Reading and Listening Resources: Preview Available Now
There may be no finer Canadian to profile for the “Famous Canadians” units than John McCrae, the soldier poet who penned the infamous “In Flanders Fields,” a poem of international renown. McCrae died at a rather young age, 42, but accomplished a great deal in his time on earth.
In ESL classrooms I’ve used a few John McCrae resources, including a listening assignment I created for EAP English students. This preview of materials includes the listening resource, along with a reading. Famous Canadians, typically consists of a 3-4-page PDF with a reading, comprehension questions and links to relevant media.
Feedback Request – Call for Contributions
I am very happy to share a preview of this resource. If you’d like to see the PDFs in advance of their October release, I ask that you send me a note at [email protected]. I’m looking for teachers and educators to review the materials and provide feedback. In return for your time, you’ll guarantee yourself access to the final drafts and complete download package, which will include PDFs for teacher and student, and media like MP3s.
Note: If you are reading this post after our free preview in 2017, you may be asked for a nominal fee to access materials like Famous Canadians: John McCrae. The unit will also be available in 2018 as part of the first Ancestry Project digital book.
