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

Fatty Legs, and A Stranger at Home, written by Christy Jordan-Fenton and Margret Pokiak-Fenton and illustrated by Liz Amini Holms depicts the hardships an Inuit girl experiences while attending a northern residential school and her unexpected struggles reintegrating back into her community.

These novel study units were created to support a single novel read-aloud, should a class set be unavailable. They have a duration of about three weeks each, appropriate for grades 4-8 and integrates Language Arts and Social Studies learning outcomes.

Student workbooks have been created to accompany each chapter with an answer key and assessment rubrics.

Both units, Fatty Legs, and A Stranger at Home, are also available for individual purchase.

Comprehension strategies used in these units are: connection, visualization, question, infer, and transform.

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.
