A variety of comprehension questions to the novel Fatty Legs by Christy Jordan-Fenton and Margaret Pokiak-Fenton. Based on a true story, 8-year-old Olemaun (Margaret) desperately wants to learn to read, even though this means leaving her village located in the northernmost regions of the Northwest Territories. Confronted with relentless pressure, her father finally agrees to allow her to make the long trek to attend school, but not before he warns her of some of the horrors of going to a residential school. The questions range from factual to quotational to inferential. Some of the questions require Internet access as well, though access to a reliable atlas will work in a pinch!
