American Indian Supplement to the National Standards for Social Studies Education.
Bureau of Indian Affairs (Dept. of Interior), Washington, DC. Office of Indian Education Programs.; ORBIS Associates, Washington, DC.
This document adapts the U.S. national standards for social studies for use in schools serving American Indian students. Compatible with the national standards, this supplement is broken into material for early grades, middle grades, and high school and is organized around the same 10 thematic strands: culture; time, continuity, and change; people, places, and environments; individual development and identity; individuals, groups, and institutions; power, authority, and governance; production, distribution, and consumption; science, technology, and society; global connections; and civic ideals. For each grade level and thematic strand, a hypothetical tribal-specific example illustrates the application of standards in classroom practice. Relevant performance expectations from the national standards are indicated with each example. This document is also intended as a guide for American Indian nations that are developing their own tribally specific standards for social studies education. A section of the national standards document is included that outlines performance expectations for each thematic strand and grade level. (SV)
