Stutzman, Esther
An attempt to add substance to history, the curriculum guide for grades 7-8 presents in 12 culture guides information on American Indians for teachers to use as supplement materials to social studies texts. Each culture guide is accompanied with a teacher guide offering activities or discussion/quiz questions. Topics of culture guides encompass stereotypes of American Indians, origins of the people, culture areas in geography (Northeast, Southeast, Plains/Prairies, Southwest, Pacific Northwest, and Far North), culture area maps and overviews, tribes, government, subsistence (housing, food, clothing, and transportation), language, philosophy, oral literature, art, and the present. Additional information provided includes: a list of places to go on field trips, a historical timeline from 15,000 B.C. to the present, culture comparison chart form, a map to study the Western Movement, and a list of 70 Indian-subject films that have been approved by various Indian Education Parent Committees.
