This is an intermediate level fictional novel study based on events surrounding the building and demise of Canada's iconic supersonic jet fighter, the Avro Arrow. I have created a curriculum guide that incorporates aspects of reading, vocabulary, history, and novel study. It also has an extensive suggested reading list and other support materials.
I can personally attest to the accuracy of the historical detail, having grown up in west-end Toronto in the 1950's, and become an Arrow aficionado.
I have also made available a paper written by a Canadian associate professor friend of mine at American University in Washington, DC, that supports the Arrow story from an American viewpoint, one seldom heard in Canada. Click here:
