Computer Storytelling Mathematics for Pueblo Indian Upper Elementary Level Students. Final Report.
Hakes, Judith A.
Details are provided of a project designed to develop an alternative, computer-based learning unit in mathematics and science for upper-elementary level Pueblo Indian students. A four- to six-week unit entitled "Pueblo Uses of Energy," which fused mathematical problem solving with science content related to the daily lives of Pueblo students, was produced. Fifth-grade students who participated in the field development attended Sky City Community School, a federal day school under the auspices of the Bureau of Indian Affairs. A microcomputer was used as the major mode of instruction to present material designed to introduce content and skills in a storytelling format, which capitalizes on one learning style of pueblo cupueblo culture.
