Learning Resources

Sigmund Brouwer - Canadian Author 

Through our Writer In Residence program with Sigmund Brouwer — the author of over 100 books — we are pleased to make his Academy of Writers curriculum available to all our parents within the Rainy River District School Board. These are highly engaging video lessons that are each about ten minutes long, with suggested followup activities. If you’d like to participate in the lessons with your child, you are welcome to download these three pdfs which have more information. The first lesson will be available on-line on Monday, March 23. New lessons will be released on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of each week.
