Common Threads VI: An uncommon experience

The Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF/FEESO) has announced the launch of its sixth Common Threads project: The Sustainable Society. An excerpt from the announcement:

This past summer the project team of six Ontario secondary educators traveled to two uniquely different countries to investigate the interconnected relationships between people, planet, and profit. They met with numerous diverse stakeholders, immersed themselves in local culture, and had many unforgettable experiences.

Common Threads is OSSTF/FEESO’s international solidarity program which offers members the opportunity to travel abroad and conduct research resulting in the creation of new progressive curriculum on critical issues.

The interdisciplinary Common Threads The Sustainable Society curriculum package will be available to teachers in the 2015–16 school year. In the meantime, you are encouraged to enhance your teaching program with any of our five previous Common Threads curriculum resources, available at:
