A unit developed by Adrienne Gear titled We Are All Connected. This unit was shared on the BCTLA website. It includes Reading Power strategies throughout the unit and introduces concepts of aboriginal themes to students through picture books. Each week two books are compared. Please be mindful that these books are not from a Yukon First Nations perspective.
A good article to remind us that we shouldn't be using reading levels to rank children. When teaching students to read, while giving them access to books they are able to read, we want to, at the same time, develop a love of reading. It is by offering choice that students can find books that both interest them and is accessible to them.
