This resource includes four reading passages about Joseph Brant (Thayendagenea). They deal with the role he played in colonial North America re the results of the Seven Years’ War and the American Revolution and the resettlement of the Iroquois nation in what is now Ontario.
1) The first page of the resource is a list of 16 vocabulary words used in the four passages. These are best completed as the students read each passage;
2) Following the vocabulary page, there are four one-page informational texts that chronicle the life of Joseph Brant from his birth in Ohio to his death in Burlington, Ontario. The four together are about thirteen hundred words in length. The first three passages include a “Discussion Point” which can be done orally with the students or can be answered in written form;
3) A page of questions, 6 in total, which require the students to show comprehension and interpretation of what they have read;
4) An answer key is provided for the vocabulary words and the questions. I have given more information in the answers than you might require from your students!
