One of twelve instructional units in the Native American Career Education (NACE) program, this unit is intended to make Native American junior high school students aware of cooperative skills and of the cultural and economic context within which careers exist. Focus is on the subject areas of social development and health. The activities contained in the unit are titled as follows: You and Your Community, Native American Culture, How Native Americans Have Helped America Grow, How Have Different Ethnic Groups Helped America Grow? Looking at Parts of the World, and Part of the Universe. Each activity includes objectives, suggested teaching procedures, and student exercises, e.g. readings, questions to answer, games, simulations, project instructions, and other learning activities. Each activity is followed by suggestions for ways of extending learning and, where appropriate, additional resources are described. Student materials may be used as master copies for reproduction or as models for material development. A test designed to measure student mastery of the main objectives is included along with an answer key. (A guide for the whole twelve-unit program is also available--CE 014 035.) (TA)
