Native American Literature: Montana and Northcentral Regional Publications.
This annotated bibliography is designed to help Montana K-12 teachers integrate authentic Native American literature into their curricula. A thematic approach to literature is encouraged, so that students may make meaningful connections between the classroom and their personal worlds. Accordingly, the entries are categorized according to the following themes and instructional levels: remembering the old ways (primary, intermediate, secondary); at home within nature (primary); at home within family (primary); at home within circles (intermediate, secondary); change and growth (intermediate); between two worlds (primary, intermediate, secondary); lifeways and stereotypes (intermediate, secondary); and cultural and personal loss and survival (secondary). The approximately 120 entries were produced by Northwestern and North Central publishers, including the Montana Office of Public Instruction, and by seven Montana tribal communities: Blackfeet, Crow, Flathead (Salish/Kootenai), Fort Belknap (Assiniboine/Gros Ventre), Fort Peck (Assiniboine/Sioux), Northern Cheyenne, and Rocky Boy (Chippewa/Cree). Each entry includes genre, theme, grade level, annotation, and the tribal affiliation of text or author. Approximately 60 supplemental resources include materials that develop awareness of Native American culture and history and that help educators incorporate Native literature in the curriculum. (SV)
