Call for Writers—Secondary resource on Social Emotional Learning for Grade 10 Careers Studies

OSSTF/FEESO is collaborating with School Mental Health ASSIST to create an eight module resource for secondary teachers teaching the Grade 10 Careers Studies course (GLC 2O). This resource will provide evidence-based research on skills for transitions from secondary school, employability, and life-long resiliency.

We are looking for up to EIGHT teachers/occasional teachers and up to TWO PSSP members from around the province interested in being part of the writing team for this resource. The team will also include representatives from School Mental Health ASSIST. The OSSTF/FEESO teachers/occasional teachers would need to be currently teaching or have taught the Grade 10 Careers Studies course within the last five (5) years. PSSP members must be a psychologist, social worker, CYW/CYC and be working in secondary schools.

Applicants should have:

  • strong communication skills
  • demonstrated knowledge in social emotional learning
  • evidence of work related to student mental health and resiliency

In addition, teacher/occasional teacher applicants need to have experience with curriculum writing, lesson planning, and/or resource development.

Successful applicants must be able to attend meetings at the OSSTF/FEESO Provincial Office in Toronto on April 15-16, 2019 and May 6-7, 2019, with two additional dates as necessary prior to the full release of the resource. All costs related to time-release, travel, and meals will be covered by OSSTF/FEESO Provincial Office. Hotel accommodations will be covered for those who qualify.

The deadline for application is March 8, 2019 at 4:00 p.m.
