Project NECESSITIES, Phase III. Volume VI: Secondary Program for High Potential Indian Students.
Abt Associates, Inc., Cambridge, MA.
It is recommended that this Project NECESSITIES material be used with high-potential Indian 10th, 11th, and 12th graders; however, the junior year may be best. It is also suggested that the social studies department of a high school plan to teach the material on a rotating-team basis. If no more than 1 period a day can be utilized, then the class should meet during the last period, when activities can extend beyond a set segment of time; also, if possible, the class should be held in a room that is not perceived as regular classroom. The following units are presented in this Teacher's Guide: Unit I, Fact and Opinion, which develops communication skills by assisting students in analyzing language; Unit II, Concept Formation, wherein students are introduced to critical concepts in social science: interaction, change, conflict, power, and valuing; Unit III, Nobody Loves a Drunken Indian, which engages students and teachers in a number of activities designed to illuminate the concepts which the book implicitly contains and which the students have learned to recognize from previous units; Unit IV, Drink, Drank, Drunk, which uses a board game developed by the project to deal with the effects of drinking in terms of job, life-style, and self-image; Unit V, The Allocation of Resources, which looks at the relationship between unlimited want and limited resources; Unit VI, Independent Projects, which describes ways of involving students in developing independent projects for class presentation; and Unit VII, Making a School, wherein the students make a utopian educational system.
