Curriculum Advisory - FNMI Perspectives

Created by OFSHEEA as an advisory to the Ontario Social Sciences and Humanities Curriculum, 2013. This document is intended to support Family Studies teachers in incorporating First Nations, Métis, and Inuit perspectives, knowledge, and content while covering the curriculum expectations for their courses. 

Curriculum Advisory - Diet Culture

This series encourages Family Studies teachers to recognise how Diet Culture can easily infiltrate our Foods courses, and provides resources for teachers to examine their own relationship to diet culture with the goal of removing it from our teaching and replacing it with more positive and inclusive approaches to addressing bodies and nutrition.

Funded by the OSSTF, these FREE resources are designed to support ELL students in the HIF1/2O, HFN1/2O, and HNL2O courses.

OFSHEEA-Aga Khan Museum Resources

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.
