OFSHEEA Wants Your Ideas

Do you have an article, resource or idea you would like to contribute to the tri-annual newsletter, OFSHEEA Ideas?

Newsletter entries can be submitted via email to newsletter@ofsheea.ca. 

Over the summer and fall of 2016, OFSHEEA undertook a large-scale writing project, funded by the Ministry of Education, to update Family Studies-focused financial literacy resources.  These new resources align with the 2013 curriculum expectations revisions.  These new resources embed a financial literacy focus into 7 select courses offered in the Family Studies discipline:


In addition to the series of guides above, the following guides by thesimpledollar.com are designed to provide students and parents with knowledge and tools necessary for instilling positive credit awareness and responsible financial habits.  These guides are a perfect companion piece to the newly released financial literacy resources.

You can see the guides here:


ALL OF THE ABOVE RESOURCES ARE AVAILABLE FOR FREE (no membership is required to access them).  Resources in each course include an instructional organizer, lesson plans, student handouts, teacher answer keys, powerpoint presentations, and if applicable, assessment and evaluation tools.  Lesson plans only are also available in French.  Click on the links above to access the resources.

All financial literacy resources are available for download and printable via livebinders.com.
