Supporting Indigenous Resources for Inclusive Learning for Elementary School Students
This product is featured in my blog! To find out how I use this unit in my class, follow the link: https://www.infusingindigenouslit.com/post/and-along-came-trickster-tales
This unit is based on the scholastic series graphic novel set, Trickster Tales: Wesakechak Tales, created by Chris Kientz and Joseph Naytowhow.
The stories are not included in this unit, but can be purchased through Scholastic Canada.
These tales are perfect for integrating reading strategies and Indigenous literature with a whole class using one read aloud book or in smaller literacy groups.
This unit can be printed out in its entirety as a student response booklet to be used in reading groups, literature centres, or a whole class study. Or, individual lesson response pages can be printed individually to support a particular reading strategy or book.
This unit is suitable for grade 2, 3, 4 and 5. With eight books/activities the unit could take between 2-3 weeks.
Reading strategies used in this unit to explore the tales are: Summary, Connection, Visualization, Compare and Contrast and Infer.
Included is a 10-page student response booklet, answer key, and assessment rubric.
