People of Native Ancestry: Curriculum Guideline for the Senior Division, 1981.
Ontario Dept. of Education, Toronto.
The guide provides the opportunity for teachers and students (Native and non-Native) to examine in depth many aspects of the life of Native peoples--in the Canadian context, in the context of North America, and in relation to the life of indigenous peoples of other countries. The resource guide of 17 units of study include objectives such as: an overview of the history and contemporary situation of the Canadian Indian (status, non-status, and Metis); an awareness of the social impact of cultural and human interaction; an appreciation for the differences among peoples and groups in Canadian society; an understanding of Native peoples through an examination of their culture, the relationship between Canada's Native peoples and Canadian law, and a global perspective on the contemporary situation of Canada's Native peoples; and an awareness of other indigenous peoples in the world. The guideline can be used as a basis for the development of a course for credit at the Secondary School Graduation level or a course for credit at the Secondary School Honour Graduation level. Each unit of study is presented in outline form with an introduction, unit objectives, content, sample activities, and list of resources (books, films, and videotapes). (ERB)
