In order to support the theory that Indian students are culturally different in general and that their culture is good and can be utilized in instruction to help students learn, a review of literature, ideas, and materials are provided to help teachers utilize the "different" theory in their classrooms. Although most of the materials cited deal with reading and language instruction, many of the ideas and materials could be used in classes other than reading and language arts. The first article, concerned with teaching reading to Indian children, is followed by items on language development and language experiences. Next, various aspects of reading instruction are explored. A skills continuum for language arts examines skills goals for K-6. A section on inclusion of Indian culture materials provides guidelines, bibliographies, and availabilities of materials suitable for American Indian students of all ages. The document concludes with bibliographies of books by and about the Sioux, Fort Berthold, Turtle Mountain, and other Indian literature. (BRR)
