Supporting Indigenous Resources for Inclusive Learning High School Students

This no-prep learning resource / reconciliation novel study, includes a 33 page student response booklet using comprehension strategies: Summarizing, Connection, Visualization, Questioning, Character Description, Infer and Transformation

This novel study unit is suitable for: a whole class novel study, smaller reading groups or as an independent/ individual novel study.

By far, Wenjack, is one of the best novels I had read, on this subject and in general! A creative masterpiece. It is Featured in my blog:

Wenjack - A Profound Loss That Continues to Affect

The tragic story, Wenjack, written by Joseph Boyden is fictional novel based on real characters and true events. The incredibly powerful story about Chanie Wenjack inspired Gord Downie to write a series of poems which later became songs and a graphic novel called the Secret Path. I would highly recommend all high school students read this story.

This novel unit would make an excellent focus of study for a Humanities, English or Social Studies class for a 3-5 week term. Students will be moved by this eye opening story.
