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. 

OFSHEEA, in partnership with the Aga Khan Museum and the Ministry of Ontario, is proud to release NEW resources and learning activities for teachers, created with the goal of building a foundational knowledge of the Muslim world by encouraging our students to make connections to their own personal cultures with familial faith journeys.  These resources encourage students to investigate the experiences we all share as humans through purposeful and engaging interactions with others outside of their cultural groups. The thinking, inquiry, and application based units of study will encourage all learners to look beyond differences and to embrace the experiential similarities of people they meet on a daily basis.  


These new resources align with the 2013 curriculum expectations for the following five Family Studies and Social Science courses:

HRT3M - World Religions


HSP3U/C – Introduction to Anthropology, Sociology, and Psychology


HNC3C – Understanding Fashion


HFC3M/E – Food and Culture


HHS4U/C – Families in Canada
