Where the Rivers Meet - Teachers Guide

Written by: Don Sawyer
ISBN: 978-0-921827-06-1
Grades 8-12

Where the Rivers Meet follows high school student Nancy Antoine, a young Shuswap woman, who must find her own way to stand against tragedy and small-mindedness in a small British Columbia town divided between Aboriginals and non-Aboriginals.In the process, she challenges the very educational system and sounds a ringing, positive note.

The 48-page Teacher’s Guide was conceived and written by Sawyer. The topics range from causes of racism and prejudice to the differences between traditional Aboriginal education and modern mainstream schooling. The lively, engaging exercises include learning how to conduct an interview and write a media report.

In support of those goals, the author makes himself available for video conferencing with schools via Skype. He may be reached via e-mail at
