Updates and News


New Release - Educational Resources

Pre-Publication version of the revised SSHG and CWS curriculum in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action #62 and #63.

This document was used at the regional implementation sessions and only includes the strands and courses that were revised. For ease in implementation all of the changes and additions are highlighted in grey.

"We Speak for the Land" - Summary Report

This document is a valuable resource in which Indigenous perspectives/voices are shared on Treaties in Ontario. It forms a large part of Ontario’s journey of reconciliation with Indigenous peoples and is a good resource that teachers can use to teach about Indigenous peoples living in Ontario and Treaties.

Literacy K-12  

SCOPE: Collective Efficacy 5

This is the fifth in a series of research synopses that documents the impact of collective efficacy, and the strong link between teacher efficacy and student achievement. This research synopsis shows that collective efficacy had the strongest independent effect on achievement than any other variable in the study.

ALERT: Make Room for Supporting Understanding of Graphic Text

Although graphic texts, such as infographics, may at first appear relatively accessible, effective readers need support to understand the way visual and print language works to convey meaning. This new ALERT helps teachers support adolescent readers to derive meaning, both explicit and implicit, from the graphic texts they encounter.

Click on < Classroom Learning 7-12 / ALERT > in the left menu under Classroom Educator on Literacy K-12.


Release of the video series: Indigenous Education: Pedagogy to Practice

These video resources were created to support the implementation of the Social Studies, Grades 4 – 6 and History, Grades 7, 8 and 10 curriculum revisions that were undertaken in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action #62 and #63.
