Far Away But Close To Home - Stories (2001)

Local People Remember War And Peace

This is a series of readers for adult literacy tutors and learners. It is a collection of the experiences of veterans, war brides and civilians who lived through the Second World War, and the years that followed. The people are originally from, or are living in the Eastern Shore and Musquodoboit Valley area of Nova Scotia. Their stories have been adapted for the purposes of these publications. The materials are interesting and relevant for adults. Colour has been used throughout, and some humour.
The stories are in plain language and intended for Level 1 and 2 learners. An illustrated glossary is provided in a side bar to the text. Each Reader has a Workbook associated with it. The exercises are especially designed to test comprehension. They include some math and work with maps. The series is available online in the NALD Literacy Collection.
