2014 OAGEE CWS Implementation Resources

Written by Shawn Hughes on . Posted in Resources & Curriculum

O.A.G.E.E. has been working hard to produce & compile Geography lessons, posters and professional development opportunities to assist you with the implementation of Grades 7 & 8 Geography and Grade 9 Issues in Canadian Geography.  Thank you to our wonderful Regional Councillors that quickly submitted resources that teams from their Boards have been working on. Some of these resources are “works in progress”, however, we are certain that they will prove to be very helpful. Click here to view OAGEE’s 2014 Canadian and World Studies Implementation Resources
















O.A.G.E.E. has developed classroom ready resources for each of the Concepts of Geographic Thinking for Grade 7 – 9. According to our recently revised curriculum document, “The four concepts of geographic thinking – spatial significance, patterns and trends, interrelationships, and geographic perspective – underpin all thinking and learning in Geography. In Grades 7 and 8, at least one concept of geographic thinking is identified as the focus for each overall expectation.” Lessons based on these Concepts of Geographic Thinking are in the final revision process and will be available soon.
