Teaching Resource

The Our Land and People Teaching Resource provides practical support for the Student Resource, Activity Card Package, and Audio CD. The Teaching Resource contains thorough lesson plans, strategies for lesson modification, and Blackline Masters for activities, maps, and assessment. Curriculum outcomes are identified for every chapter and for each of the lessons within the Student Resource. The Teaching Resource includes classroom-embedded strategies based on the latest research into student engagement, literacy and inquiry skills building, and critical thinking. The Teaching Resource is also available in CD Rom and online.
