The Indian in the Classroom: Readings for the Teacher with Indian Students.
Montana State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, Helena.
The status of the American Indian in society, particularly in education, is the focus of this publication. Readings are selected for the non-professional who is interested in or working with Indians. Many teachers, administrators, and others involved with Indian affairs have long noted the need for a convenient source of non-technical information on Indian culture, history, and education. This book of readings tries to fill that need. The book is divided into 8 sections, 7 of which are devoted to different topics of interest to teachers. The eighth includes bibliographies of high school level books (majority are annotated), records, newspapers, and movies about American Indians. The contents of this book are: (1) Indian contributions to American society; (2) dealing with other cultures; (3) Indian cultural values; (4) Indian history since the coming of the whites; (5) contemporary Indian affairs; (6) the Indian in the classroom; (7) Montana Indian groups; and (8) bibliography of American Indian materials.
