It Works for Us! A Resource List of Teaching Ideas and Materials on Athabascan Culture.
Hinckley, Kay, Comp.; Holzmueller, Diana, Comp.
The Alaska Educational Program for Intercultural Communication (AEPIC) brought together teachers to share their practical methods of incorporating community-oriented, multicultural components into their daily teaching schedule. Designed as regional in nature to allow for a sharper focus on the area's Athabascan culture, the workshop was attended by 15 teachers from Independent school districts, Bureau of Indian Affairs schools, and Alaska State Operated Schools. These teachers represented both elementary and secondary levels, various discipline areas (science, social studies, language arts), and new and seasoned teachers who were actually doing multicultural and community-oriented things as part of their regular, everyday curriculum. This report presents: (1) 12 papers presented by the participants; (2) ideas and strategies brought out in conversation and summarized for easier reading; and (3) a listing of materials such as teacher and student references, Canadian materials, films, kits, newspapers, records, video tapes, funding sources, and Cross-Cultural Educational Development Program (X-CED) materials. Among the papers are: "Writing Social Studies Curricula on Native Cultures"; "Alaska Natives Course of Study"; "Comparative Athapascan Culture"; "Science in Rural Schools"; "Summer Camp"; and "Culturally Relevant Learning Situations for Athabascan Children".
