The Canadian Reader
“The Canadian Reader”, written for students in grades 3 to 5, combines Canadian current “events and issues with geography to expand students’ knowledge of Canada while enhancing their ability to read and understand informational text.” Each month The Canadian Reader may include:
- three news stories, written at a level students can understand;
- detailed literacy-based lesson plans, including ready-to-use graphic organizers and criteria for assessment;
- a map assignment featuring a region of Canada highlighted in one of the articles;
- Did You Know? – a non-fiction comic strip featuring background information related to one of the news stories, accompanied by a lesson plan and supporting material.
