In the Accreditation Resource Guide, (PDF version, 290 Ko) published by the Ontario Teacher College, authors encourage future teachers to become familiar with information literacy as it is important to share this knowledge with their students. (Ontario Teacher College, Accreditation Resource Guide, Toronto Ontario, 2014, p. 8).
The collection of the Faculty of Education Resource Centre (FERC) supports the Teacher Education programs. It is intended for classroom use during the academic year, and in the summer months by teachers in the additional qualifications programs. The Centre provides faculty with the instructional material necessary to support programs offered at the Faculty in both French and English.
The bilingual collection is developed to support the Ontario's K-12 curriculum guidelines and includes textbooks, curriculum guides, professional literature, non-print material such as audio-visual material, kits and manipulatives, periodicals and reference works. The Centre also houses a comprehensive children's collection of fiction and non-fiction material.
To keep abreast of new research in early childhood development, please have a look at the Centre of Excellence for Early childhood development (CEECD). This research centre brings many scholars together, from many universities.
You will find a wealth of resources for teaching in the new catalogue of the Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario. The Faculty of Education Resource Centre (FERC) holds most of them and some are free to download.
