  1. Natalie

    As a homeschooled high-schooler, I can say from firsthand experience that Donna Ward’s Canada in the 20th Century has greatly deepened my interest in and understanding of the people and events that have shaped our country into what it is today. The interactive online material, DVDs, and other “living resources” have been excellent supplements to this outstanding curriculum! Never has Canadian history seemed so intriguing and RELEVANT! Thank you, Donna Ward!

  2. Krista

    Canada in the 20th Century uses a wide variety of resources to engage a high schooler’s interest. Through living resources, online videos and timelines, Canada: A People’s History, and the main text Counterpoints, Donna Ward has done an excellent job compiling this course. The video questions allow recall of pertinent facts used in Canada: A People’s History. The essay rubric Mrs. Ward uses is an excellent tool for the students to assess their work. The unit quizzes, tests, and the essay make this a complete high school level course which will prepare the student for higher learning.

  4. Brandon

  5. Megan

    I’m really enjoying your course. History isn’t usually my favourite subject but this year it is.

  6. Erna Van Hoffen

    I really appreciate the history course. It gives me an indepth look at Canadian History and Culture! I enjoy the videos and resources and they help me really understand the content. I highly recommend this! Especially for people in highschool. The course has a lot to it and takes a lot of time but it is really interesting!

  7. Joanne

    This course has given our son an absolute love for learning about the world wars (he’s watching a video right now on the wars – just for something to do!) Thanks for that!

    The “Canada in the 20th Century” curriculum gave my students a dynamic and inspiring path to complete BC Gr. 10 Socials. Other online courses were dull and relied heavily on report writing. This course has carefully curated resources developed into a brood learning environment. Creative and engaging project suggestions adequately meet learning goals. My students finished with a continuing curiosity about history. I have recommended this product countless times for families looking for captivating and flexible learning platform. I’m excited to use Northwoods Press “Canada in the 20th Century” in it’s updated form for my next student!
