Indian Captive by Lois Lenski

Well now that the school year is winding down, we have finished our reading textbook (thank goodness!!!). I chased down one of my all time favorite books.....Indian Captive by Lois Lenski. If you have not read this book, it is a must read! Especially if you are a fan of historical fiction. This book tells the true story of Mary Jemison's capture by Indians. Although she is eventually offered freedom, she decides to live her entire life with the Indians. When I brought the book out, my students were not all! However, after the first chapter, they were hooked. Just tonight I found a literature circle guide to the book. Can't wait to see how my students answer the questions. I am also incorporating some of the questions from the Bloom's Taxonomy project. If you haven't used that project in the should. It's a fun and thought provoking project for students. Here is the link to the literature circle guide: Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! (and my students).
