This collection of passages for Grade 4 provides students with close reading practice. As American settlers moved west, life changed for American Indians. They often lost their land and so much more. In the excerpts in this book, learn how the Navajo, the Sioux, and the Iroquois have struggled to keep alive the proud traditions important to their culture, while also becoming part of a modern community. What was the "place of suffering" for the Navajo? Did the U.S. government keep its promises to the Sioux? What kind of homes did the Iroquois build? Find the answers to these questions and more inside this book. Also included are places to pause and reflect on the text and opportunities to respond to the reading.
