Limited English Proficiency Students in Wisconsin: Cultural Background and Educational Needs. Part III: Native Americans (Menominee and Oneida).
Knop, Constance K.
A training manual was developed to acquaint teachers and administrators with the history, cultural background, and educational needs of Menominee and Oneida students in Wisconsin. This manual is one of three such manuals which are intended for use with allied audiovisual materials. Historical attempts to meet the needs of limited English proficient students in Wisconsin and the United States are reviewed, and aspects of different types of educational programs for minority students in Wisconsin are outlined. Following a discussion of the culture and educational needs of Menominee and Oneida students, brief essays are presented on such topics as stereotyping, the plight of the American Indian, and what not to teach about American Indians. The associated tapes and suggested readings are listed and described. (RW)
