The Six Nations Series: Grades 7-11, Teacher Guide and Student's Guide.
This document consists of teacher and student guides that provide a historical overview of the Six Nations from precontact with the Europeans to the present day. The Six Nations consist of the Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca, and Tuscarora tribes. These tribes call themselves the Haudenosaunee and are often referred to as the Iroquois. The curriculum unit was designed to meet New York State 7th- to 11th-grade curriculum requirements. The student guide consists of sections for each of the Six Nations that include discussions of identity, village life, land (original land base to present-day land base), a brief history, contemporary issues, and scenes of contemporary tribal communities. Each section includes map activities and discussion questions. The teacher guide provides expanded information on each of the Six Nations; goals and objectives; information on treaties and the American Revolution; suggestions for coordinating curriculum with the resource guide "The Haudenosaunee, Past-Present-Future" and with the New York State Social Studies Syllabus; maps; a bibliography; answers to student discussion questions; and suggested student learning activities. Learning activities include student map projects; videotapes; oral reports; timelines; field trips; and interdisciplinary ideas for creative writing, math, literature, and science. Both guides include photographs and illustrations. (LP)
