Native Americans Today.
Through this lesson, teachers can use children's nonfiction books and the Internet to help their students develop accurate, substantive information about Native American people in the present day. During one 50-minute session, students will: participate in critical discussions about their knowledge of Native Americans; work cooperatively in small groups; access and gather information from Internet Web sites about Native Americans; and share information with others through discussion. The instructional plan, lists of resources, student assessment/reflection activities, and a list of National Council of Teachers of English/International Reading Association (NCTE/IRA) Standards addressed in the lesson are included. A present-day Native American book list and an ERIC Digest,"Teaching Young Children about Native Americans" (Debbie Reese), are attached. (PM)
