Native American Interdisciplinary Unit.
Sorensen, Carol; Hoffmann, Donald; Boinczan, Joseph
This paper presents a cross-graded, thematic, interdisciplinary unit which grew from a Native American humanities unit. The 9-week unit addresses the plurality of intelligences, allows for cognitive bypassing and challenges students in critical thinking modalities. With a focus on the five groups of Native Americans (The Eastern Woodlands, Plains, West, Southwest, and Far North), the basic content was discipline-based, parallel, or multidisciplinary instruction with team teaching among science and math teachers and language arts and social studies teachers. The paper explains the steps in the planning process and the integrated and interactive work accomplished. Throughout the project, student interest was high, discipline problems were practically non-existent, and content was retained. (EH)
