How to use the Study Guide

The Study Guide starts with two writing resources for adult learners.

Copy the writing resources and hand them out. Post them in the classroom. Review the writing process with learners before they begin a writing activity. Encourage learners to use the process as they write.

The Study Guide has four sections — one for each of these stories from the 6th edition of The Northern Edge.

  1. Northern Biographies
  2. Climate Change
  3. Family Literacy
  4. Finding Work

Each section includes the written text for the online story and a list of learning activities. Each learning activity has separate instructor notes and handouts. We use the symbols on the next page to show story text, instructor notes and handouts.
