Values & Awareness. A Programmed Reader Utilizing the Technique of Controlled and Directed Projection through a Bilingual Approach. Career Education and the American Indian Series. Final Report.
Ross, Donald D., Comp.; Bryde, John F., Comp.
Focusing on the cultural needs and values of the American Indian child, this programed reader is designed to develop a sense of prideful awareness of self as an individual and as an Indian. Developed as part of a Career Education series, this reader is divided into three sections and uses the technique of controlled or directed projection. The first section, utilizing illustrations only, presents five pictures which focus on the Indian child himself and twenty-five pictures which pertain to five Indian values (bravery, generosity and sharing, individual freedom, adjustment to nature, and Indian wisdom). Teaching instructions and suggested questions/responses for discussion accompany the pictures. Section 2 addresses itself to the immediate family through the presentation of forty-eight pictures with underlying script. These pictures seek to develop the child's awareness of his relationship to each family member and also incorporate the five values presented in section 1. Teaching instructions and a glossary of the ninety-eight words used in section 2 are included. Section 3 seeks to develop the child's awareness of himself in relation to his community and for the first time introduces the non-Indian in the illustrations and text. Teaching instructions and a glossary of the 211 new words used in section 3 are included. Sections 2 and 3 incorporate the illustrations with captions in both Lakota (Sioux) and English. New words are introduced gradually and repeated frequently, and the structure of the text is extended from very simple phrases to the more complex structure of the short story. (A set of learning modules of similar subjects and grade levels is available--see note.) (BM)
