Touching Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelsen is a great book about how if we take our time to learn from the past, we can become a better person.
This novel supports:
* understanding character,
* understanding how setting affecting character and events
* the use of flashbacks.
* how first impressions affect us
* the idea of what goes around comes around
A wonderful and powerful way to teach students the consequences of anger and bullying. Great for the middle school teacher.
