Student activities and a teacher's guide comprise each of the ten lessons of this ethnic studies unit. The unit's goals are to focus on life, ways, and history of the Dakota/Lakota Indian people; include the transition period as well as their past and present; provide activities which are intended to improve the self-concept of students; utilize learn-by-doing activities; provide a variety of activities which will allow students to learn in different ways and at different rates; and provide content and suggested activities for the ethnic-heritage teacher at the intermediate-grade levels. Examples of some lesson titles are Friendship, Courage, Old Age, and Loneliness Dwelt in Our Minds as in the Minds of All People; We Are a nature-Loving People, Or Well-being Depends upon Our Closeness to Our Mother, the Earth; Let Us Tell You How It Was with Us; and Let It Be Known That We Have Just Cause. Activities include selected poetry or prose readings, discussion topics, and exercises. Materials are reproducible as student handouts. (ND)
