Teaching Native American Students: What Every Teacher Should Know
Morgan, Hani
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v75 n6 p44-47 Feb 2010
Many Native American students have problems in traditional American schools--the dropout rate of these students indicates this. Research suggests that one reason may be a school district's neglect for the learning style or culture of this group. Research also suggests that traditional classroom environments often interfere with the way Native American children learn. If Native American students are to reach their full potential, teachers need to understand their preferred ways of learning. To teach effectively, the author suggests educators to be aware of cultural and learning differences. Once this understanding is gained and when they are aware students' differences, teachers can introduce tasks to teach students skills they have likely avoided or failed to acquire.
