Roots and Branches: A Resource of Native American Literature--Themes, Lessons, and Bibliographies.
Susag, Dorothea M.
This resource book offers teachers an opportunity to learn and to teach about Native American literature in context. Starting with a discussion of themes, rationales, and subthemes, it moves to an examination of the historical and literary contexts that frame the literary work of Native peoples. Lessons, units, and activities in the book keyed to grade level offer practical support. Detailed annotated bibliographies direct the teacher to other resources--historical, cultural, and educational. Appendixes address geographical contexts, historical context, stereotypes, cultural and spiritual contexts; and list North Central regional publications and commercial resources. (RS)
