Canadian-American Center

New Canada Unit compiled for Massachusetts Grade 4 teachers

Betsy Arntzen, director of the Canadian-American Center’s Office of K-12 Canadian Studies outreach, has compiled a comprehensive Canada Unit for Massachusetts Grade 4 teachers, covering all the elements in the MA Frameworks. Based on high-level work created by teachers who completed previous professional development programming offered by the Canadian-American Center, she created a best-practices compilation for teachers to use in a 3-week unit expandable to 3-month unit.

Ms. Arntzen presented the unit at an afterschool workshop hosted by EDCO Collaborative in Waltham, MA, April 2, 2012.  Participants, who were Grade 4 teachers from six towns, participated by engaging in abbreviated versions of the lessons.  They received the complete unit on a CD in addition to other handouts which included maps of Canada.
