It will highlight current practices, theories, research, and programs that are in operation in our school divisions and communities.

Rethinking Schools

Rethinking Schools began as a local effort to address problems such as basal readers, standardized testing, and textbook-dominated curriculum. Since its founding, it has grown into a nationally prominent publisher of educational materials, with subscribers in all 50 states, all 10 Canadian provinces, and many other countries. Rethinking Schools is firmly committed to equity and to the vision that public education is central to the creation of a humane, caring, multiracial democracy. While writing for a broad audience, Rethinking Schools emphasizes problems facing urban schools, particularly issues of race.


Deepening Knowledge Project

The Deepening Knowledge Project seeks to infuse Aboriginal peoples' histories, knowledges and pedagogies into all levels of education in Canada. The project is a part of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto, which is located on the territories of Anishinaabe and Onkwehonwe peoples.

On their site you'll find information about the history and traditions of First Nations, Métis, Inuit and Native American cultures, information about the challenges facing Aboriginal communities today, and curricula for incorporating this information into your teaching practice.


Learning for a Sustainable Future

Founded in 1991 by a diverse group of youth, educators, business leaders, government and community members, LSF is a non-profit Canadian organization that was created to integrate sustainability education into Canada’s education system. LSF’s goal is to work together with educators, students, parents, government, community members and business leaders to integrate the concepts and principles of sustainable development into education policy, school curricula, teacher education, and lifelong learning across Canada. They have one specific project called "Protecting our Sacred Water" about aboriginal and water education that you should check out. They also have a Sustainability education program that takes place through hands-on projects that model responsible and active citizenship with respect to water issues called "Project FLOW (For the Love of Water)" (Small funds available for action projects).

With a focus on developing partnerships with rural communities throughout Canada and around the world, we intend to effect change at the municipal, provincial, and federal levels as well as within civil society and industries involved in the protection and production of public water supplies.

They have lesson plans and resources related to various water issues with some specific focus on water testing (kits available for order, online).


Stream of Dreams

Watershed education through community art. Part I covers questions such as: Where is your local stream? Where does the water come from? Where does it go? How do storm drains work? Where does your drinking water come from? What changes in behavior can we all make to protect water and fish habitat? During part II, a mural is created and serves as a reminder of environmental responsibility
