As a teacher, you’ll need to develop a clear understanding of how to create a comprehensive math and literacy program with a strong play and inquiry-based approach.

This additional qualification course will provide you with the tools and confidence needed to create that program and plan for the needs of all learners.

In this course, you’ll learn about

  • the role of assessment and documentation in encouraging meaningful play
  • using technology in the classroom and to connect with your community
  • how to properly implement play-based and inquiry-based learning techniques into your own program
  • looking critically at the flow of the day and working with your colleagues
  • the importance of providing hands-on experiences, materials and games, both inside and outdoors

Requirements

Application Requirements

1) OCT Membership showing completion of Part 1

2) CONFIRMATION OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE FORM

Signed by a Supervisory Official* from your Board confirming that you have one year (194 days) of teaching experience since becoming a certified teacher.

*The Ontario College of Teachers defines "Supervisory Official" as the Superintendent or Assistant Superintendent of the school board for a teacher employed by a Board of Education. A principal or headmaster is not recognized in this capacity. For a teacher employed by a private school, the "supervisory official" is the Ministry of Education official (Education Officer) appointed to your school. For overseas experience the appropriate Supervisory Official is the person your Principal reports to.

**Please note that if you have an existing Part 2, Part 3 (Specialist), or Honour Specialist qualification on your OCT record you are not required to submit a form for a Part 2 course. A new form is always required for Part 3 (Specialist).
