More Northern Writes Study Guide (2008)

From 1992 – 2002, the NWT Literacy Council hosted a northern writing contest called the Northern Writes Writing Contest. This study guide offers learning activities for four stories from the contest. The guide starts with two writing resources for adult learners: writing skills (for lower literacy learners) and the writing process guide. The guide is then divided into four sections, one for each of the stories. 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.

For each story, the first five learning activities focus on vocabulary, language skills, questions, reading and comprehension and writing skills. Three of the stories start with a pre-reading activity. Other learning activities explore different issues related to the story’s topic. There is a list of a few key resources at the end of each section
