Population, Ecology, and the American Indian: A Native American Curriculum Unit for Middle and High School. NATAM XII.
Raveling, Ronald R.
As one of the units on Native Americans developed by public school teachers enrolled in a University of Minnesota extension course on American Indian education, this middle- and high-school unit has as its overall objective to illustrate 2 concepts: (1) the need for careful population planning and (2) how the American Indian--a model of successful, pre-white-man adjustment--was forced to balance his numbers with his environment. The unit provides information pertaining to the population emergency, a student-attitude survey related to population and pollution, material on how the American Indian civilization adjusted its life-style to forestall the situation facing modern man, and a 4-item bibliography. Grade level pertinence is left to the individual teacher's discretion. (MJB)
