The Original Americans. An Experimental Teaching Unit.
There are five objectives included in this experimental teaching guide on the American Indian. They are to help the student: realize the divergence of culture among the Indian tribes; recognize the value of Indian culture to the survival of the European in a new land; be aware of the customs and commodities which we use and enjoy from our Indian heritage; understand that many of the "Indian Wars" were caused by misunderstanding between two cultures; and to become more familiar with some of the great leaders of the Indian nations. For each objective a list of activities, an outline of content, and a list of sources are given. A partially annotated bibliography of fiction and nonfiction sources concludes the document. SO 005 548 and SO 005 551 are documents in the series that also deal with the American Indian. (OPH)
