Preparing School Personnel for American Indians. Some Exploratory Questions and Responses with an Annotated Bibliography.
Burdin, Joel L., Ed.; And Others
This exploratory paper is in the form of questions posed by ERIC, and answers from three educators at Arizona State University and one from the Southwestern Cooperative Educational Laboratory. The topics discussed include current conditions in Indian education and some of the improvements which have taken place during the past decade; the need to translate traditional Indian values into present day terms; the desirable objectives in Indian education; the special needs in the education of teachers for Indian schools and the social, psychological, and historical attitudes which they require; the need for instructional materials which will be meaningful to the students; the organization, research, and financing involved in building an effective educational program; and some thoughts on future developments. An 80-item annotated bibliography is divided into the following sections: 1) Research and Development, 2) Teacher Aide Programs, 3) Orientation Programs, 4) Workshops and Institutes, 5) Bibliographies, and 6) Index to Journals of American Indian Education.
