New Social Studies/Geography/History
The Ministry of Education in Ontario will soon be releasing the new Social Studies/Geography/History curriculum document. Byron Stevenson (OESSTA) explains that the document will explicitly promote the following conceptual frames: significance, continuity and change, perspective, patterns and trends, interrelationships, cause and consequence. The curriculum will focus on the Social Studies inquiry model. There will be a shift from content only to disciplinary thinking. You can find the latest OESSTA newsletter on www.inquiry-based.com under the blog tab.
