Product Description
Supporting First Nations/ Native American Literature in High School classrooms

Urban Tribes - Native Americans in the City, edited by Lisa Charleyboy and Mary Beth Leatherdale, is a compilation of First Nation people’s experience living in large urban areas; examining their struggles and successes.

By using reading strategies: connection, question, infer and transformation, students will gain a better understanding of the unique issues facing First Nation millennials in North America.

Some lessons included will ask:

Students to make connections, between the text and personal experiences, other texts and media, or world events/issues

Students to document and classify questions about the text and provide a possible answer to one of the questions

Students to interpret the meaning of specific texts

Students to analyze and make specific references to texts to support a feeling, connection, or new understanding

Included are:

Rubrics to the general response sheets
Links to the BC Curriculum "Big Ideas" (similar comparisons can be made in other provinces/states)
Variations of the response sheets

Other units that may be of your interest:

Sugar Falls - A Residential School Graphic Novel

Missing Nimama - Examining the multi-generational effect of Residential Schools and the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls

To obtain a 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.
