Reservation Schools and 95-561: The Administrator and the Curriculum.
Foster, Carl G., Ed.; And Others
This collection of nine essays and reports which deal with issues of importance in the progression of Native American education was published by members of the Dine Teacher Corps Project '78 in an effort to stimulate the thinking of curriculum practitioners; content is aimed at affecting administrative styles and the construction and implementation of curriculum. An introduction relates a brief history of Indian Education and reports that the most fundamental need presently is for a change in point of view. Chapters one and two are devoted to the administrative leadership styles necessary for programming; the third and fourth discuss the administrator's role in the development of instructional programs; the fifth and sixth use specific bilingual programming to show the relationship a curriculum must have to particular Indian values, experiences, and needs; and the seventh, eighth and ninth chapters report studies on inservice, financial planning, and leadership programs which are designed to assist the administrator to successfully facilitate effective changes in Native American education.
