Canadian History by Donna Ward
Donna Ward is a Christian and some material has Christian content. Resources are reviewed from a Christian/family values perspective. However, being brief or resource based, and reaching the small but very broad Canadian market, Christian content is not an overriding factor of the curriculum. Example – Canada’s Natives Long Ago contains a lesson on Native religion and compares it with Christianity and Hinduism. Resources suggested include out-of-print biographies which include conversion to Christianity. Living books are story style written by someone passionate about the subject. They draw you in, engage emotions & make the subject come alive so it’s easy to remember the events. We offer you the best in living books with curriculum guides to pull the groupings into an easy plan.
