Canada's Aboriginal People (2013)

This e-book is part of a series called Best of the Reader, which consists of stories from The Westcoast Reader, a newspaper for adults trying to improve their English reading skills. It is a revised version of a book originally published in 2010, and contains new data from the 2011 Canadian census.

Each story is accompanied by exercises to help learners improve both their reading skills and their grasp of English. The material can be used by a learner on his own or by a teacher in a classroom.

The focus of this book is Canada’s Aboriginal peoples. Some of the stories focus on well-known people, like singer Susan Aglukark and hockey player Jonathan Cheechoo, while another features a father who has gone back to school so he can read to his young children. Other stories describe First Nations legends.

The reading level of each story is indicated by an icon showing one, two or three books.

Books in the Best of the Reader series are published on Creative Commons, a non-profit organization devoted to expanding the range of creative works available to share legally. To learn more about Best of The Reader, please click here:
