Urban Indian Education Research Summit (2nd, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, May 18-19, 2001). [Summary Report].
Indian Community School of Milwaukee, Inc., WI.
A second annual education summit examined research issues and research needs in urban American Indian education. This report summarizes three panel discussions and lists relevant articles, Web sites, and participants. An introduction by Linda Sue Warner discusses the Indian Community School of Milwaukee and its goals of preparing Indian students for lifelong learning in the context of traditional values; the need for better statistics on urban American Indians; and thoughts on developing a culturally relevant institutional review board for American Indian research. In the first panel session, Gerald Gipp, David Beaulieau, Carol Anne Hart, and Ernie Stevens, Jr., discussed research needs in Indian education, focusing on the role of tribal colleges, the Executive Order for a research agenda on American Indian educational research, and the economic and social well-being of urban Indian communities. The second panel session provided examples of current research in curriculum, policy, and leadership: "The Role of Language and Culture in the Education of Indian Children" (Tarajean Yazzi); "Exceptional Education" (Susan Faircloth); "Infusing Culture and Standards into the Curriculum" (Sandra Fox); and "Teacher - Research Project in the Fairbanks School District" (Alison Meadow). In the third session, small groups of participants proposed 14 themes for Indian educational research, including suggestions for variables and populations to be studied. The fourth session is "Incorporating Academics into American Indian Culture." (Katrina Coker, Amy Trom, and Carson Singer). (SV)
