“We have purchased two class sets of the Civics textbooks, and I am very happy to report that they have proven to be an excellent resource. The text conforms perfectly with the revised curriculum. It is written in a manner that is appropriate for open classes where the reading level varies considerably. The issues discussed in the case studies are up to date and very relevant to the course. The materials in the Teacher’s Guide are excellent, and will enable non-specialist teachers to deliver the course with confidence and authority. I would highly recommend the Emond Montgomery Civics books to anyone who is looking to purchase textbooks for the CHV 2O Civics Course.”

“Several students have commented on Canadian Civics being easy to use and understand, and they enjoy how up to date the material is (issues directly relevant to today).”

“We are in the process of ordering new texts and have decided to order yours. While we have not yet used it in the classroom, my colleagues in Civics seemed to like the layout of the sample copies we received. The feature of the book that I am particularly interested in is the Literacy Coach, since the current round of textbook funding in our board prioritizes the development of literacy skills as the main criteria for selection of new resources.”

— Rob Pecora, Northern Collegiate,
Lambton Kent Distirct School Board

“Finally I have found an easy-to-use teacher- and student-friendly civics textbook. Students and I have found Canadian Civics to be engaging and relevant. Students actually have fun working with your textbook. The text is well organized with thought provoking and discussion questions along the way that challenge the student’s ability to think critically. The reading level is appropriate, the visual to text ratio is very good and literacy skills are embedded throughout the chapters. The teacher’s resource is just as valuable providing easy to use activity sheets and rubrics. This book really does “connect students to their community, their country and the world.” But the proof is in the pudding. Not only have pass rates increased but so too have the marks. Well done!!”

— Michael Paterna, St. Joseph Morrow Park High School,
Toronto Catholic District School Board

Canadian Civics is a student-friendly text with clean lines and a balanced approach for a half-credit course. The Face Off sections for each chapter provide students with a base for investigations of relevant issues. The Civic Star sections offer opportunities for students to get acquainted with public individuals and the idea of participation in public affairs.”
