Welcome to the Inhabit Education blog! We’d like to tell you a little bit about us and what we’re planning to do in this space.
Inhabit Education is a Nunavut-based educational publishing company. Our mandate is to provide educators and parents with educational resources that are infused with authentic Northern perspectives, ways of life, and imagery. This weekly blog is a natural outgrowth of that mandate. We’re going to share educational resources and tools to help you foster literacy in your home and classroom, keeping Northern needs and perspectives in mind. Some topics you can watch out for in the future:
- Resources for fostering reading across different languages
- Inuktitut at home and in the classroom
- Book reviews
- Lesson plans
- Deeper looks at individual books
- Northern perspectives
- And more!
The young readers in your life will love the Nunavummi Reading Series. In the series, we publish both fiction and non-fiction at various reading levels, incorporating concepts that students are familiar with—counting, animals, family, and legends—within a Northern context. They’re educational and they’re also a lot of fun, books we hope readers want to come back to again and again. Each book is designed to teach literacy skills, share stories and information, and engage readers in order to foster a lifelong love of reading!
Our books are developed by education and language experts who want to share their knowledge with you on this blog. And we want to hear from you, too! We’d love to read your thoughts on our blog posts, what you think about our books, your tips and favourite resources for reading and sharing your culture, and more. Feel free to comment on any blog post, or get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For Northern students, these books provide a crucial opportunity to see themselves reflected in the stories, characters, settings, and information conveyed. For students south of Nunavut, our books may introduce cultural traditions and environments they’re not familiar with. The Nunavummi Reading Series is designed to support students across Canada in their reading development, so wherever you’re building your home or school library, the Nunavummi Reading Series is meant for you.
Qujannamiik! Thank you!
