Indians of Nevada: Volume 6.
Dunn, Helen
As part of a continuing program designed to provide Nevada's school population with information that will facilitate greater awareness and understanding of past and present lifestyles and contributions of Native Nevadans, this curriculum guide might constitute a social studies unit on the history of Indian education for upper elementary and/or junior high schools. Areas covered are: (1) Primitive Times (emphasis on necessity for practical education, differences in education of males and females, and the role of elders as teachers); (2) Classroom Traits and Possible Causes (a list of traits and possible causes is given; for example, "a feeling of resentment, suspicion, and sometimes hatred" is correlated with early unfortunate contact with the white culture); (3) Important Facts of the Indian Pupil (this list touches on health education, home visitation, attitude changes, etc.); and (4) Important Phases in the Education Story (development of Indian education in Nevada is traced from the early "Ranch Schools" through "Day Schools" to the public school program instigated in 1934). Also included in this guide are a word study list (120 words) and a Nevada map (county boundaries and the historical territories of the Washoe, Paiute, and Shoshone Indian tribes). (JC)
