Implementing an Instructional Media Center at Stewart Indian School.
Nevada Univ., Reno.
Purposes of this project were to organize an operational teaching-learning center at Nevada's Stewart Indian School and to provide teachers with the required in-service instruction in the use of media and teaching resources. The media center is designed around the theory that inquiry, self-direction, and independent study must be based on a trust in student ability to carry through a self-directed and teacher-directed study program. The in-service program has 3 major components: (1) the development of basic understanding of media utilization, (2) the conducting of 2 one-day workshops and numerous conferences with individual teachers, and (3) the provision of an intensive 2-week media workshop for selected teachers. Implementation of the media center is discussed in the document in terms of existing facilities, student needs, staff requirements, selection and accessibility of materials, need for cultural enrichment materials, and evaluation. The appendix contains such items as a diagram of facilities, a pupil behavior and attitude checklist, and a bibliography of California and related Indian materials. (LS)
