Montana Indian Law-Related Education Model Curriculum Guide.
Monprode-Holt, Lorrie; And Others
This curriculum guide, it is hoped, will become an integral part of the social studies curriculum for all Montana students. Focusing on law-related education themes and concepts, six broad-based themes are covered: responsibility, authority, privacy, justice, spirituality, and environment. These six themes are found in the sample lessons under the heading "ILRE [Indian Law-Related Education] Themes." Teachers will also find within each model unit or lesson under the heading "ILRE Concepts," a list of more specific law-related concepts and topics such as sovereignty, jurisdiction, case study, and appellate court. Related documents included with the curriculum guide are: "Indian Law-Related Education Lessons," divided into ILRE lessons for K-2, grades 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12; "Many Nations in One: A History of Federal Indian Policy"; "From Boarding School to Self-Determination," a unit written to supplement the curriculum of intermediate and secondary teachers; "Montana Tribal Constitutions" for the Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, the Fort Belknap Indian Community of the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation, the Northern Cheyenne Tribe of the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation, the Crow Tribe of the Crow Indian Reservation, the Chippewa Cree Indians of the Rock Boy's Indian Reservation, the Blackfeet Tribe of the Blackfeet Indian Reservation, and the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of the Flathead Indian Reservation; "References," including resource choices for school library media centers and classroom libraries, videos, and films; "Directory of Indian Education Programs in Montana"; "Evaluating American Indian Textbooks & Other Materials for the Classroom"; "Montana Indians: Their History and Location," which provides information on the contemporary status of Montana's Indian groups; and "The Tribal Nations of Montana: A Handbook for Legislators."
