French-language resource

ISBN : 978-1-897328-04-0 


  • Ensemble of 22 mini-magazines, of which 2 are special editions featuring Véronic Dicaire and brothers Jonathan & David Toews.

    Youth profiles and the themes featured in these are at the heart of Kanata : je suis ici.

    Each mini-mag features:

    • the introduction of a young person and the basic vocabulary of the mini-mag through a photo-story
    • the young author presenting a family activity which is important to him/her
    • an adult from the family making connections between the  present, the past and the future
    • a more complex informative text providing other pertinent info related to this activity 

    Different reading levels

    Each mini-mag proposes texts with increasing levels of difficulty. In this way, students are offered the support needed to progressively improve their language proficiency. The kit allows the teacher to initiate all students in the class to the same content while taking into consideration each pupil's particular abilities. 

    • Specialized language  
    • Different types of writing are found in the mini-mag: narrative, informative, playful, poetic.

    Each mini-mag presents in its own way a specialized language, because although it deals with a subject that interests the young author and his/her family, it may be completely new to the reader. Narrative and informative texts acquaint the reader with specialized terms in an accessible context within these new topics.
