A Bibliography of Navajo and Native American Teaching Materials = Dine K'eeji Naaltsoos Bee Nida'nitinigii. Revised Edition.
McCarty, T. L., Comp.; And Others
A revised annotated bibliography of Navajo and Native American teaching materials published between 1910 and 1982 (most from 1970 to 1982), compiled as part of the Title IV-B Navajo Materials Development Project, lists resources for teachers of Navajo and other Native American students. Most citations are of written materials, although some posters, non-textual materials and catalogs of audio-visual aids are described. The first two sections divide text materials by grade level and by language: 148 written primarily in Navajo (Section I), and 193 bilingual (Navajo-English) or primarily in English (Section II). Both sections cite: fiction and non-fiction; Navajo-based texts in social studies, history, mathematics, physical education, music and art; and teacher's guides to accompany texts. Items are listed alphabetically by author's last name; each citation contains: author's/illustrator's name; title; date/place of publication; grade level (often overlapping); content; graphics; size; recommendations; and availability. Subsequent sections list other materials to augment Navajo-Native American Studies programs: 9 audio-visual guides (Section III); 20 periodicals helpful to teachers of Navajo students (Section IV); 142 supplementary references on Navajo and Native American language and culture (Section V); and 11 curriculum development centers, 16 museums and libraries, and 14 publishers and materials distributors for additional resources (Section VI).
