Alaska Natives Course of Study.
Reisland, Jack
For a long time it was felt that the Tanana Native high school student needed a course of study in "cross-cultural" education emphasizing the Athabascan culture. Therefore, a course of study was developed to aid teachers of Athabascan high school students. The course was primarily to: (1) develop an awareness and appreciation of the student's cultural heritage; (2) develop an inherent sense of pride in the Native pupil; and (3) strengthen the student's identity with the unique aspects of his history and traditions which are rapidly disappearing from the rural Alaska scene. This paper presents the procedures used--work study groups, independent study, discussion groups, teacher lecture, audio-visual aids, pupil visitations, and guest speakers; general purpose; desired pupil skill development; course outline; and mini-courses attached to the core program. A partial list of materials used in Alaska Natives studies is included. (NQ)
