Pearson Adult Learning Centre HomePearson Adult Learning Centre: The Weekly Quiz



Learning about Canada
by Cheryl

Every year around July 1st, Canada Day, the news is filled with discussions about Canada, its history, and citizenship.  The newspapers publish questions from the test and ask all Canadians if they know the answers. Many people have difficulty answering them. However, people take the citizenship test twelve months of the year, so perhaps you should brush up on your Canadian facts.

Start by learning the capitals of Canada’s provinces. Use this quiz to test yourself.

Students who have taken my Civic Studies 11 class or Social Studies 10 classes often find these courses help prepare them for their Canadian Citizenship Test. Other students not in my social studies classes frequently ask me for resources to help them study for their citizenship test. Here are a few resources to help students prepare for the Canadian Citizenship Test.
This resource includes a downloadable booklet called A Look at Canada as well as study questions and general information about the test. Canadian Information 

The Richmond Library supports a practice test

Also, if you are interested in taking Civic Studies 11 it will be offered this fall on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. This course is a study of government, political decision-making, and what it means to be an informed Canadian citizen. A responsible informed citizen can then participate in local, national, and global contexts. The goal of this course is to create informed, active, and global citizens.

 I look forward to seeing all our Pearson Adult Learning Centre students in September.
