Canada's present role in the new world order and its trade and economic dimensions are clarified in this book. Furthermore, the book explains the intricacies of Canada's history and multicultural heritage. The chapters focus on the modes of social studies instruction, resources for learning and teaching, the use of films and videos, and new technologies for the classroom. A student activities section provides a springboard for teachers interested in sharing their knowledge of Canada with students. Following a foreword (Michael S. Bittner) and an introduction (Jeanne Kissner; Marion Salinger), chapters in the book are: (1) "An Introduction to the History of Canada" (Victor Howard); (2) "Geography of Canada" (Michael J. Broadway); (3) "Canadian Government and Politics" (George Sherman); (4) "Canada and the World" (Donald K. Alper; Matthew Sparke); (5) "The Canadian Economy" (Anthony Cicerone; Mark J. Kasoff); (6) "Canadian Culture in the Late 1990s" (William Metcalfe); (7) "Quebec, Past and Present" (Richard Beach); (8) "Canada within the Social Studies" (William W.
