Native American Career Education Unit. Cooperation.
Far West Lab. for Educational Research and Development, San Francisco, CA.
One of twelve instructional units in the Native American Career Education (NACE) program, this unit is intended to help Indian junior high school students develop cooperative group interaction skills, particularly those needed to resolve group conflicts, and to realize the importance of understanding values. Focus is on the subject areas of social development and health. The six activities contained in the unit deal with the importance of group cooperation, the general nature of conflict, the importance of resolving group conflicts, the nature and cause of five kinds of group conflicts, the importance of values in the problem-solving or decision-making process, and the importance of cooperative interaction skills. Each activity includes objectives, student materials, and suggestions to the teacher on how to use them. Student exercises consist of 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 with each unit, along with an answer key. (A guide for the whole twelve-unit program is also available--CE 014 035.) (TA)
