FALL CONFERENCE 2016 - PRESENTER PROPOSALS WELCOME!
This year's OFSHEEA Fall Conference planning is well underway! We invite interested parties to submit a presentation proposal by clicking on the green "Propose" button on the right hand side of the website under "Upcoming Conferences".
This year's conference will be held Saturday, October 22, 2016 at Meadowvale Secondary School in Mississauga, ON.
This week's e-blast is centered around helping university and college-bound students in researching post-secondary school options as they dive into learning about the challenges that adolescents and young adults face in their journey of life after high school. I used this for my HHS4U class this past semester, and the students found it extremely helpful in helping them put their new reality into perspective. Prior to this assignment, it is suggested to explore how the importance of education has changed over time for both males and females, and explore predictions into what it might translate into the future.
Here is a culminating activity for HFA4U. The project involves research, designing a food product and producing the product. It is also current because it is a co-operative learning activity and can be easily differentiated based on interest, learning preference and style.
Being able to log in does not mean your membership is up-to-date. The membership year runs from September 1 - August 31. To access members only resources, a current membership is required. Current members have had to renew their membership on or after September 1, 2015.
