Navajo Materials For Classroom Use: K-12 Curriculum Directory (Preliminary Edition).
Johnson, Gene, Comp.; And Others
Compiled as part of Title IV-B Materials Development Project at Rough Rock Demonstration School, the bibliography attempts to address: (1) what Navajo-based materials already exist and are available; (2) where Navajo curriculum development is currently taking place; and (3) what needs exist at the present stage of Navajo curriculum development. Materials listed fall into two broad categories: those written primarily in Navajo (132 citations), and those which are bilingual (Navajo/English) or which are written entirely in English (156 citations). Sections I and II contain information on written materials dated from 1949 to 1981--fiction and non-fiction readers, Navajo-based texts on social studies, science, history, mathematics, physical education, music, and teacher's guides which accompany textual material. Materials are first divided into grade levels, then cited alphabetically by author's last name. Each citation includes author's name, title, date and place of publication, grade level, content of material, graphics, size, recommendations for use, and availability information. Section III provides a directory of 8 major Navajo and Native American audio-visual resources; Section IV lists 14 major periodical publications; Section V contains 129 citations on Navajo and Native American culture and language; and Section VI provides a descriptive listing of 44 curriculum development centers, libraries, museums, and publishers.
