Nashdoi Dini K'eji Naaltsoos Wolta Bo'ho'aa'igii (Cougar: Navajo Language Teacher's Guide). Book 3.
Rosier, Helen Cody
The teacher's guide accompanies the student-reader workbook of "Nashdoi." Organized in the same format as the "Ch'al" and "Chaa" books, "Nashdoi" builds on the vocabulary introduced in those two readers. The consonant "x," 14 new vowel environments, 7 new diphthong environments, and 102 new words are introduced. This teacher's guide is organized so that a copy of the students' reader-workbook page and the instructions for that page appear together. Specific activities are provided for oral lessons, dictation, and blending syllables. Oral lessons, designed to introduce new sound-symbol associations, are placed in lesson sets of one to three oral lessons throughout the guide. Each set of lessons is to be completed before students continue to read in the student reader-workbook. If additional oral lesson activities are needed, the pre-reading section of the "Ch'al" teacher's guide provided a variety of activities that may be used as supplemental lessons. Small instructional groups (6-10 students, grouped according to individual needs, progressing at similar rates) are suggested. Additionally, the guide suggests reading lessons should be 20 to 30 minutes in length, with 2 daily reading periods desirable. (AH)
