By the Work of Our Hands: Choctaw Material Culture. Teacher's Guide.
Reeves, Carolyn; Brescia, Bill
The teacher's guide for the reader "By the Work of Our Hands: Choctaw Material Culture" (RC 013 897) contains the following features for each chapter of the reader: background information for the teacher, important terms, the lesson plan, evaluation ideas, and references and resources. Subjects of chapters are stickball and rabbit sticks, drum making and hominy, basket making, beading, clothing, and use of the videotape "By the Work of Our Hands." A 59-item bibliography and appendices containing pictures, maps, a brief history of the Choctaw, and Choctaw Alphabet are included for use with designated chapters. The purpose of the background information is to provide the teacher with sufficient information to discuss the material culture of the Mississippi Choctaw from both the historical and contemporary perspectives. Little of the background information contained in the guide is included in the student's textbook, allowing the teacher to decide how much additional information to provide. Following the background information in each chapter are important terms which include both English and Choctaw terms, definition, and phonetic pronunciation. (ERB)
