Chisholm, Anita, Ed.; Cardwell, Guyneth, Ed.
This resource guide presents curriculum materials that focus on American Indians and their culture. The materials were compiled at a national workshop that brought together educators from the United States and Canada to develop authentic cultural materials to enhance the educational experience of Indian students. The guide contains lessons in social studies, languages, language arts, science, health, art, reading, writing, personal development, family living, and physical education. The guide is organized into sections containing lessons for elementary, secondary, and higher education levels. At the secondary and higher education levels, American Indian literature, state and federal Indian policy, and cultural perspectives are addressed in the lessons. Each lesson consists of goals and objectives; concepts covered and cultural presentation; class activities; resources; and the name and address of the person who developed the lesson. (LP)
