Resource of the Month Archive — 2014

The OSSTF/FEESO Educational Services Committee provides a monthly resource that members may find useful in their classrooms, worksites or personal lives.

The resource is often linked to a particular date of interest within that month, for example Persons Day in October, Black History Month or National Aboriginal Day in June.  The Resource of the Month may be a link to a particular website, a book, a journal or research report. The resource often provides content that is classroom-friendly including lesson plans and curriculum support.
