- “A wealth of relevant resources for Geographic and Environmental teachers by teachers. Check out the “Best of the Monograph” for a plethora of lesson ideas.” Ling Wong, TDSB
- “As a non Geographer suddenly teaching Canadian and World Studies courses, these lessons have been instrumental for using the Concepts of Geographic Thinking through the Inquiry process.The “What’s Where, Why There, Why Care” poster developed by Randy Wilkie helps facilitate a fantastic minds-on activity that prepares students to become fully engaged in each task as they begin questioning and making connections.”
Dave Donald, Thomas A Stewart Secondary School KPRDSB
- During my time as a Lead Teacher at Cobourg West, teachers in our department constantly used The Monograph, which is filled with easily implemented learning activities that are current & relevant. These easily implemented activities allowed teachers with a variety of skills, qualifications, and backgrounds to help students understand the nature of the discipline and its relevance to our everyday lives.
