Since 2003, The Ottawa Senators and Ottawa Senators Foundation have been actively involved with supporting education in our community, and providing valuable curriculum-based lesson plans and resources to teachers. Read to Succeed, Spelling with Sparty, and Shoot for 60 are a few examples of successful initiatives created by the Senators, designed to inspire and motivate students. This year, we have made vast improvements featuring all brand new lesson plans and a new website that will be even more interactive for teachers, parents, and students. The new Sens in School material is more aligned with today's classroom and curriculum, focusing more on critical thinking and modern teaching concepts. All of the lesson plans are fully bilingual and available in both French and English.
Additionally, last season the Ottawa Senators and Ottawa Senators foundation along with the NHL and NHL Players' Association introduced Future Goals to help students build and learn fundamental S.T.E.M. concepts using the fast-paced, exciting game of hockey and the Senators as a learning vehicle. This innovative, digital based module works in any classroom on a computer or tablet. Designed with educational gameplay elements, students must assist the Senators, who have made it to the Stanley Cup final, win four games of the series to bring home the Stanley Cup to Ottawa. The Ottawa Senators and Ottawa Senators Foundation along with the NHL and NHLPA are pleased to offer these two great educational resources for students and teachers free of charge.
