Denakenaga' for Children. Lesson Plans for Teaching Denakenaga' (Minto-Nenana Tanana) to Children in Elementary Grades.
Thompson, Chad; Frank, Ellen
This curriculum for elementary school-level instruction in Denakenaga' is intended for development of oral native language skills. Included are plans for 60 25-minute lessons, arranged in 11 units: basic conversation; food and eating; hunting and animals; clothing and morning routine; weather; body parts; dogs and sleds; numbers; the village; cooking; and sitting, standing, and lying down. Each lesson contains oral exercises and games, and in later lessons, a list of needed materials and reviews. Flash cards and games, not included here, are available for use with the lessons. Three stories appropriate for this population, in both Denakenaga and English, are appended. (MSE)
