Description

The books in the best-selling Dear Canada series of historical fiction diaries provide a springboard for exploring different periods in Canadian history. This accessible and informative teaching guide uses the first four titles: Orphan at My Door, A Prairie as Wide as the Sea, Footsteps in the Snow, and With Nothing But Our Courage to develop children's understanding of historical concepts and build important Social Studies and Language Arts skills.

Teaching with Dear Canada begins with an overview of teaching social studies through historical fiction, then provides a summary for each book, themes for classroom discussion, cross-curricular activities, ready-to-use reproducibles and more. Bibliographies for each book offer material for further study and research. This guide is a must-have for every classroom and library.
