Supporting Indigenous Resources for Inclusive Learning for Elementary School Students

Exploring the Intergenerational Effects of Residential Schools

This unit contains NINE, no-prep, easy to use reading response pages to support this important story. Early primary to mid intermediate will have success using these response pages, designed to focus on the following comprehension strategies: Summarizing, Connection, Visualization, Questioning, Infer, Main Idea and Problem/Resolution

This short story unit was created to support a single read-aloud book, should a class set be unavailable.

Perfect for Orange Shirt Day, Stolen Words written by Melanie Florence and illustrated by Gabrielle Gimard, beautifully introduces to young children, the subject of residential schools and one of the many Intergenerational effects it has had on Indigenous people.
