general note
Series editors: David Bouchard, Robert Cutting. Literacy consultant: David Booth.
This resource honours the histories, cultures, world views, and knowledge of many Aboriginal peoples of Canada. First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students will delight in seeing themselves, their cultures, and their traditions reflected in the books. The memorable stories and characters in each book will allow all students to connect to the text, encouraging them to respond by sharing their own stories and experiences with one another. Each student book in this resource is carefully levelled using an extensive list of criteria. The series addresses individual reader’s abilities, allowing reluctant and struggling readers to grow with the program as their literacy skills improve. Each Turtle Island Voices traditional and modern story is accompanied by a Teaching from Turtle Island, which is a value that encourages students to become more empathetic. Students will learn about character education as they read stories that teach about respect, wisdom, honesty, love, bravery, humility, forgiveness, kindness, compromise, and determination. Each student book in Turtle Island Voices includes sentence starters or questions about the theme or teaching in the book. These sentence starters and questions invite students to connect to the past, connect to the present, and connect to the future. The topics in this resource offer many opportunities for teachers to link Aboriginal perspectives to existing curriculum in many subject areas, including Social studies, Language, Science, and the Arts.
