Product Description
Encounter by Jane Yolen is a wonderful vehicle to discuss the realities of first contact among Native Americans and Europeans. Jane Yolen beautifully presents the realities of why Native Americans were so welcoming—and, the darker motivations of Europeans. This is a book which is accessible for young children, but also equally meaningful to older students. It presents a Native American perspective, rather than Anglo, which students need to understand in our multicultural world, especially since this is the backstory to our own existence as U.S. citizens. This is a must to bring history and the realities of the Native American experience to life. Included are your Activator, Mini Lesson, Activity, Wrap Up, and ELA Common Anchor Core Standard, as well as a wonderful partner writing assignment, with rubric, which allows students to demonstrate their understanding of perspective. Enjoy! Best, Rockermom
