Supporting Metis, First Nations, Native American Literature in the Primary Classroom
Discovery of Self
is a bundle containing units supporting Julie Flett as an illustrator and author.
My Heart Fills with Happiness written by Monique Gray Smith, illustrated by Julie Flett
The Moccasins written by Earl Einarson, illustrated by Julie Flett
When We Were Alone written by David A. Robertson, illustrated by Julie Flett
Wild Berries written and illustrated by Julie Flett
Each unit contains several different lessons supporting the reading strategies: Connection, Questioning, Visualization, Inferring, Transitioning and Summarizing
The title of this bundle, Discovery of Self, was chosen because these lessons allow students to connect with the literature and articulate meaningful comparisons.
Other units supporting First Nations, Native American, Inuit and Metis Literature in primary classrooms are:
The Two Sisters A first Nations Native American Legend
When I was Eight and Not My Girl BUNDLE
Shi-shi-etko and Shin-chi’s Canoe BUNDLE
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.
