Cultural Education--Iroquois Cultural Study for Elementary Grades.
Steele, Catherine
Presenting a sequenced cultural education program, this curriculum guide for an Iroquois cultural study for elementary grades concentrates on providing a supplemental classroom program to an existing social studies curriculum, though it is also aimed at teaching culture in Native American classes. Program objectives are to provide students with local cultural and historical background, to present a more accurate image of Native Americans, to make all children aware of other cultures, to provide resources to school staff for supplemental teaching, provide students with American Indian cultural background, to compare and contrast past and present Indian life, and to improve self-concept. Units on home-family and local community contain concept and objective sheets, sample lesson plans, activity sheets, sample worksheets, pictures, and evaluation sheets. The unit on study of other Native American communities contains only a brief outline of possible materials. The unit on home and family, to be taught first in its entirety, includes the following concepts: clan system, longhouse as a home, clothing, foods, and infant care. Priority concepts in the local community unit are Mother Earth, the confederacy, contributions, and preserving the culture; other concepts included are music, legends, games, travel, communication, arts and crafts. The guide lists teacher objectives for each unit and contains an annotated bibliography. (RS)
