Supporte l’étude des Première Nations et les Inuit dans les salles de classe
My Fattly Legs reading Response unit has been entirely translated by the talented Jennifer Bernard!
Les bas du pensionnat written by Christy Jordan-Fenton and Margret Pokiak-Fenton and illustrated by Liz Amini Holms depicts the struggles an Inuit girl experiences while attending a northern residential school.
This novel study unit was created to support a single novel read-aloud, should a class set be unavailable. Student work booklets have been designed to extend the understanding of each chapter. The unit has a duration of about three weeks, appropriate for grades 4-7 and integrates Language Arts and Social Studies learning outcomes.
Comprehension strategies used in this unit 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.
