Indians of Northwest California: History/Social Science and Literature Based Curriculum Units.
Supahan, Sarah, Ed.
This curriculum guide was developed to provide material about the Indian culture of Northwest California for students in grades K-6. Many of the units were developed for a specific grade, but can be adapted for older or younger children. The material can be integrated with such curricular areas as language, literature, social studies, science, and math. The first seven units, designed to adhere to the California State History and Social Science Framework, can be used as a supplement to the adopted text. Subjects include education, tribal law, technology, housing, and traditional food. The last five units correspond to the California State English and Language Arts Framework. Each of the units center on a traditional Native American story. For three of the units, a corresponding video is available. All units include objectives and rationale for the material; background information about the culture of the Indians of Northwest California, particularly the Hupa, Karuk, Yurok, and Chimariko tribes; learning activities that follow the main theme of the unit; endnotes and a bibliography; and unit quizzes. This guide contains numerous photographs and maps. (LP)
