People of the Prairies: A Norwegian and German-Russian Curriculum Guide.
Tabbert, Jon Charles, Ed.; Peterson, Fredrick E., Ed.
The guide presents secondary level units designed to promote understanding of the two largest ethnic groups in North Dakota, the Norwegians and the German-Russians. The book is presented in five parts. Part I provides an historical overview of the Norwegian and German-Russian migration to North Dakota. Part II presents three Norwegian units on mythology, language arts, and art. Students compare Norwegian myths with other mythologies, investigate contributions to society by outstanding Norwegians, and create traditional Norwegian art. Reproducible patterns for art work are included. Section III examines German-Russian geography, history, and social studies. Students trace family ties, the migration of German-Russians, prepare a German-Russian meal, and construct a scale model of a pioneer home. Maps, recipes, and instructions for constructing the home are included. Section IV contains brief descriptions of sociology, speech, language arts, humanities, social studies, and home economics units. Section V contains a bibliography and a list of resource organizations. Norwegian recipes, an outline of ethnic characteristics, and a pedigree chart are included in the appendix. (KC)
