Gender in Canada: A Companion Workbook book cover

Gender in Canada: A Companion Workbook

This workbook is designed for first or second-year sociology of gender or gender studies courses, focusing on the Canadian context. It is divided into five topics – Theory and Concepts, Institutions, Work, Family and Intimate Relationships, and Bodies and Health.

This workbook does not replace a textbook, instructor teachings through lectures, class discussion, class assignments, or other standard undergraduate course materials. Instead, this is an activity book: a course companion, working alongside and with those course materials. It is designed to build competency, capacity, and confidence with course materials, concepts, and arguments. It does this by embracing the concepts of embodied learning, iterative scaffolding, and reflexive insight. “Embodied” means doing things with your body and not just your mind; “scaffolding” means breaking things down into constituent parts that can be gathered together to build something bigger; and “reflexive” means thinking about oneself in relation to broad concepts and contexts around us. The workbook presents four types of content.

  1. Each chapter has one or two pages of written content deemed “Insights to Think About,” which are summative guides to help students grab onto big ideas.
  2. The chapters also have “Words to Try,” encouraging a usable lexicon.
  3. Chapters have thoughtfully designed “Activities.” The activities help students to get ideas down, give those ideas meaning and order, and prepare students to do more engaged work in course conversations and higher-stakes assignments.
  4. Finally, each section ends with “My Insights On,” where students can record their “big picture” ideas and things they want to explore more in their course discussions and other assignments.

Subject(s): Organic chemistry

Due to the high price barrier, about half of Organic Chemistry students at KPU do not have access to the textbook. This has become a serious issue that significantly affects the learning outcomes for the course. The creation of this open textbook is intended to provide a solution to this problem and help students get success in this course.

The book contains ten chapters, with the contents cover from the basic concepts on chemical bonding, functional group, to stereochemistry, spectroscopy for structure determination (IR and NMR) and organic reactions (nucleophilic substitution, elimination, radical substitution of alkanes, addition and oxidation reactions of alkenes, preparation and reactions of alkynes).

Organic Chemistry is a challenging subject for lots students. To help readers understand the concepts more easily, simple and concise languages are intentionally applied in the book. The featured shaded textbox areas are included frequently in the book, where readers can find useful learning tips, reminder of common errors, comparison between similar concepts. To help readers develop the problem-solving skills, a small section labelled as “strategy” is usually given for the examples in the book. Readers are encouraged to try solving the problems by themselves with helpful hints provided in the “strategy”, and then compare their work with the detailed solutions provided afterwards.
