Book Description

Cànan tro Òrain is an open online Scottish Gaelic language educational resource for instructors. It is a compilation of language and culture lesson plans based on Gaelic song from a group of instructors. Teachers are encouraged to use these lessons and adapt them to their individual needs.

Cànan tro Òrain has a diverse array of lesson plans organized around Gaelic songs, some based on Canadian compositions and others on songs brought over from Scotland. Instructors may consult our finding guide to assess which lessons best support their teaching needs. Whether one is delivering a lesson to a group of beginners or advanced learners, to children or to adults, or if there is an interest in delivering a lesson inclusive of grammar instruction or Gaelic cultural elements, we anticipate there is a lesson to suit their needs.

The text within these chapters has been augmented with links for easy access to glossary terms, audio, video, worksheets, external websites, and other materials that will be helpful to successfully deliver lessons.
