Navajo Changes--A History of the Navajo People = Dinetahgi Lahgo Ahoodzaa--Dine Bahane. Teacher's Guide. Fifth-Eighth Grade Navajo Bilingual-Bicultural Social Studies Curriculum.
Wallace, Stephen T.; McCarty, T. L.
As an accompaniment to the grade 5-8 bilingual-bicultural social studies text focusing on Navajo history, the guide helps the teacher assist students through learning experiences designed to develop inquiry and social studies skills; reinforce Navajo and English literacy, communication, and math skills; and enhance appreciation and respect for Navajos. The guide contains general information on how to use the text and the guide itself, how to use language in the classroom, and how to evaluate student progress. It also contains detailed information on how to use the inquiry approach and on the role of questioning in the classroom. The teacher's guide is organized around chapters in the student text. For each chapter, the guide notes the purpose, the concepts, and the main ideas to be covered; lists the skills to be developed, the objectives to be achieved, the materials needed, and the suggested time for each activity; and describes numerous related teacher strategies and activities. At the end of the guide are reference lists for each chapter. (SB)
