Achieving Aboriginal Student Success: A Guide for K to 8 Classrooms is written for teachers with First Nations, Inuit or Métis students in their classrooms or those teachers searching for ways to infuse authentic Aboriginal perspectives into the curriculum. Pamela Toulouse, well-known speaker and educator has developed a must-have resource for all elementary educators. The author provides classroom-management techniques, assessment tools, suggestions for connecting to Aboriginal communities as well as teaching strategies and background information for the teacher. Chapters 1 to 5 includes teaching strategies, lesson ideas, outlines for full units, classroom management techniques, assessment tools, and suggestions for connecting to the community. Chapter 3 explores Character Education and the Seven Goodlife Teachings (also known as the Seven Grandfather Teachings). Chapter 5 contains Seasonal Lesson Ideas and the 13 Moons of the Anishinabek. The second half of the book of the book includes two sets of culturally and grade-appropriate literature-based lesson plans for students in kindergarten to grade 8. The first set of lessons consists of activities about some of the 500 Nations and their contributions. The second set of lessons consists of examples of best practices in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and presenting. All lessons include background information, materials list, preparation guide, activity instructions and worksheets, ways to extend the activity, and assessment suggestions. The lesson plans can be implemented immediately and effectively in the school environment. Answer keys and a glossary of key terms can be found at the back of the book. All glossary words appear in bold the first time they are used in the text. The story of Turtle Island and several maps can be found in the appendices, as well as a list of First Nations of Canada. This valuable resource is an important addition to the teacher resources literature. Highly recommended. To preview a sample from this title see:
