PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Supporting Inuit Literature and Legends in the Classroom

Kaugjagjuk, written by Marion Lewis and illustrated by Kim Smith, is a centuries old Inuit tale, orally passed down from generation to generation. From the perspective of an orphan, Kaugjagjuk, overcoming hardship and adverse conditions thrust upon him, students learn how harsh life can be in the North while embracing the mysticism of the Arctic.

This unit supports reading strategies such as visualization, connection, summarizing, and sequencing and builds on story/tale concepts with planning pages for students to write and publish their own version of this tale in a mini-book.

Easy to use reading response pages have been created for each lesson; as well as student evaluation and teacher assessment rubrics for each page.

To obtain copies of these books 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.
