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!
bullying 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!
