The American Indian Reader: Education.
Henry, Jeanette, Ed.
Analyzing American Indian education, the book is the second in a series designed for classroom use, teacher preparation, and the general reader. A collection of the most important articles published in "The Indian Historian" during the last 7 years, the book also introduces new materials prepared specifically for the series. The contents cover 7 educational areas: approach and philosophy; lessons of history; problems of today; critique and evaluation; film and book reviews; "relevant" education; and a curriculum sampling. Subjects have been arranged for resource use and suggest a guide to study in each area. This book attempts to present ideas as well as information. Certain ideas are offered to stimulate discussion and to develop more student participation, i.e., teachers must recognize that identity with one's heritage is natural, usually a cherished possession that cannot be demeaned, discredited, or devalued.
