The Skateboard Factory: Curriculum by Design--Oasis Skateboard Factory Q&A with Craig Morrison
Pearson, George
Education Canada, v52 n5 2012
Since its opening three years ago, Oasis Skateboard Factory (OSF), founded by teacher Craig Morrison, has attracted considerable media exposure and received a Ken Spencer Award from the CEA for its innovative program. OSF is one of three programs offered by Oasis Alternative Secondary School, one of 22 alternative secondary schools of the Toronto District School Board (TDSB). Students design, build and market skateboards, along with paraphernalia for the skateboard culture, and earn academic credit. Students may enroll for as many as three semesters. Students who were disengaged from their previous schools re-engage with their OSF experience. Nearly all OSF students graduate from high school.
