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.
