Atlantic Canada In The Global Community
This is an innovative Grade 9 Social Studies textbook and teacher’s resource created to meet the needs of the Atlantic Provinces Education Foundation’s common core curriculum.
Recognizing the increasing interdependence of each Atlantic province within both the regional and the global community, the book focuses on five broad interrelated themes: physical setting; culture; economics; technology and interdependence. Students are engaged in a set of ordered and required processes and actions to ensure they acquire the understandings related to these themes.
State-of-the-art teaching strategies are incorporated to elicit an active response from students and apply the knowledge they have learned to the real world of Atlantic Canada. Values such as responsibility and tolerance are emphasized as well as respect for the traditions, institutions, and the rich cultural heritage of the region.
