Resources for Teachers


The sections below contain series of unit plans and lesson plans centered around different themes essential to equity in the classroom.  The unit plans and lesson plans below were created by the 2008-2009 Inner City Option teacher candidates at OISE.  We'd like to thank CUS Associates and Inner City Option Coordinators Beverly Caswell and Darlene Avis-Pottinger for their leadership in supporting our teacher candidates in this work.

We hope that these teacher resources are only the beginning in developing equitable and culturally relevant and responsive curricula, and we invite you to share your educational resources with us.
