Here's a toolkit for using Canada Reads in your classroom
Calling all secondary school teachers! Do you love Canada Reads and wish you could share your passion with students? You can now find Canada Reads content on Curio.ca, CBC's streaming service designed with Canada's educational community in mind.
The Canada Reads collection on Curio.ca includes teacher guides for all five of this year's contenders, videos featuring this year's shortlisted authors, and discussion questions and suggested activities for how to activate Canada Reads in any secondary school classroom.
