Micha-Ko Means People: A Curriculum Guide on the Coast Miwok.
Peterson, Bonnie Jayne
The curriculum guide on the Coast Miwok Indians includes an overview of the goals and objectives of social studies education and how they are used in an anthropologically based Native American social studies curriculum. The guide provides an educational rationale for using Native American curricula in the social studies program based on current learning theories, as well as background information on the Coast Miwok which synthesizes the available information on their prehistory, their historical interaction with white settlers, and the cultural aspects of Miwok life. It also includes: suggestions for further readings, methods, and materials used to achieve the goals and objectives; lists of available local resources, such as books, film, filmstrips, newsletters, and resource poeple; and materials teachers can use in developing their own curricula. Although the curriculum guide is intended primarily for elementary school teachers, it can be adapted to various grade levels if the developmental levels of the students are taken into consideration.
