Teaching in Rural Alaska: Journal of Applied Ambiguity, v3 n1 Win 1984
As a component of the University of Alaska's Cross-Cultural Orientation Program (X-COP), this journal provides a forum for rural Alaska teachers to share ideas and insights. Articles in this issue discuss: (1) the inadequacies of educational research for defining the essence of effective teaching; (2) making the classroom culturally compatible with the Yupik Eskimo community; (3) class activities and field trips concerned with water and water resources; (4) reducing snowmachine accidents; (5) organization and management techniques and teaching methods for the multigraded classroom; (6) developing relevant curriculum for rural Alaska schools through cooperative linkage of school districts and regional Native corporations; (7) problems encountered by rural teacher-counselors in preparing high school students for college admissions procedures; (8) changes in school-community relationships from the 1920s to the present on St. Lawrence Island (Alaska); and (9) reflections on a visit to a rural school on Cheung Chau Island (Hong Kong). This issue also contains poems, anecdotes, jokes, cartoons, responses to a survey of "X-COPers" on "What works" in the classroom, and lists of higher education contractors in Alaska and members of the X-COP network.
