, the inclusion of appropriate instructional approaches, and whether the resource is well designed, age appropriate, free of bias and appealing to students.

School divisions and schools are responsible for selecting learning resources appropriate for local use. To support them, descriptions of learning resources that have been reviewed and recommended (annotated bibliographies) are provided for schools. Schools may purchase these resources through the Manitoba Learning Resource Centre (formerly the Manitoba Text Book Bureau).


For Educators

Teams of teacher-evaluators nominated from Manitoba schools examine publishers' submissions, evaluate learning resources and make recommendations regarding the suitability of resources for Manitoba classrooms. The selected titles are collected into subject specific annotated bibliographies.


For Publishers

Manitoba Calls for Learning Resources are requests to publishers, producers and distributors for submissions of learning resources for review.

Manitoba Education and Training evaluates and selects learning resources using curriculum fit, instructional design, technical design and social considerations evaluation instruments under the review process outlined in The Learning Resources Evaluation Process (Adobe Icon 90 KB).
