Roots and Connections Curriculum (2008)

A culturally integrated ESL curriculum for community orientation in Alberta

Roots and Connections is an English as a Second Language (ESL) program aimed mainly at new Canadians who may feel isolated in Alberta’s rural communities.

In this document, the authors provide the curriculum for the program. It is divided into eight units, entitled Getting to Know You; Community; Education; Personal Finance; Health and Wellness; Recreation; Safety; and Shopping. Each unit contains five modules that include suggested activities, helpful hints and core language.

The authors have also included the Canadian Language Benchmarks outcomes for each module.
