Remix: New Canadians is an expository nonfiction text with extensive photographic support. Three chapters explore early immigration, refugees and immigration today. Many specific events are used to illustrate ideas about immigrants, such as Chinese immigrants paying a head tax of $50 in 1885 and over 60,000 refugees from Vietnam coming to Canada from 1979 to 1980. Questions such as “Why do you think many countries, including Canada, realized that they should help refugees?” spark deeper thinking. A concluding page provides ways for students to reflect on and extend their engagement with the topic.
Clear headings, short chunks of text, easy-to-see captions, and FYI boxes are used on every two-page spread. Red type is used to make key words stand out. A glossary and index are provided.
Sentences are short and simple in structure. Everyday language is used to explain important ideas.
