CURRICULUM & POSTER

New ETFO resource for Black History Month, and beyond


In time for February's Black History Month, ETFO has released a new Black Canadian  Curriculum resource and poster to encourage elementary teachers to be more inclusive of Black studies in classrooms throughout the year.

The 365 ETFO Black Canadian Curriculum offers ready-made lesson plans to explore Black history, culture, identity and current day realities of racism and discrimination with students. It will assist teachers in integrating Black studies into the Ontario curriculum within language arts, science, social studies, history, geography, music, drama and physical education.

Stop the Hate - Day of Pink

Day of Pinkis the day to take action on Bullying, Homophobia and Transphobia; and began in Nova Scotia in 2007 when two Grade 12 students saw a Grade 9 student who wearing a pink shirt being bullied on the first day of school. The two Grade 12 students, David Shepherd and Travis Price, bought and distributed 50 pink shirts and encouraged peers to arrive to school wearing pink.

This year, April 11 is the Day of Pink. Visit the our website to view ETFO's Day of Pink flyer, t-shirt order form and resources. For more information, contact Adam Peer: apeer@etfo.org.
