Seven directions: Making connections between literature and American Indian history
Stereotype or archetype? Myth or fact? Middle schoolers apply critical thinking skills to assess the validity of the images and story details in picture books portraying Native American history. The study begins with an examination of Susan Jeffers’ Brother Eagle, Sister Sky, listed as a book to avoid by the Oyate website. The plan details how to direct readers’ attention to the messages sent by illustrations and how to check the facts of a story. As a contrast, class members are introduced to Joseph Bruchac’s Between Earth and Sky: Legends of Native American Sacred Places and create their own compass rose.
Students unscramble sentences. In this sentence scramble activity, students identify familiar sight words and their pattern from the story Cat on the Mat by Brian Wildsmith. Students dictate sentences then cut them apart and rearrange them in correct order.
