"There's an Indian in Your Classroom." A Guide for Teachers.
Idaho State Dept. of Education, Boise.
Requests from teachers, interested individuals, organizations, and schools brought about the compilation of this general guide designed for teachers and non-educators concerned with Indian students. It is the result of numerous workshops conducted on the campus of Idaho State University. The document presents general information about geographic location of Indian reservations and groups, major problems of Indian education (language and cultural), and various instructional techniques designed to aid the students in their adjustment to the classroom and to cultural shock. A unit on the American Indian includes maps, Indian literature, a list of famous Indians (past and present), and a bibliography for further reading for students and teacher. (DK)
