FACULTY OF EDUCATION STUDENTS CONTRIBUTE TO CURRICULUM SUPPORT

A collection of learning activities developed by UPEI pre-service teachers, Aleah Palmer and Bethany Ellis during a Spring 2014 alternative practicum placement have been approved for use by teachers in Kindergarten to Grade 3 classrooms within the English Language School Board of Prince Edward Island.  These activities and resources support human rights education connected with several curricular areas within those grades.  The Faculty of Education is proud of our students’ work in this innovative project, and the concrete contribution it has made to the educational program for teachers on PEI by our students.
