The Development of an Instructional Materials Center at the Institute of American Indian Arts, Santa Fe, New Mexico, 1970.
Blank, Ruth
The three objectives of this study are: (1) to identify the particular learning needs of the students at the Institute of American Indian Arts; (2) to evaluate the attitudes of the teachers, and the acceptance by the students of an instructional materials center program and (3) to describe the inception of such a program. It is noted that different traditions and language have created resistance to learning in a mono-cultural anglo-oriented school system. Changes in educators' attitudes, different forms of school direction and control, and innovative teaching methods are proposed for more effective educational programs. The instructional materials center program aims to overcome deficiencies in previous educational experience and provide materials for enriched learning, locally and to other schools. Further development of an integrated instructional materials center program requires additional facilities, equipment, materials and trained personnel in order to accomplish the objectives and specialized functions of a dynamic media and resource center for Indian culture.
