I'm really enjoying your course. History isn't usually my favourite subject but this year it is.
I did three unit quizzes for my Canada studies I got 84%, 91%, and 79%!
My son is really enjoying the course, he says he loves it! I think you did an awesome job!
Canada in the 20th Century uses a wide variety of resources to engage a high schooler's interest. Through living resources, online videos and timelines, Canada: A People's History, and the main text Counterpoints, Donna Ward has done an excellent job compiling this course. The video questions allow recall of pertinent facts used in Canada: A People's History. The essay rubric Mrs. Ward uses is an excellent tool for the students to assess their work. The unit quizzes, tests, and the essay make this a complete high school level course which will prepare the student for higher learning.
As a homeschooled high-schooler, I can say from firsthand experience that Donna Ward's Canada in the 20th Century has greatly deepened my interest in and understanding of the people and events that have shaped our country into what it is today. The interactive online material, DVDs, and other "living resources" have been excellent supplements to this outstanding curriculum! Never has Canadian history seemed so intriguing and RELEVANT! Thank you, Donna Ward!
