  • Although I would LOVE to have ipads, unfortunately I am stuck with super slow and faulty netbooks (laptops) and a SMART board. However, I LOVE your lessons and have been using them regularly as a foundation for my class(minus the odd tweak to suit my teaching style and students).
    Thank you for sharing all of your hard work.

    • Thanks for the feedback!

      Glad to know that the resources are being used and appreciate the kind words. I haven’t had a grade 11 workplace class in a few years, so there are updates definitely needed. Hopefully Ill teach another section soon to spend some time improving them.

      Have a great semester and reach out anytime!

    Hello Kyle, I am teaching MEL3E for the first time this coming term and was hoping to use some of your resources in my class. Would you be ok with this? Thanks.

    • Hi Anna! Go right ahead! That’s why they’re up here. If you do any tweaking and want to share back, that’d be great – I could add it to the resource page. Good luck!

  • Rubiga Thanganathan

    Isi it possible to have the password in order to access the textbook?

    • Unfortunately, I can’t share the password due to copyright law 🙁

  • Michael Levesque

    Hi Kyle, I really like the look of your resources and was wondering if it would be possible to get a copy of the original smartboard files? At the moment I’m using your pdf’s as the source and more or less recreating the files.
    Thank You

    • Hi Michael. It has been a while since I taught this course so I’ll need to do some digging to see what I can dig up. Keep me honest by dropping me a line via the contact page!
