Teaching a Pre-Columbian Culture: The Iroquois. A Guide Unit for 7th Grade Social Studies. Revised.
Hertzberg, Hazel W.
Presented in this curriculum guide are teaching techniques to help the seventh grade teacher introduce pupils to a unit study on the Iroquois Indians. The pamphlet describes classroom procedures by which students learn the techniques for studying any culture through an intensive study of one local culture. The culture unit uses all the social science disciplines, including archaeology, but is organized in terms of the categories of anthropology. Part I gives some introductory exercises which will help student development, understanding, and analysis of culture. The section is useful as an introduction to any unit on culture. Part II deals with the pre-Columbian culture of the Iroquois before the arrival of the Europeans. It also briefly discusses subsequent Iroquois history. Part III contains annotated lists of useful instructional and reference materials. (Author/JR)
