This interactive read aloud will be a fantastic addition to your Reader’s Workshop. The book “When I was Eight” is an intense story about a young girl in a residential school. This is the perfect read aloud if you are trying to introduce residential schools to your upper elementary or junior high students. This book facilitates great discussion and is a good way to introduce students to residential schools. Students are able to relate to characters in a book so much more than little paragraphs in a textbook. Therefore, reading stories about residential schools helps to build empathy and understanding in our students. Furthermore, the illustrations in this book are quite captivating and will help your English Language Learners to develop a more complete understanding of this Social Studies concept.

What is Included?

• Reading Response Exit Slips that focus on both reading strategies as well as gathering information about Residential Schools

• Interactive Read Aloud Prompts in two formats- sticky notes and full pages (Prompts include structures such as: Turn and Talk, Stop and Jot, Stop and Sketch, Think Aloud, Setting a Purpose for Reading, etc.)

• Ideas for activities for Before, During and After reading.

• Characterization Activity

This lesson works fabulously with a Reading Workshop framework or simply as a way to study the concept of Residential Schools with students.
