A novel take on novel studies

(and more!)

A blend of classic literature, contemporary favorites, and pop culture, these units of study combine student interest with the Alberta curriculum to provide a unique, engaging approach to learning!



  Research shows that students are more successful when they are interested and invested in the work they are doing, something I have witnessed first-hand. Over the past 10 years, I have worked with my students to create exciting, interesting assignments that bring together their interests and the Alberta Program of Studies. These assignments bridge subjects, allowing students to do more in-depth, meaningful projects, and to learn in an integrated fashion, more like real-life situations.

Now, I want to bring those same opportunities to everyone. Each of the units of study you find here has been created to help students develop a wide variety of necessary skills, including critical thinking, effective communication, and creativity.
