Selecting Diverse Resources of Native American Perspective for the Curriculum Center: Children's Literature, Leveled Readers, and Social Studies Curriculum
Meyer, Nadean
Education Libraries, v34 n1 p23-32 Sum 2011
Biased and inaccurate information about Native Americans continue in children's resources and remain in many of today's curriculum centers. While Native American students remain a minority in schools, accurate information is vital for understanding contemporary society and our history by both Native and non-Native students. Many states including Washington State are creating tribal sovereignty curriculum and adding tribal perspectives to their state curriculum. Valuable print and digital resources and sources of continuing selection assistance are suggested to increase the holdings of today's curriculum center in three areas: children's literature, leveled readers and social studies curriculum. (Contains 25 resources.)
