How to use the Study Guide

The Study Guide starts with two writing resources for adult learners.

Copy them and hand them out. Post them in the classroom. Review the writing process before learners begin a writing activity and encourage learners to use them.

The Study Guide has 4 sections - one for each of these stories that we chose from the Northern Writes Writing Contest:

  1. A Tundra Spring Day by Susan Webster
  2. Fascinating Myths of the Inuit by Elizabeth Lyall
  3. As Are We All by Chris Gamble
  4. Medivac by Maureen A. Johnston

Each section includes the written text for the story or poem and a list of learning activities. Each learning activity has separate instructor notes and handouts. We use the following symbols to show story text, instructor notes, and handouts.
