The Navajo Social Studies Project.
The philosophy undergirding a social studies program developed for the BIA by the University of New Mexico is discussed to aid the teacher in helping Navajo children view with insight their own unique culture and the cultures about them. A beginning or pre-school teaching unit ("When I Come to School") dealing with easily mastered classroom activities is designed to familiarize the student with the classroom situation. A first grade unit based upon home situations ("When I'm at Home"), which emphasizes differences between Navajo and Anglo familial structures, is also included. Eleven additional units covering grades 2 through 12 are forthcoming. (DA)
