Comparative Athapascan Culture, Grades 5-12.
Stricks, Jim
The social studies unit presented in this paper is intended to continue for one semester. Its purpose is to develop a greater understanding of the student's: (1) own history and cultural heritage and (2) self growth. Designed so that the students themselves are the researchers and explicators of their own cultures, the unit allows the students to amass information which will help them in explaining who they are to others. The main strategy is to compare the student's own culture with that of another similar, yet distinctly different, group of people--the Navajo of Arizona, who are also Athapascan speakers. Activities are coordinated with a similar class in Navajoland to allow useful comparisons to be made between the 2 groups. This paper presents the unit's (1) main ideas and related ideas; (2) objectives; (3) initiating and culminating activities; and (4) developmental activities. Sixteen sources dealing with the Alaskan Athapascans are cited. (NQ)
