This week Ontario's Premiere Doug Ford announced that when students return to school in September, they will be taught the old sex-education curriculum rather then the modernized one introduced by Kathleen Wynne's Liberal Party in 2015. This decision by Doug Ford, Education Minister Lisa Thompson and the newly elected Progressive Conservative majority government is nothing short of a disgrace. The curriculum that our so-called "leaders" are reverting back to is from 1998. Which means that not only will Ontario students no longer be taught about sam-sex relationship, there will be no discussion about consent, gender identity, gender-based violence, sexual harassment, homophobia, sexting, cyberbullying and online predators. Putting aside my personal sadness that one day a future child of mine could be sitting in a classroom and wonder why his parent's relationship isn't talked about publicly, I am far more disturbed by the child who will grow up not being taught about the many different colours across the LGBTQ+ spectrum. #EDUCATIONMATTERS. Hate, violence, ignorance and discrimination only flourish where inclusivity and differences are ignored and pushed to the shadows. Ontario students and families deserve better. . . . . . #dougford #LisaThompson #regression #middleages #sexed #education #ignorance #pcparty #ontariopoli #canada #yourstodiscover #ontario #fordnation #pc #shameful #teachscience #onpoli #supportsexed #onsexed #madasf #sexed #sexeducation #sexedmatters #family #children #kidsmatter #markitproud #lgbtq #loveislove #lovewins

It’s criminal to deprive our children of education and knowledge. It’s even more criminal doing it while knowing that their ignorance could easily turn to hate as they grow. Here are some of the topics that our kids will no longer learn about: - Consent - Online bullying and sexting - Same-sex marriage - Gender identity - Masturbation #shameful #teachscience #onpoli #supportsexed #onsexed #madasf #sexed #sexeducation #sexedmatters #dougford #family #children #kidsmatter

Help! I’m in need of a new holiday read! Do you have any suggestions? Here are two books that I think have really improved my teaching: #teachlikeachampion by #douglemov @uncommonschools and #engaginglearners by #andygriffiths and #markburns. They both are full of ready to go ideas and both now have lots of pages folded over so I can seek inspiration super quickly! #teachingmadeeasy #teachingmadefun

This will forever be one of my favourite activities - Oreo moon phases 🌝 #science #teachscience #foodscience #middleschool #middleschoolteacher #scienceexperiment #letthemlearn

There is a real buzz around the #worldcup⁠ ⁠ in our school at the moment so what better way to engage than by bringing their interests into the classroom! Why not theme a quiz- every question is worth a penalty- get the question right your team scores-wrong the goalkeeper has saved it! If you can take your class outside and they can take the penalties for bonus points? How about making a model of the World Cup and awarding it to your ‘man of the match’? You could create little card shirts of the players and the pupils could earn tokens to buy them! Great for #maths #mathsteacher #sportsscience #sport #scienceexperiment #teacherspayteachers

Does foot size affect how far you can kick a ball? Does the size of ball have any affect on the game? Are people with longer legs better at football? How about a penalty shoot out- does length of run up matter? Could you link it to distance-speed-time? #scienceexperiment #footballscominghome #itscominghome #comeonengland #engaginglearners

This is how I started my revision lesson. A #settler is my secret #teachingtool the students walk in, it’s on the board and instantly know what they have to do! This one involved students-working in pairs-making lists of any keywords from the topic we had been studying. I had hidden the words I wanted the group to remember underneath the yellow boxes on the right and if they matched my words they earned points for their team! #competition 👩🏻‍🏫 🔬 👩🏻‍🏫 🔬 👩🏻‍🏫 #science #sciences #teachersofinstagram #iteach #iteachtoo #iteachscience #teacherspayteachers #homeschool #homeschooling #teachscience #teachscienceuk #teachingideas #lessonideas #teaching #teacherlife #teachingresources #teachersfollowteachers #biology #chemistry #physics #teachingresources #sciencelesson #nqt #rqt #funscience #teachersuk #keywords

Sometimes it’s the littlest things that can make you happy. Spending time with friends and family or treating yourself to a Target trip. It’s important to take the time to sit back and relax! 🙃

Another way to make revision easy- I love to print ‘revision stop’ signs and place them around my room with different tasks on! I differentiate the tasks using bronze (easy), silver and gold. Simple #revision for any subject or topic! #sciencerevision #differentiation #afl #assessment

One of my favourite revision games ‘If this is the answer-what is the question?’ Reverse learning! It’s also great for checking knowledge at the start of a lesson and showing #progress at the end! (...If the questions have become more scientific 😬) 👩🏻‍🏫 🔬 👩🏻‍🏫 🔬 👩🏻‍🏫 #science #sciences #teachersofinstagram #iteach #iteachtoo #iteachscience #teacherspayteachers #homeschool #homeschooling #teachscience #teachscienceuk #teachingideas #lessonideas #teaching #teacherlife #teachingresources #teachersfollowteachers #biology #chemistry #physics #teachingresources #sciencelesson #scienceteacher #teachersofinsta #teachersofthegram #teachersofig

Science bingo! A getting to know you version for new classes! Students are not allowed to answer themselves they must ask others in their class and fill out the sheet with no duplicate names-a great opportunity to speak to new people! The answers can be written below so it is also an afl tool! I have changed the questions to make versions for each topic too which makes it super easy to spot common misconceptions, strengths and weaknesses! 🔬 🔬 #teachersofinstagram #teacher #teach #teachscience #teachscienceuk #teacherlife #teachers #teaching #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofthegram #teachersofig #science #sciences #biology #physics #chemistry #scienceteacher #sciencelesson #teachingresources #homeschool #homeschooling
