The Country of Wolves Graphic Novel Study
This unit is geared towards Grades 7 and 8 intermediate students. It consists of a series of three lessons focused on the graphic novel The Country of Wolves, retold by Neil Christopher. This book study seeks to examine the history of Inuit traditional beliefs through the images and text presented in the graphic novel. As they participate in reading, writing, oral communication, visual depiction, and community inclusion activities, students will become more knowledgeable on the topics of study: Inuit Traditional Beliefs, Shamanism, and the Inuit Traditional Relationship to the Environment. Students will emerge from this unit with knowledge of Inuit Traditional Beliefs and the ability to share what they have learned with the next generation.
