Teaching Respect for Diversity: The Oglala Lakota
Pass, Susan
Social Studies, v100 n5 p212-217 Sep-Oct 2009
Teaching about diversity and respect for others is a challenging task for today's educators--especially at the middle school level. This article describes successful attempts to do so at the sixth-grade level. These real-life experiences enhanced classroom learning and reached out to the community. The author hopes that other educators will duplicate this endeavor. Although the lessons described focused on the Lakota nation, educators can teach about any tribal culture by using this approach.
