CHRISTOPHER DINSDALE SCHOOL VISIT
Christopher Dinsdale was at Sharon P.S. to enhance their literature-based unit on First Nation history. The Grade 6 and M.I.D. students used Christopher Dinsdale's first novel, Broken Circle, to investigate first contact between European and First Nation cultures. After finishing the novel, the students then took a field trip to Ste. Marie among the Hurons to further investigate its significant moment in Ontario history. Christopher was pleased to sit down with the students and discuss how he went about creating the storyline for Broken Circle. It was an enjoyable morning for all. Christopher was very impressed with the novel-based artwork and writing that covered most of the classroom. Well done, Sharon P.
