Welcome back!

We hope you have all been enjoying a safe and fun summer! With the first day of school just over a week away, we know that many of you are well under way in getting ready for the 2016-2017 school year. We are excited to start another terrific year and look forward to supporting you and your students in being engaged and taking advantage of all the experiences that lie ahead for this school year! Take a look below at some of our exciting new offerings for the fall. 
Yours in inquiry,
Learning for a Sustainable Future
We are excited to announce our redesigned Resources for Rethinking (R4R) website. Our goal is to provide you with a great user-experience. You can now access the full resource review (incl. Sustainability Education Principles and Pedagogical Approaches) in our new one-stop-shop review pages. The site's redesign is now mobile friendly so feel free to visit our site on your phone and tablet! Explore the site to see our fresh new colours, design changes and access some of our new resources for this year!

LSF is offering free R4R demonstration workshops and webinars this fall. These workshops provide teachers with tips on accessing the best teacher-reviewed, curriculum-matched sustainability resources and applying R4R programs in the classroom. Webinars and workshops in Ontario are being offered through the generous support of the Ontario Teachers' Insurance Plan. Request a 20-minute workshop or webinar today!

Interested in creating learning experiences that put students in the driver's seat to propel their own learning? Learn how to deepen your understanding and practice of inquiry-based teaching and learning at one of our upcoming Inquiry Institutes! 

Watch for upcoming workshops that will be implemented throughout the school year - keep connected with us to receive dates and locations near you.
