I have been a high school humanities teacher for seven years now where I have experience teaching both novel studies as well as teaching controversial topics in the classroom. I have experience teaching about the history of Canada and the relationship between the Canadian government and Indigenous peoples who live in Canada. Through my Social Studies classes, I have had discussions on controversial issues and am able to discuss this content appropriately. 
The book, the Marrow Thieves, as well as a writing utensil and paper.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This book contains mature content such as violence, death, gore, racism, abduction, alcohol use, sexual assault, and imprisonment. If you are unsure how this will impact your student please pre-read the book before the class and let me know if you have any questions or concerns. 
We will be using the book, The Marrow Thieves, for this book club study.
