The Whole Pole Catalogue of Exemplary Programs in Circumpolar Education. 1992-3 Edition.
Education and Resources Group, Inc., Chelsea, MA. Roger Lang Clearinghouse for Circumpolar Education.
This catalog identifies exemplary educational programs endorsed by the Roger Lang Clearinghouse for Circumpolar Education. The Clearinghouse was established in 1989 to promote local control of Native education in the Arctic regions of Alaska, Canada, Greenland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia. Major challenges facing communities, educators, and researchers in the Arctic include: developing genuine culture-based materials; redefining the goals of schooling; developing new materials and programs; conducting research pertaining to instruction in traditional Native sciences; correcting deficiencies in science and math education; translating research by Arctic scientists into materials for school and community use; and identifying additional funding. This catalog describes 28 programs developed by teachers and administrators in elementary, junior high, and secondary science; elementary and secondary interdisciplinary programs; cultural education programs; teacher education programs; and programs involving educational evaluation and school district reorganization. Each profile includes grade level and contact information. Also included is information on library and other instructional resources related to circumpolar education, criteria for exemplary programs and a program nomination form, and a Clearinghouse publication order form.
