Gateway to CanadaBook - 1997
Gateway to Canada is a reader for young adults and adults focusing exclusively on Canada - our history, geography, economy, political system, society, and rich diversity of cultures. Students read about great moments in our history, explore Canada's diverse regions, become familiar with the political system and economy, recognize significant achievements of Canadians, explore our rich cultural diversity, and discuss issues facing Canada today and in the future. New Canadiansas well as people abroad who are interested in coming to Canada will find much of value in this book. Contributions from leading Canadians in politics, the arts, and other aspects of life obtained especially for the book add a personal touch. A wide variety of exercises and communicative activities support the narratives. The final chapter focuses on some of the challenges facing Canada in the future - challenges as varied and intense as Quebec separatism, native land claims, depleted fish stocks, and racism - and should generateexcellent in-class discussion.
