People of Native Ancestry, A Resource Guide for the Intermediate Division.
Ontario Dept. of Education, Toronto.
To provide a foundation for study of the past and present life of Canada's original people, this resource guide for teachers of native and non-native intermediate students presents 17 study units that can be integrated into existing subject areas or used to build Native Studies courses. Rationale for the guide and for Native Studies is to help schools meet needs of students from different cultural backgrounds and to provide them with cross-cultural experiences. Characteristics and particular needs of native adolescents are explored, along with reasons for non-native students to take Native Studies. Under a general heading of cultural heritage and contributions of native people, the guide offers individual units on: contributions and cultural arts of native people; Metis and nonstatus Indians; native literature, religions, women; and impact of European cultures on native people. Under a heading of contemporary life are units on: aboriginal rights, claims, treaties; educational systems; government involvement; native communities, economics, organizations; origin and perpetuation of stereotypes, the Indian Act; and transition to a new community. The guide also contains sections on unit or course planning, teaching strategies, vocational curriculum for native adolescents, and curriculum evaluation. Among resources listed are a bibliography, audio-visual aids, sites, periodicals, and resource centers. (RS)
