 Lester B. Pearson School Board, this document has been developed as a teacher resource to support the implementation of the Ethics and Religious Culture Curriculum. "One of our primary goals was to provide teachers with a planning resource that is directly linked to a number of picture books. For each of the picture books you will find the bibliographic reference, as well as, the curriculum competencies and key features."

sCool Videos tagged for ERC!
Just posted on the s'Cool site section at LEARN, these short "features" have been organized in one location for use with the Ethics and Religious Education program.
An ideal way to motivate students, these features were produced for the s'Cool television programme in 2008-2009, but they were researched and written by students themselves, and they reflect the students’ preoccupations and unique voices. They can be used in class as conversation starters or hooks, or as media productions to critique and learn from.  Click here to view the videos!

Classroom Conversations !
Teachers express their opinions, discuss their own experiences, share teaching strategies, and learn about the new ERC program and its objectives as they go.
Read about the event.  View the video!






RESOURCE COLLECTIONS


ERC LEARNING AND EVALUATION SITUATIONS 

The Ethics and Religious Culture program is being offered in elementary and secondary level classrooms as of September 2008.  To support teachers in its application, several Learning and Evaluation Situations were written by Anglophone resource people, with the support and expertise of the Ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport (MELS).  Similarly, some French MELS LES have also been translated and are available here.
