Smith, Julie M.; Jacob, Greg; Faaleava, Toeutu
Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v7 n2 p49-61 Oct 2007
The purpose of this project was to examine whether students in three sections of a team coordinated interdisciplinary course received the same educational experience. An essay covering three aspects of Native American history was evaluated for content and critical thinking. Significant differences were seen between classes in describing cultural differences that lead to conflict between Native Americans and Euro American settlers. Additionally, regardless of instructor approach, many students tended to maintain common stereotypical views of Native American cultures. (Contains 2 figures and 3 tables.)
