***********Teacher Feedback******************

1. “I loved the preview and was hopeful that the resource would be worth the price. It is far more than I usually spend, but I am so glad that I bought both grade 7 and 8 versions of the resource. My students are going to love how interactive and thoughtful each lesson is. I like that it gets students thinking right from the start. They will not be passive in their learning of Canadian history. Thank you for the amazing resource!”

2. “I love the resources and use them extensively in my grade 7 and 8 classes. I have purchased them in French and English (I teach in French, but a few students do the program in English).They were by far the best investment I have made so far this year. I highly recommend this.”

3. “I am so happy to have purchased this bundle! I will be coming off of maternity leave in the fall and have been feeling a bit overwhelmed with all of the work that I needed to do. Moreover, I found the new HIST documents a bit overwhelming as I had never seen them before. I now feel very prepared for social studies!”

4. “Your lessons/bundles are SO worth the money!! They have been so useful for me as I try and manage time in a split class (7/8). THANK YOU!! I will continue to recommend your products to all of my fellow educators. You’ve saved me even more time by making the material digitally available!! I am now able to save time and paper by having my students access the resources through our (password protected) site. Cannot thank you enough!”

5. “Worth…..Every…..Penny! I can not say enough about this resource. If you are on the fence, just buy it…you won’t be sorry.”

6. “Big fan of this seller! I purchased the Geography bundle as well. Amazing to see Canadian content which is very difficult to find. I was hesitant at first to purchase this unit due to the cost; however, I am more than happy I decided to purchase this product. First off, the resource is well organized and provides lots of detail throughout each lesson. Second, the split grade suggestions are very handy. Third, there are supporting videos, ELL/Resource suggestions and the handy option of downloading the files directly to Google classroom. This unit has saved me hours of time! Thank you so much for creating this time saver and I look forward to using this in the fall.”

7. “Amazing unit! Makes teaching a split so easy!!! Thank you for all the time you put into these units! Keep them coming! I recommend this source to everyone!”
