Integratables

The following resources, available on the Manitoba Education and Training website, address integratable elements of education in Middle Years programming.

Career Development

Career development is a lifelong process of managing learning, work, leisure, and transitions, in order to become a reliable manager of work and personal life. “Middle Years Career development programs are exceptionally engaging to adolescents, providing them with opportunities to learn about and develop their strengths, interests, abilities, as well as their personal beliefs and values” (Successful Futures for All Students, p. 10).

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)

  • Education for Sustainable Development is one of the priority action areas of Manitoba Education and Training. Teachers are encouraged to incorporate key themes of sustainable development into all areas of the curriculum. Middle Years students are at an age when they are especially interested in many aspects of ESD. Community service learning is one way to connect to ESD and to engage Middle Years learners.
