Logan, Eunice, Comp.
This report summarizes an education workshop held in Anchorage, Alaska, in January 1969 by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The immediate objectives were to encourage group discussion, share and evaluate ideas and learning experiences, and make preliminary plans for an educational program which would provide for the development and practice of skills, understandings, and values basic to responsible citizenship. The topics covered include: 1) teachers' comments on ways of promoting the self-image of the learner; 2) ways of implementing trends in social studies and some scientific methods for teaching this subject; 3) students' comments on their educational experiences; 4) the use of charts as teaching aids; 5) methods of teaching beginning reading and arithmetic; 6) the use of drama in elementary grades; 7) ESL techniques for primary and middle grades; 8) language arts; 9) dropouts; and 10) discipline. There are also extracts from panel discussions, including one dealing with the administrative problems involved in transferring the schools from BIA to the state system. (MBM)
