PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Supporting Inuit, First Nations' and Native American Literature in the classroom

A Stranger at Home, written by Christy Jordan-Fenton and Margret Pokiak-Fenton and illustrated by Liz Amini Holms depicts the struggles an Inuit girl experiences while trying to adjust to life back home after attending a northern residential school for two years.

This novel study unit was created to support a single novel read-aloud, should a class set be unavailable. It has a duration of about three weeks, appropriate for grades 4-8 and integrates Language Arts and Social Studies learning outcomes.

This product is also available in a bundle: Fatty Legs and a Stranger at Home BUNDLE, that includes the first novel unit, Fatty Legs.

Comprehension strategies used in this unit are: connection, visualization, question, infer, and transform.

The lessons are designed to be printed / photocopied into student work booklets with a comprehension task for each chapter. An answer key and rubrics are provided.

Additional articles and links are provided to explore the multigenerational effect residential schools has had on the First Nations, Inuit and Metis people.

To obtain a copy of this book and others like it, I recommend checking out Strong Nations, an online bookstore supplying indigenous and Native American books. Not only do they have an extensive selection, they provide themed book bundles for all age ranges.
