Discussion Guide for In the Footsteps of Crazy Horse
Though it is common for students to begin reading books like In the Footsteps of Crazy Horse on their own, teachers often read aloud a chapter at a time, or, students take turns reading aloud in small reading groups. Parents can do that, too, in the car or in the home. Reading a chapter aloud creates an opportunity for what reading specialists call “grand conversations,” which are active discussions of a passage or idea in the book. Below are passages for which you can have a grand conversation with your child, expanding what they know about Native peoples.
