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:
- HNL2O – Grade 10 Clothing
- HNC3C – Understanding Fashion
- HCF3M – Food and Culture
- HNB4M – The World of Fashion
- HFL4E – Food and Healthy Living
- HHS4C – Families in Canada (College)
- HIP4O – Personal Life Management
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.
