Learning of the Indian People. Indian Ethnic Heritage Studies Curriculum Development Project, 1974-75.
Seven lessons comprise this unit on the education of the Indian people, covering past and present reservation schools for children, adult education, and the involvement of parents in their children's education. Intended for intermediate grades, each lesson contains objectives, four activities, and evaluation. It is necessary to teach the lessons in sequence so that students can understand the time line of the past, transition period, and present. For example, lesson 3 is about learning in schools on the reservation. Its activities are to read the narrative about the family and school life of Elijah Blackthunder, interview parents or guardians about their school days, write a reaction paper to a visitor speaking in an Indian dialect, and answer a question about reservation schools in paragraph form. Some lessons may require more than one day to complete. An accompanying cassette tape is available from Audiovisual Center, Black Hills State College, Spearfish, South Dakota 57783 ($1.50). (ND)
