In 1988 the Department of Education for the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador, with the publication of Programs of Studies, announced a major shift in its approach to education in order to prepare its students for the challenges they will meet in the 21st century. It encouraged its educators to teach their students the skills that would enable them to readily access information when needed. This meant that the educators themselves had to apply a new method of teaching their students. This method, the resource-based method, meant that a new orientation from the traditional approach to teaching and learning had to be learned and experienced by all concerned. -- Because of the Department of Education's policy statement, the faculty of Mary Queen of Peace School in St. John's undertook to prepare and implement a resource-based teaching/learning experience so everyone involved in the process could profit and grow from it. This study reports on the process involved in developing and implementing a resource-based unit of study for the grade nine level.
