Great resource for those who teach using the novel The Birchbark House by Louise Erdrich. It is directly aligned with the Ready Gen and Journeys curriculums. This is best suited for students who struggle to access the text. A condensed, easy to read reference of each chapter that still contains the content and larger meanings throughout the text. Perfect for ELL students or students with disabilities. The chapter book is a reading level T but these chapters range from level O- Q. This resource also has great discussion prompt questions or higher thinking level questions. This allows for the students to collaboratively work on understanding deeper meanings within the text.
