OFS3HLC and OFSHEEA Financial Literacy Project

Written by:  Susan Davies, Michelyn Gallant, Kedei Ottoh and Jane Witte

The following links will lead you to lesson plans and supporting documents to teach financial literacy for Family Studies and Social Science courses from grades 9 - 12. You will notice that each course approaches financial literacy from a different angle. All lessons offer both DI and MI strategies and follow Assessment As, For and Of, learning practices. We hope that you enjoy the lessons.

OTF Summer Institutes 2016

OTF Summer Workshop Registration is now open! 

This summer, the Ontario Teachers’ Federation is offering a variety of professional learning events that will give you time to learn, reflect on your classroom practice, and collaborate with peers. The institutes, three-day workshops, are facilitated by experienced teacher facilitators in various locations across the province.

At each workshop, participants will come together with colleagues to reflect on their teaching practice, draw on the expertise of teacher leaders and peers, share what works and what does not, network and collaborate, examine resources and programs that are available from a variety of organizations and assess how these resources may be used in their classrooms.

1) Teaching Real Life Money Management Using Simple Technology facilitated by Kimberley Crupi (Aug 2-4 in Ottawa)
