Native People in the Curriculum.
Decore, A. M.; And Others
In summer 1982, at the request of Alberta Education, an evaluation study was undertaken of all learning resources presently listed in their publications "Alberta Social Studies Learning Resources for Elementary Schools" and "Alberta Social Studies Learning Resources for Secondary Schools, 1980/81," including recommended and required resources, as well as teaching units, Kanata Kits, and Alberta Heritage Learning Resources. A total of 246 named titles are included in the evaluation. The basis for the evaluation was the way native people are portrayed in the curriculum, and the way native-related issues are dealt with. This study was unusual in that so many different kinds of resources at all levels were evaluated, and so many categories of evaluation were included. This report is divided into two components, the report itself and an annotated bibiliography. Included in the body of the report are discussions of what was studied, how the study was carried out, general observations about the curriculum materials studied, and conclusions drawn from the study. The second, larger part of this report is an annotated bibliography (Appendix B) of books that provided the data for the body of the report. (AH)
