Native American Career Education Unit. Living with the Land.
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 understand concepts involved in the management of natural resources, especially as they relate to traditional Indian values; understand the relationship between basic needs, resources, and waste disposal methods; and become familiar with occupations in the area of environmental and natural resource management. The six activities deal with the related subject areas of life sciences, ecology, and careers in these areas. 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 to the whole twelve-unit program is also available--CE 014 035.) (TA)
